Candlemass firar 25 på Roadburn och Debaser Medis!
Från Roadburn Festivals pressrelease:
"Candlemass To Celebrate 25 Years of Doom at Roadburn Festival 2011 -Epicus Doomicus Metallicus in its entirety with Johan Längquist on Vocals
Roadburn is thrilled to report that Swedish doom metal legends Candlemass have been confirmed for Roadburn Festival 2011. Originally scheduled to celebrate 25 years of doom at this year's Roadburn in April, Candlemass ended up stuck in Stockholm due to logistic complications arising from the volcanic eruption in Iceland.
Candlemass is now scheduled to play on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, Holland. Starting at 15.45, Candlemass will perform a very special 2-hour set, which will include "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus" in its entirety; featuring original vocalist Johan Längquist.
Leif Edling comments: "Candlemass is on for Roadburn 2011! I'm very happy! Not only for the chance to redeem ourselves, it is still our 25th anniversary for god's sake! A black piece of vinyl called EPICUS DOOMICUS METALLICUS came out almost exactly 25 years ago, and it will be a bonechilling event for us all... to play the whole shit live at Roadburn! Can't wait! The lights, the sound...t he projector show... everything will be absolute KILLER!! Pentagram and Candlemass at Roadburn next year. Jeez... what a show!!!"
Roadburn considers Candlemass one of the most important doom bands ever. They are on a very short list of doom greatness that includes Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Trouble and perhaps no one else. Their influence can be heard and felt throughout the current stoner and doom scene. It is a huge understatement to say that we’re looking forward to this special set with both Robert Lowe and Johan Längquist."
Samma koncept gäller även för bandets spelning på Debaser Medis 101218
