Candlemass Post “House of Doom” Video; New EP out May 25

candlemass

I’ll be honest with you, I don’t care if the new Candlemass is inspired by Parcheesi. It’s new Candlemass. That’s what matters. The Swedish legends of doom metal led by bassist Leif Edling present four new songs on their upcoming House of Doom EP, which takes its name from, yeah, a video game, and will be released by Napalm on May 25 ahead of a reported new full-length due this autumn. More new Candlemass? Mark it a win. Some things just make the universe a better place.

They’ve got a lyric video up for the House of Doom title-track that you can see at the bottom of this post, and yes, it kicks ass. Doom doesn’t get much more doom than Candlemass. They pretty much built this ‘House.’

CANDLEMASS TO RELEASE NEW EP ‘HOUSE OF DOOM’ ON MAY 25th!

It only takes a few short bars of the title track “House Of Doom” to feel that familiar sensation again: yes, Leif Edling aka the undisputed king of minor key songwriting has returned. With him, he brings frenzied riffing, melancholy made sound and warm Hammond organ tapestries that form the pillars of every CANDLEMASS classic!

Mats Levén on the EP:

“We in Candlemass are proud to present 4 new songs to the world on the new EP ‘House of Doom’! The title track is inspired by the House of Doom game from Hyperfrost. We’re also very happy that our label Napalm Records are with us all the way – 2018 will be a big year for Candlemass!”

The Swedish pioneers of doom managed once again to distill the essence of epic doom metal – and at the same time they make waiting for the next long player (to be released in fall 2018) even harder…

  1. […] The game itself is a five-reel slot with 10 fixed pay-lines, with themes and imagery congruent with the band and the ideas that doom metal conjures up. In keeping with the pace of the music, the gameplay is fast and the frenetic excitement that doom metal brings is present. As Betway shows, slots based on real people, especially musicians, are not a new phenomenon. Jimi Hendrix’s likeness was used for a slot game to evoke the peace and love of the hippy movement, while Motorhead and Guns N Roses have both leant their sounds and likeness to variations of the traditional slot game. Even Kiss have made the transition into the gaming world with their recognizable make-up and unique sound providing games developers ample material. Choosing a well-known artist as a front for the established gameplay allows new fans to experience the game while letting them engage with their favorite stars in a different arena. The game, soundtrack, and video will satiate fans of the longstanding rockers. […]
