Tony Iommi and Candlemass?
The first recording from Tony Iommi since Black Sabbath played their final show nearly two years ago. It was previously announced that the legendary guitarist had made a contribution to the new Candlemass record, The Door to Doom, and now you can hear what he laid down on the new track “Astorolus – The Great Octopus.”
The single is a bludgeoning dose of bleeding doom and effectively praises Iommi’s riffing ethos, something Candlemass have done remarkably well over the last 30-plus years. If you have little patience, an essential virtue for listening to doom metal, you can jump to the three-minute mark in the player below to hear Iommi’s solo.
