Svart Records has set a June 14 release date for CANDLEMASS’ vinyl-only “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus – Live at Roadburn 2011″ album.
CANDLEMASS’ debut LP, “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus”, is a genre-defining classic if there ever was one — the starting point of modern epic doom metal, even.
In 2010 and 2011, CANDLEMASS invited the original “Epicus” vocalistJohan Längqvist back into the fold for a few select shows celebrating the album’s 25th birthday. This vinyl-only release captures the band performing “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus” album live at the sold-outRoadburn festival in Holland in April 2011. Mixed from a professional 32-track recording and mastered vinyl under the supervision of band founder/mainman Leif Edling, this is the ultimate live version of the classic.
