Legendary doom metal icons CANDLEMASS recently broke ground into a new, modern venture related to the rise of online gaming.
The Swedish powerhouse announced the “House Of Doom“, a unique game with music written by band leader Leif Edling and performed by CANDLEMASS. The band has also been part of the development of the game that invites you into the world of extreme style heavy metal music.
Epic doom metal riffs from real instruments and their players, enhanced with doom-style graphics, come together in this classic online video slot. The results are a never-before-seen player experience.
“House Of Doom” is a five-reel video slot with 10 fixed pay-lines. It is a volatile game with a high payout. There are wilds, free(doom) spins and bonus scatter symbols (The Skull) and landing three skulls at the right moment triggers the Skulls Of Abyss bonus game, where hidden prizes can be won.
The music created for the game has now been amassed for an EP release from CANDLEMASS, “House Of Doom“, via Napalm Records on May 25th! Edling’s masterful creative touches are all over this music too, from monstrous melancholy riffs to simmering Hammond organ tapestries.

In addition to the regular EP, there will be 10” etched vinyl with an exclusive extended, long version of the song ‘The House Of Doom’. This 10” will be available to win beginning April 27th… and yes, I did say “win”.
The vinyl cannot be bought, it can only be obtained by playing the game HOUSE OF DOOM.
