Candlemass Shares New Video For “Astorolus – The Great Octopus” ft. Tony Iommi

As we previously reported Doom masters Candlemass is back with a new album, complete with original singer Johan Langquist on vocals. They already shared the first single ‘Astorolus – The Great Octopus’ featuring Metal legend Tony Iommi. Now you can watch the music video for the track below!

Leif Edling states:

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!”

Tony Iommi on his appearance:

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’”.
