Candlemass Premiere “Astorolus – The Great Octopus” Featuring Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi
Next month, Candlemass will release The Door to Doom, their first mass of candles with vocalist Johan Längquist in 33 years. Are Candlemass fans excited? I have no idea, I don’t know any Candlemass fans. But I do know that the new single from the album, “Astrolous — The Great Octopus,” features Black Sabbath guitarist and Ozzy Osbourne buzzkill Tony Iommi, and is a better Black Sabbath song than anything that was on 13. I also know that this is, by far, the best metal song about an octopus ever released in 2019 so far. So that’s a couple of things I know.
Listen to “Astrolous — The Great Octopus” below. The Door to Doom comes out on February 22nd via Napalm Records; pre-order here.
