Candlemass - "The Pendulum" (lyric video)

Το βίντεο των Candlemass για το "The Pendulum" από το ομότιτλο ep
Centuries of sleep
The spear of God is still
waiting for your love and your will

The pendulum divine
weapon of cosmic kind
A hammer that will hit you from behind

Oh, the pendulum it turns...
It twists and it churns - it burns!
Oh the pendulum will fly
It is black, it is white, it is blind
Oh, the pendulum is mine!

The balance that you are
omen from the stars
the secrets that you hold will be told

Continents, they sink
the crowning of a king
The pendulum's the nave of everything

Oh, the pendulum it turns...
It twists and it churns - it burns!
Oh the pendulum will fly
It is black, it is white, it is blind
Oh, the pendulum is mine!

Asylum, sweet home
chained and alone
but soon the walls will crack
stone by stone

Fever in my brain
Vengeance from the void
I give you the power to destroy

Oh, the pendulum it turns...
It twists and it churns - it burns!
Oh the pendulum will fly
It is black, it is white, it is blind
Oh, the pendulum will swing
Free from all sin, sing...
Oh, the pendulum is true
It moves and grooves, soothes
Oh, the pendulum's for fools!


EP έξι τραγουδιών είναι η δισκογραφική πρόταση των Candlemass για το 2020. Φέρει τον τίτλο "The Pendulum", αναμένεται στα τέλη του Μάρτη και περιλαμβάνει το ομότιτλο τραγούδι συν πέντε demo εκτελέσεις μουσικών κομματιών, τα οποία συνέθεσε η μπάντα για τον δίσκο "The Door to Doom" (που κυκλοφόρησε πέρυσι), αλλά δεν συμπεριλήφθηκαν τελικά στο album...

Candlemass: «"The Pendulum" is about hard riffing, epic choruses and total delusion the fanatical way. It is in fact the last thing I wrote for "The Door to Doom" album but didn't have the time to finish it.

Here it is in its grand/mad luster with a great mix by Niklas Flyckt, and produced by Marcus Jidell. It is followed by 5 unreleased demos from the DTD sessions because the whole sha-bang was at first supposed to be a double effort but got trimmed down to a single album eventually.

I love the Pendulum track, album quality if you ask me, and songs like "The Porcelain Skull" and "Snakes of Goliath" are not bad either. They just didn't make it to the final thing. So I hope you like this EP that features the "missing" songs. The last pieces of the puzzle of the 1 year recording that became the album "The Door to Doom". Enjoy:-)»

Δελτίο τύπου: «"The Pendulum" - the masterful new EP by the undisputed kings of epic doom, staving off your hunger for more until Candlemass' next full-length hits! Grammy-nominated classic doom icons Candlemass don't even need to drop a full-length for every release to prove they belong at the top of an entire genre and beyond.

Fully comprised of never-before-heard, unused tracks cut from the The Door To Doom recording sessions, the band’s masterful new EP, The Pendulum, perfectly showcases that these timeless Swedish pioneers are the undisputed kings of epic doom.

The fully-mastered EP opener/title track “The Pendulum” charges in with a melodic, head-swinging, thrashy rush - setting the stage for the raw, unfiltered steamrolling demo cut, "Porcelain Skull”, encapsulating the listener in unadulterated doom heaviness.

The six track EP leads the listener through a maze of frenzied riffing, accented by Leif Edling's distinctive, penetrating vocals and the unique, melancholy sound that has proven Candlemass as a heavy metal staple. The Pendulum is a MUST-HAVE for every classic doom record collection, and will stave off the hunger for more until the band's next full-length hits.»

  1. Βγάζουμε ένα καινούριο κομμάτι κοπανάμε και πέντε που περίσσεψαν από το προηγούμενο άλμπουμ, όχι κανονικές ηχογραφήσεις αλλά ντέμο και κυκλοφορούμε δίσκο. Αγαπάμε Candlemass αλλά θα έπρεπε να το έχουν κλείσει το μαγαζί εδώ και χρόνια.
