Doom Metal Kings CANDLEMASS Unveil Third Single + Lyric Video for “When Death Sighs”
Legendary classic doom icons CANDLEMASS recently announced the release of their new album, Sweet Evil Sun, to finally see the light of day this Friday, November 18, via Napalm Records. With this top-notch offering, recorded at NOX studio in Stockholm, the Swedish force centered around Leif Edling continue their unmatched legacy, following the inimitable The Door to Doom (2019) and proving once more that they reign as one of the heaviest metal bands on earth, bringing epic doom to the world of metal.
After releasing the hammering first single, “Scandinavian Gods” and the heavy doom successor track “Sweet Evil Sun”, it’s time to unveil the next appetizer “When Death Sighs”! Lethargic riffs announcing the ominous arrival of death, while Jennie-Ann Smith, mesmerizing vocalist of Edling's brainchild Avatarium, accents the song’s shimmering, blood-freezing chorus lines. With no exit out of the situation, the haunted atmosphere is supported by an amazing guitar solo closing the dark chapter of the death’s breath, underlined by an eerie lyric video to capture this dark feeling visually.
