Swedish doom metal legends CANDLEMASS will release a special 30th-anniversary 3CD/2DVD set, “Behind The Wall Of Doom”, on April 29 via Peaceville. The set will include an expansive 92-page book by writer Per-Ola Nilsson.

The three-decade-long tale of CANDLEMASS is told from recollections of bandmembers past and present and chronicles the rise and domination of the pioneering Swedes (who have firmly stamped their mark on the metal world).

“Behind The Wall Of Doom” includes never-before-seen photos dating from the mid-1980s “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus” period to the present day. Also included are the CANDLEMASS demos, plus rare and previously unheard tracks from the band’s early rehearsals in 1985, alongside choice tracks from CANDLEMASS‘s early classic releases, as selected by Leif Edling and former vocalist Messiah Marcolin.

The set is completed with extensive DVD footage featuring several integral band performances over the decades, including the much-sought and revered Dynamo performance from 1988, plus other exclusive material. “Behind The Wall Of Doom” is presented in deluxe 12″ hardback book format.
