Audio: CANDLEMASS And ENTOMBED Cover Each Other To Celebrate SWEDEN ROCK MAGAZINE's 100th Issue

Sweden Rock Magazine, Scandinavia's biggest hard rock magazine and Sweden's top-selling music magazine, has joined forced with two of the country's most legendary metal bands. To celebrate Sweden Rock Magazine's 100th issue, CANDLEMASS and ENTOMBED have recorded cover versions of each other's songs for a CD single sent exclusively to the magazine's subscribers with issue #100, out January 8. It will not be available elsewhere.

CANDLEMASS has recorded a heavy version of ENTOMBED's classic death'n'roll song "To Ride, Shoot Straight And Speak The Truth". This marks vocalist Mats Levén's (KRUX, ex-YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, THERION) first official CANDLEMASS recording since he took over from the recently departed Robert Lowe.

ENTOMBED laid down a cover of CANDLEMASS' uptempo song "Black Dwarf" from 2005's comeback album "Candlemass".

These covers, which can be streamed below, will be performed live when CANDLEMASS and ENTOMBED take the stage for two special concerts at Sweden Rock Magazine's 100th-issue party at Debaser Medis in Stockholm, Sweden on January 26. There might also be a guest appearance or two. Tickets are on sale and cost SEK 220.
