Psalms for the Dead is the eleventh studio album by the Swedish doom metal band Candlemass, released on 8 June 2012.[2] Despite claiming that this is their final album, the members of the band have insisted that they will not break up,[3][4] and bassist Leif Edling has stated that he is open to recording new music with Candlemass again.[5] It is, however, the last Candlemass album recorded with singer Robert Lowe, who left the band just six days before its release.[6]
