Candlemass split - 2. udgave
Den svenske Doom legende har meddelt at de igen, på grund af interne problemer, har valgt at ligge Candlemass i graven igen. Følgende statement gives på bandets side:
"Despite the tremendous success of the reunion, everything hasn’t been perfect. Tiny cracks in the facade could be seen during the first round in the summer of 2002 because members of the band do not share the same vision of Candlemass, the gigs, an eventual new album, democracy etc, and last year it became clear that the differences were too large to overcome. A demo was recorded but the internal problems overshadowed the fun of playing. The gig at Klubben (Stockholm) Nov. 29 came to be the last and final one for Candlemass." "The band have tried to save the situation. There have been meetings and discussions, but unfortunately it hasn’t been possible for the five members to agree on how Candlemass could work in the future. The members would have loved to continue, but the chemistry is just not there anymore. The magic is gone..."
En bedre nyhed er dog, at der vil udkomme en tribute til Candlemass, hvor der vil være ofringer fra Opeth, The Hellacopters, The Haunted, Cathedral, Grand Magus, Krux, Satyricon og Timo Rautianinen & TrioNiskalaukaus.
