Watch “When Death Sighs” below.
“The kings of doom are back and in a big way!
Sweet Evil Sun is a black gem of the genre: powerful production, pounding drums, rough guitar sound and well felt vocal harmonies.
9 solid songs plus an outro to remind us that CANDLEMASS are the Black Sabbath of my generation, they are the ones who carry this heavy legacy and they do it with epic glory.”
(Vorph – SAMAEL founder, singer & guitarist)
Watch the previously released “Scandinavian Gods” and “Sweet Evil Sun” below.
The artwork for Sweet Evil Sun was illustrated by the skilled hand of Erik Rovanperä, the architect behind CANDLEMASS’ visual style since Psalms for the Dead (2012)

Leif Edling on the new album: “Sweet Evil Sun is about hope, striving, adoration and failure. It’s about all the personal battles that you have, but also the never-ending decay of humanity.
The record took over a year to make and there’s not a bad track on it! We had a fantastic time recording it and are really looking forward to the release. It’s Doom, It’s Metal! It is the essence of CANDLEMASS put into one album!”
