Candle Signs With Fighter Records/Xtreem Music

The first signing for newly created label Fighter Records, a division of Xtreem Music devoted solely to pure heavy metal, is Swedish epic metal act Candle.

Candle emerged in 2015 by guitarists Markus Janis & Christian Kanto (both from Corrosive Carcass), who shared the same enthusiasm for traditional style heavy metal. Soon after joined brothers Jorma Pihlajainen (drums) and Juhani Pihlajainen (bass) as well as vocalist Erik Nordkvist with a very personal voice that perfectly fits the context of the band.

Blending classic influences that range from Mercyful Fate with a dose of old U.S. Metal a la early Savatage and of course some NWOBHM a la early Judas Pries, Candle presents a haunting and epic kind of classic metal. The debut demo was recorded during summer/fall 2016 and will now see release through Fighter Records on February 15th. The band will continue work on the debut album, due to be recorded spring-summer of 2017.

The track list for "Demo 2016" is as follows:

2. Dancing Lights
3. Frozen With Fear
4. No Peace For My Soul More...
