CANDLE MACE have announced a new album!
Title Sweet bad sunSwedish doom metal band veteran’s next album follows 2019’s The gate of fateand is slated for release in November this year, via Napalm discs.
Registered at NOX Studio in Stockholm, Sweden, the next album intends to impressively show that after almost forty years in the game, the creativity of these Swedish doom bands knows no bounds. Speaking of the upcoming album, bassist Leif Edling said, “Sweet bad sun talks about hope, effort, adoration and failure. It’s about all the personal battles you have, but also about the endless decay of humanity. The record took over a year to make and there’s not a bad track on it! We had a fantastic time recording it and are really looking forward to the release. It’s doom, it’s metal! It is the essence of CANDLE MACE put in an album!
Along with the new album announcement, the group released a new music video for a new song taken from the upcoming album; Norse gods.
Speaking of the new song, Edling said, “Norse gods is KILLER meets QUEEN and JUDAS PRIEST! It’s about legacy and future and how sometimes it’s absolutely necessary to leave or at least doubt your old gods. It’s about the difficulty in all of this, and the irony that you find yourself being drawn to them over and over again, into those dark circles and oblivion of the past. Where do we want to be? What will we believe? Do we need them to build a better future?
