CANDLEMASS have a new EP titled “The Pendulum” slated for a March 27th release date via Napalm Records. The outing will feature several previously unreleased b-sides from the sessions for their latest full-length, “The Door To Doom.“ The band’s bassist (and mastermind) Leif Edling commented:
“‘The Pendulum‘ is about hard riffing, epic choruses and total delusion the fanatical way. It is in fact the last thing I wrote for ‘The Door To Doom‘ album but didn’t have the time to finish it. Here it is in its grand/mad luster with a great mix by Niklas Flyckt, and produced by Marcus Jidell. It is followed by 5 unreleased demos from the DTD sessions because the whole sha-bang was at first supposed to be a double effort but got trimmed down to a single album eventually.
I love the Pendulum track, album quality if you ask me, and songs like “Porcelain Skull” and “Snakes Of Goliath” are not bad either.
They just didn’t make it to the final thing. So I hope you like this EP that features the “missing” songs. The last pieces of the puzzle of the 1 year recording that became the album “The Door To Doom“. Enjoy”
The six-track EP will run as follows:
01 – “The Pendulum”
02 – “Snakes Of Goliath”
03 – “Sub Zero”
04 – “Aftershock”
05 – “Porcelain Skull”
06 – “The Cold Room”
