CANDLEMASS to play “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus” at METALITALIA.COM FEST


unnamed (20)

The Metalitalia.com Festival team and all their patrons are looking forward to a very special CANDLEMASS set!

CANDLEMASS have reunited with singer Johan Langquist, who performed on the band’s 1986 debut album “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus”Johan is back after a 32 year hiatus replacing Mats Levén who’s been with the band since 2012.

The band stated: “We wanted to find our way back to the roots of Candlemass, back to the soul and essence of the band. Johan Langquist is back and we hope this will give us some new energy and kickstart the heart of doom again. We don’t know if it will last 10 more years or even 5, but if it will give us just another year of having fun and playing the music that we love so much, it will be a blast! The circle is closed, Johan is back!”.

New footage of the band rehearsing the classic track “Solitude” can be found HERE.

Says the band: “For the upcoming Candlemass shows at Southern Discomfort (September 8th), Milano (September 16th), Switzerland (September 23rd) and Bukarest (October 20th), Johan Langquist will take care of the vocal duties. The material will of course lean more towards Epicus Doomicus Metallicus + some immortal classics from the C-mass back catalogue. On the bass front Per Wiberg will play these shows instead of Leif, but Mr. Edling will be back in the band next year and deliver doom and thunder on live stages near and far away.”

Metalitalia.comEagle Booking Live Promotion and Vertigo are proud to finally present you the program for this year’s Metalitalia.com Festival.

Once again the main event will take place over two days: on Saturday, September 15 and Sunday, September 16. For the first time in our history a warm-up party has also been scheduled. The pre-festival show will take place on Friday, September 14!

Metalitalia.com Festival continues to strive forward bringing the biggest bands in the world to the Live Club in Trezzo sull’Adda (Milan) while giving emerging bands the chance to support such bands and progress forward keeping the scene thriving!

A fine collection of classic/power metal, epic, doom, black metal and the likes and even a special grind/hardcore warm-up gig has been put together with the greatest of care for your enjoyment, and aural punishment if you will. We believe we managed to top last year’s edition once again. Have a look at what we have in store for you here:
