Candlemass is a Swedish doom metal band established in Stockholm in 1984 by bassist, songwriter and bandleader Leif Edling, and drummer Matz Ekström. The band had a defining influence on doom metal, and the genre itself is named after their debut album Epicus Doomicus Metallicus. After releasing five full-length albums and touring extensively throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, Candlemass disbanded in 1994, but reunited three years later. After breaking up again in 2002 Read more on Last.fm

Brand new Candlemass House of Doom shirt ships now. Also available in purple print on a baseball short.
“Receiving the Polar Music Prize is an incredible thing,” Lars Ulrich said in February when the award was announced. “It puts us in very distinguished company (including: Elton John, Sting, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, and Bruce Springsteen to name a few). It’s a great validation of everything that Metallica has done over the last 35 years. At the same time, we feel like we’re in our prime with a lot of good years ahead of us.” Members of Ghost and Candlemass will perform a Metallica song at the ceremony. Ian Paice and Roger Glover of Deep Purple will read the citation, while former Motörhead and current Scorpions drummer Mikkey Dee will perform a piece written for the occasion along with Refused frontman Dennis Lyxzen. Metallica will donate the $125,000 cash element of the prize to their All Within My Hands foundation.

I want to clarify why I’m not able to perform this Friday at Freak Valley.
A few weeks ago I was rushed to the hospital with severe infection on the balance center of the brain. There is no direct treatment, still it’s not really dangerous.
My balance is not back to 100% and my doctors said it was a bad idea to be on an airplane (+ playing a show) such a short time after the incident.
I really thought I would be able to do Freak Valley but the decision to cancel was taken just a couple of days ago.
I am happy and proud to have our friend and producer Marcus Jidell to fill in for me with such short notice. It will be a great show and I will see you soon out there!
