Hear Tony Iommi Guest On the New Candlemass Song – “Astorolus – The Great Octopus”

The buzz around the new Candlemass album is legit! One reason is the appearance than none other than the god of riffs himself, Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath! Listen to ‘Astorolus – The Great Octopus’ right now and get ready to lose your mind! The track comes off of The Door To Doom, due on February 22, 2019, via Napalm Records.

Iommi commented

“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?'”

Added founder Leif Edling: “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!”
