The latest installment of the CANDLEMASS biography “Candlemass Chronicles” has just been released. In this fifth issue, focus is set on the self-titled album (Nuclear Blast Records, 2005) and the period from the band’s reunion in 2002 up until the final split of the classic lineup in 2006. Former vocalist Messiah Marcolin has been kind enough to go on the record for the first time about his final time and ultimate exit from CANDLEMASS. So in this issue and nowhere else, CANDLEMASS fans will get the entire story told from both sides. The people interviewed in this issue are Marcolin, lead guitar player Lars Johansson, rhythm guitar player Mats “Mappe” Björkman, bass player Leif Edling, drummer Janne Lindh, recording engineer and co-producer Pontus Norgren and album cover artist Tomas Arfert.
The issue can be ordered using PayPal via firstname.lastname@example.org. Price is 7 U.S. dollars. Postage is 2 dollars (within the U.S.) or 6 dollars (rest of the world).
