Mats Levén (ex-Candlemass) has signed a new deal with Napalm Records for his new solo project Skyblood. His new album will be released later this year and it is expected to feature the following guests: Martin “Axe” Axenrot (Bloodbath, Opeth, etc.), Nalley Påhlsson (Treat, Therion), Snowy Shaw (ex-King Diamond) and Petter Karlsson (ex-Therion, etc.).
“A few days after the split with CANDLEMASS in September 2018, I was contacted by Napalm Records regarding my solo material. The timing was perfect, and today I’m thrilled to announce our partnership and the release of SKYBLOOD in the fall of 2019! SKYBLOOD is who I am and where I’m at after 30 years in this weird business. A special thanks to Sebastian Münch at Napalm. Let’s do this!”
Sebastian Münch, A&R at Napalm Records, added:
“With absolute pleasure and honor, Napalm Records would like to announce the signing of Mats Levén’s SKYBLOOD. Over the years, Mats’s distinguished vocal works have created various masterpieces; in particular for CANDLEMASS, KRUX and THERION! The new songs from the SKYBLOOD debut sound amazing and we are looking forward to a very successful album release. Mats, welcome to the Napalm family!”
