Fan-filmed video footage of CLUB COVERDOSE, the cover band featuring acclaimed Swedish hard rock vocalist Mats Levén (CANDLEMASS, THERION, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, TREAT, KRUX), perfoming on November 24 at On The Rocks in Helsinki, Finland can be seen below.

Levén's first official CANDLEMASS recording since he took over from the recently departed Robert Lowe will come in the shape of the CD single sent exclusively to Sweden Rock Magazine's subscribers with issue #100, out January 8, 2013. It will not be available elsewhere. The single features CANDLEMASS and ENTOMBED covering each other's songs. CANDLEMASS recorded a heavy version of ENTOMBED's classic death'n'roll song "To Ride, Shoot Straight And Speak The Truth".

CANDLEMASS played its first show with Levén on June 5 at Debaser Slussen in Stockholm, Sweden.
