Swedish epic doom masters have announced the album title and unveiled the artwork to the band's forthcoming and final LP. The album will be entitled "Psalms for the Dead" and will be released in June 2012 through Napalm Records. The band will issue a 7" single with two album tracks ("Dancing In The Temple Of The Mad Queen Bee" and "The Killing Of The Sun") in advance of the full length release. Pre-orders for the single can be made at this location. The artwork for the single and full length can be viewed below.

Mastermind and bassist Leif Edling had the following comments on the new album:

This record represents everything that is Candlemass. It is big, fat, epic and heavy, and it’s also metal as fuck! We couldn’t have done a better album! It’s our last one and we put just all we had into it. 'Psalms For The Dead' is an album about the presence and absence of time, false prophets and inner demons....hymns, regret and farewell. Let there be doom!
