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


You can now hear former Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi guest on Candlemass‘ newly-released track “Astorolus – The Great Octopus“. That song is taken from Candlemass‘ new album “The Door To Doom“, which is headed for a February 22nd release. The band’s Leif Edling said of scoring a cameo from Iommi on the record:

“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!”

Iommi himself offered:

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?'”
