CANDLEMASS Officially Launches Vocalist Search

Legendary Swedish doom metallers CANDLEMASS have posted the following message on their official web site:

"CANDLEMASS are currently looking for a singer. Preferably Swedish but the band will consider all options. [Requirements are as follows:]

* You are over 25, you love metal and doom, got a fantastic voice, sound great both in a high and low range.

* You got studio and live experience, and it’s of course also important that you are a good frontman.

Story continues after advertisement

* You are easy to work with, democratic, good listener with a positive attitude. A healthy sense of humour is also a plus!

"If you think you are the man for CANDLEMASS, email your links and info to the address below and make sure you got at least three songs for the band to listen to + photo and some info about you.

"You can email your links and info to voice @ up to Christmas (NOTE, DO NOT SEND MP3 OR OTHER LARGE FILES!! ONLY LINKS TO FILES ON THE WEB!!!). The band will take the time to find the perfect voice for CANDLEMASS."

CANDLEMASS announced on Oct. 23 that vocalist Messiah Marcolin was out of the band "for good."

As previously reported, Messiah Marcolin contacted BLABBERMOUTH.NET on April 28, 2006 to announce that he was leaving the band with no possibility of him rejoining. "We could not agree on how to do the new album," Messiah stated at the time while refusing to elaborate on his sudden exit.

CANDLEMASS' upcoming CD — a concept album about the road to ruin in the modern society — is being self-produced and will feature nine or ten tracks.

CANDLEMASS recorded four new songs with the help of producer Andy Sneap (NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, MACHINE HEAD) in late February at the Polar studios. At the time, Leif Edling said of the material, "The songs are pretty much in the same vein as the stuff on the [self-titled 2005] reunion album, maybe a bit darker."
