Swedish doom masters Candlemass announce a new EP for end of March. ‘The Pendulum’, so the title of the release contains a tracklist that looks like this:
1. The Pendulum
2. Snakes Of Goliath
3. Sub Zero
5. Porcelain Skull
6. The Cold Room
Says band mastermind Leif Edling: “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 “The 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 “Door to Doom”. Enjoy!”
