Candlemass Posts New Lyric Video, “House Of Doom” Online

The Swedish pioneers of timeless slowness, Candlemass, are back in top form, distilling the essence of epic doom metal!

It only takes a few short bars of the title track “House Of Doom” to feel that familiar sensation again: yes, Leif Edling aka the undisputed king of minor key songwriting has returned. With him, he brings frenzied riffing, melancholy made sound and warm Hammond organ tapestries that form the pillars of every Candlemass classic! You can check out the video for the title track below.

Mats Levén on the EP:

“We in Candlemass are proud to present 4 new songs to the world on thenew EP ’House of Doom’! The title track is inspired by the House of Doom game from Hyperfrost. We’re also very happy that our label Napalm Records are with us all the way – 2018 will be a big year for Candlemass!”

The Swedish pioneers of doom managed once again to distill the essence of epic doom metal – and at the same time they make waiting for the next long player (to be released in fall 2018) even harder…

Alien Weaponry Announces Debut Album, “Tu”

Three teenagers, known as ALIEN WEAPONRY, from a tiny town in New Zealand have managed to capture imaginations with their unique thrash metal sound and commanding live performances. This in itself is surprising, but perhaps the most unexpected element of all in their success is that many of the band’s songs are delivered in a language that is unknown to international audiences – New Zealand’s native language, Te Reo Maori.

Now, ALIEN WEAPONRY are ready to release their furious debut album “Tu” on the world. Short for “Tumatauenga,” the Maori god of war, Tu also means to stand strong and proud, and to stand for something. The notion is reflected in the album artwork, which includes the tradtional moko kanohi (facial tattoos) of the Maori warrior.

Napalm Records released the single and video for the song “Holding My Breath” – the first single so far to be sung entirely in English. The song was written by Lewis (Vocals/Guitar). In it, he talks about the anxiety of being judged and socially ostracized by peers to the point of being unable to function.

“It’s about something that actually happened to me. I felt so bad that I literally stayed in my room and couldn’t bring myself to leave the house or talk to anyone,” he says. “I wrote the song at that time, and it was one of the things that helped me work through it, so I hope it will resonate with other people going through similar things.”

One of the people it has already resonated with is actress Rose van Wylich, featured in the video; who experienced similar feelings of isolation as a teenager.

“Holding My Breath” is the first single put out by Napalm Records in advance of ALIEN WEAPONRY’s debut album “Tu” being released on June 1st. A month later, the band will head to Europe for a 3-month tour which includes the world’s biggest metal festival, Wacken Open Air.
You can preorder “Tu” here.

Here is the track listing for “Tu”:

1. Whaikorero
2. Ru Ana Te Whenua
3. Holding My Breath
4. Raupatu
5. Kai Tangata
6. Rage – It Takes Over Again
7. The Things That You Know (Bonus Track)
8. Whispers
9. PC Bro
10. Urutaa
11. Nobody Here
12. Te Ara
13. Hypocrite (Bonus Track)
