Swedish doom metal legends CANDLEMASS are back with an online game and a brand new soundtrack called "House Of Doom".
According to the game's official web site, "House Of Doom" is a unique game with music written by CANDLEMASS leader Leif Edling and performed by CANDLEMASS. The band has also been part of the development of the game that invites you into the world of extreme style heavy metal music, where both music and lyrics intend to evoke a sense of despair, dread and, impending doom.
Epic doom metal riffs from real instruments and doom-style graphics come together in this classic online video slot and result in a never-before-seen player experience.
"House Of Doom" is a five-reel video slot with 10 fixed paylines. It is a volatile game with a high payout. There are wilds, free(doom)spins and bonus scatter symbols (the Skull). Landing three skulls at the right moment triggers the Skulls Of Abyss bonus game, where hidden prizes can be won…
The "House Of Doom" soundtrack was written by Edling, produced by Marcus Jidell, mixed by David Castillo and mastered by Maor Appelbaum.
Edling said last fall that he was working on a new CANDLEMASS song that was "a part of something bigger, something really cool that will take the band on another adventure." He described the process as "very exciting and a new challenge for me as a songwriter."
CANDLEMASS's latest release, "Death Thy Lover", came out in 2016 as CANDLEMASS's special 30th-anniversary EP. The four-track effort featured singer Mats Levén, who joined CANDLEMASS in 2012 following the departure of Robert Lowe.
