Candlemass are truly the manifestation of pure doom metal. Early 2019 saw the release of their latest album, "The Door To Doom," via Napalm Records - an offering that features an unforgettable pairing with legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi on the track “Astorolus - The Great Octopus”. The song has now been nominated for a 2020 Grammy Award in the “Best Metal Performance” category. This is the first nomination for the band and the first nomination for Napalm Records.

The Grammy Awards ceremony will be held on January 26 and broadcast on CBS.

Leif Edling of Candlemass says: “We are very proud and honoured to be nominated for a Grammy! Actually, a couple years ago, we said that the previous album would be the last one, yet here we are with a new record out plus Grammy talk. Wow! Proves that you should never give up. I must also take my hat off to Tony Iommi, who was kind enough to perform an amazing guitar solo on 'Astorolus - The Great Octopus'. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We're happy, thrilled, excited… and a bit shocked!”

Sebastian Münch, A&R Napalm Records, comments: "We are thrilled that Candlemass has been nominated for a Grammy Award for their track “Astorolus - The Great Octopus”, featuring the iconic Tony Iommi. This is the first nomination for them and for Napalm Records, so we couldn't be more excited. Congratulations, Candlemass!"

Other nominations for the award are:
Death Angel - Humanicide
I Prevail - Bow Down
Killswitch Engage - Unleashed
Tool - 7empest
