CANDLEMASS To Premiere New Song During Hometown Gig

Reformed Swedish doom legends CANDLEMASS will premiere a brand new song, called "Witches", during their performance at Klubben in Stockholm this weekend.

The track — which is described by songwriter/bassist Leif Edling as following "the true CANDLEMASS style, with both heavy and hard passages, lots of negative riffing, melody and slow doomy choruses" — is one of two new cuts that were demoed back in August prior to the Popkomm music convention in Köln, Germany, where CANDLEMASS held discussions with several labels about a possible new record deal for the band.

In addition to the new song, CANDLEMASS' show on Saturday will feature a number of relatively unusual additions to the group's set, including such CANDLEMASS classics as "A Cry From The Crypt", "Black Stone Wielder", "Into The Unfatomed Tower", and "Ancient Dreams", according to Edling.

The concert, which will also incude full-length performances from TROUBLE and FORCE OF EVIL (featuring members of MERCYFUL FATE and KING DIAMOND), will be filmed for a future DVD release, tentatively due early next year through Escapi.
