Via Napalm Records:
Candlemass will release their final album "Psalms for the Dead" in June. A limited 12” vinyl single including 2 album tracks will be released in advance and will show that the upcoming longplayer is the present and future of doom metal!
“This record represents everything that is CANDLEMASS. It is big, fat, epic and heavy, and it’s also metal as fuck! We couldn’t have done a better album! It’s our last one and we put just all we had into it. ‘Psalms for the Dead’ is an album about the presence and absence of time, false prophets and inner demons.... hymns, regret and farewell. Let there be doom!” / Leif Edling, March 2012
So that’s it; the end of an era-- June 2012. We’ll bring you more deets as they become available.
