CANDLEMASS – Release New Video For “Astorolus – The Great Octopus” Featuring Tony Iommi

CANDLEMASS have come full circle: their first singer Johan Langquist (who left the band after singing on the legendary 1986 debut Epicus Doomicus Metallicus) has returned!

They are set to release their 12th full length album “The Door To Doom” February 22nd via Napalm Records.

Now CANDLEMASS have dropped the second song from the album featuring legendary BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi. Watch the video for “Astorolus – The Great Octopus” below.

Leif Edling states:
“Here’s the video for ‘Astorolus’. Monsters and Gods come in different shapes. The eternal wheel of birth and death portrayed in a cool video and great song. Talking about gods, the master himself, Tony Iommi is playing the solo here (part 1+2 out of 3). Immense feeling, wonderful tome, so much presence! Just incredible! Hats off to him for helping us out. A dream coming true! Looking forward to play it live on the tour with Ghost. We’re rehearsing it right now. New stuff and the old classics. Can’t wait to go out on this tour. Johan is back singing, “The Door to Doom” is getting brilliant reviews, the band is in great form… Will be a blast!”
