CANDLEMASS - LEIF EDLING Starts New Project2013-05-11
Doom metallers Candlemass' bassist and main songwriter Leif Edling is currently recording material a full-length album with his new project Avatarium.
He released the following statement to Blabbermouth about it: "I have been writing songs for some time now and together with the guitar player Marcus Jidell (Royal Hunt, Evergrey), I have been recording some demos during the winter that we are shopping now."
"The Avatarium songs are heavy, dark and poetic and we have interest from several labels around the world. Nothing is signed just yet, so we carry on with the recording of the album. Last week drummer Lasse Sköld (Tiamat) recorded his drums in a Stockholm studio. Soon we'll do the guitars and the bass, before singer Jennie-Ann Smith adds her vocals."
