Leif Edling, bassist and songwriter behind legendary Swedish doom band Candlemass, has started a new solo project called The Doomsday Kingdom. The band released a demo EP earlier this year in very limited quantities. The 12″ vinyl copies sold out immediately. Fortunately, The Doomsday Kingdom has signed to German label Nuclear Blast and the EP will see it’s official release on November 25th, with a full-length album tentatively due for March 2017. The second track from the EP is called “The Sceptre”.
The Doomsday Kingdom play their very first gig at the Roadburn Festival next spring.
