Best news, ever. Stoked to see one of their best singers coming back, and hopefully for good this time.
Quote:
Shocking news! EPICUS singer Johan Langquist is back after a 32 year hiatus replacing Mats Levén who’s been with the band since 2012. This is right in the middle of recording the new album. What happened?

“We wanted to find our way back to the roots of Candlemass, back to the soul and essence of the band. Johan Langquist is back and we hope this will give us some new energy and kickstart the heart of doom again. We don’t know if it will last 10 more years or even 5, but if it will give us just another year of having fun and playing the music that we love so much, it will be a blast! The circle is closed, Johan is back!"

More news will follow soon….

Holy shit yeeees. The guy has always been the voice of the band even though he only sang in the debut. Not even Messiah could match the awesomeness of Johan.

Sounds like a lame excuse "to go back to their roots" and not sure whether swapping a vocalist will do that, but surely the best singer they ever had.

This is good even if it just means that they'll do several more performances with Johan.

Well, I certainly didn't expect this. Not getting my hopes up too much since Candlemass (and the other bands Leif is involved in) have kind of fallen into a formula on their recent releases, but even a somewhat formulaic album with Langquist would still be quite cool.

"32 year hiatus" sounds legit.

Easily the best vocalist they ever had for their sound. Hesitant about the actual album quality but pretty cool to see this nonetheless.

Every Candlemass album is worth listening to, most are great - but not sure what to expect from this surprising news

So much for Psalms for the Dead being their last album.
Anyway, great news and I say this as someone who would have also loved an album with Mats Levén on vocals duty.

Anybody ever hear Johan do Nightfall-Tales of Creation songs? I know he's done a few one off gigs over the years. It would give the songs a different character with his lower register. Hope they will they play Samarithan on the tour, one of the greatest metal vocal songs of all.

Terrific news. I think that vocalists with his range often keep their stamina with age. Looking forward to seeing this live.
I love Mats Levéns voice, but not for Candlemass.
