GMR Music has set a November 22 release date for CANDLEMASS' "Essential Doom" CD, a posthumous collection of the group's best material plus their newly recorded and previously unreleased song "Witches". The album will come with a bonus DVD featuring video footage of the band's performance at the Rock Hard Festival in Germany in 2003.

"Witches" — one of two songs laid down during a quick demo session in August 2003 (the other being "Born In A Tank") — was "[written] in [the] true CANDLEMASS style," according to mainman Leif Edling, featuring "both heavy and hard passages, lots of negative riffing, melody and slow doomy choruses."
