Candlemass Premiere New Video For “Astorolus – The Great Octopus” Feat. Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath)

Candlemass have premiered a new video for their song “Astorolus – The Great Octopus.” This track features Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) and it will appear on the band’s new album “The Door To Doom“ (out February 22).

Bassist Leif Edling commented:

“Here’s the video for ‘Astorolus‘. Monsters and Gods come in different shapes. The eternal wheel of birth and death portrayed in a cool video and great song. Talking about gods, the master himself, Tony Iommi is playing the solo here (part 1+2 out of 3). Immense feeling, wonderful tome, so much presence!

Just incredible! Hats off to him for helping us out. A dream coming true! Looking forward to play it live on the tour with Ghost. We’re rehearsing it right now. New stuff and the old classics. Can’t wait to go out on this tour. Johan is back singing, “The Door to Doom” is getting brilliant reviews, the band is in great form… Will be a blast!”

Candlemass Release New Song “Astorolus – The Great Octopus” Feat. Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath)

Candlemass have released a new song titled “Astorolus – The Great Octopus.” This track features the legendary Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) and it will appear on the band’s new album “The Door To Doom“ (out February 22).

Leif Edling commented:

“We feel very honored that Tony Iommi said yes to play the solo on ‘Astorolus‘. The song was sent to the management and amazingly enough, the master agreed to let his mighty SG sing on the track! For me personally, this is a dream come true.

Tony Iommi has always been my hero and guiding light when it comes to heavy music, so to hear that he likes the song and also would like to play on it gave me chills down the spine! I’m still in shock! But kudos to him to be so cool to even listen to it. Hats off! Tony Iommi is and will always be God!”

Iommi added:

“Candlemass are a major force in Scandinavian heavy rock and have always acknowledged the influence we had on their music. They asked if I’d contribute to a track which sounded pretty good so I thought, ‘Why not?’”
