Candlemass bassist Leif Edling released the following statement in regards to the band's announcement of plans to perform its iconic album "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus" in its entirety at the Roadburn 2011 Festival:

"Candlemass is on for Roadburn 2011! I'm very happy! Not only for the chance to redeem ourselves, it is still our 25th anniversary, for god's sake!

"A black piece of vinyl called 'Epicus Doomicus Metallicus' came out almost exactly 25 years ago, and it will be a bonechilling event for us all...to play the whole shit live at Roadburn! Can't wait! The lights, the sound...the projector show...everything will be absolute KILLER!! Pentagram and Candlemass at Roadburn next year. Jeez...what a show!!!"

Candlemass is scheduled to play on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland. The band will perform a tour hour set, including the full performance of "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus."
