Legendary Swedish doomsters CANDLEMASS have posted the following message on their official web site:
"In these days of stress and X-mas overload to celebrate the commersial interests, CANDLEMASS will instead focus on the hunt for a new singer. The band will try some interesting people over the weekends and hopefully a new guy can be found and introduced in January.
"CANDLEMASS sincerely thank each and every one of you cool singers that applied. They have heard many great voices!
"The auditions will take place in Stockholm, with Scandinavians singers mainly.
"Also, watch this space closely....there will be a CANDLEMASS 20-years-as-a-band celebration in Stockholm soon. The band will play with some ultra cool guests on an evening that won't be forgotten for a long time!! If you miss that, you'll be a sorry fuck for the rest of your life!!"
CANDLEMASS announced on Oct. 23 that vocalist Messiah Marcolin was out of the band "for good."
