CANDLEMASS: SWEDEN ROCK CRUISE Footage Available

Fan-filmed video footage of Swedish doom legends CANDLEMASS performing at the Sweden Rock Cruise, which was held October 9-10, can be viewed below (clips uploaded by "blackopalrough").

This was the first metal cruise aboard the new ship M/S Silja Galaxy, which holds 2,800 passengers (800 more than the M/S Silja Festival which was used for previous cruises). The Galaxy, which was built in 2006, is 212 meters long and its 12 floors hold eight bars, five restaurants, a casino, swimming pools and a gaming room, among other things.

The ship departed from Stockholm, Sweden on October 9 at 19.15 (7:15 p.m.) and made stops at Mariehamn and Turku in Finland before arriving back in Stockholm 24 hours later.

CANDLEMASS have been confirmed for next year's Bloodstock Open Air festival, set to take place August 14-16, 2009 at Catton Hall in Derbyshire, England.

"Lucifer Rising", the new EP from CANDLEMASS, last month entered the Greek International Repertoire Chart at position No. 31.

"Lucifer Rising" includes two brand new tracks — "Lucifer Rising" and "The White God" — plus re-recorded version of "Demon's Gate" live in the studio. As a bonus, you get an audio recording of most of last year's gig from Athens, Greece: "At The Gallows End", "Solitude", "Emperor Of The Void", "Devil Seed", "Under The Oak", "Mirror Mirror", "Of Stars And Smoke", "Black Dwarf" and "Samarithan".

A new CANDLEMASS album will be recorded this fall for a spring 2009 release.

CANDLEMASS' last CD, "King of the Grey Islands", was released June 22, 2007 via Nuclear Blast Records.
