Dragon Fire: Candlemass, Nashville Pussy, Moonspell, and more

Dragon Fire is Slow Dragon Music’s brief news round-up, filled with chunks of fleshy goodness.


You may have noticed that Dragon Fire went a little quiet for the past few weeks, but don’t worry; there is method to the madness. We’re still testing and trying new approaches, but by and large, it seems to be tickling a few people’s fancy. This does mean we have a big backlog of ‘in case you missed it’ to add to the usual selection of musical morsels. Dig in!


Let’s kick things off with something new! Original Swedish doom troupe, Candlemass, have launched a pre-order for their upcoming House Of Doom EP. There are also special edition etched vinyl copies coming, but they can only be obtained via playing the House Of Doom game


Meanwhile, label mates, Dawn Of Disease, recently put out this little beauty. Leprous Thoughts is taken from their latest full-length, Ascension Gate, released last August.


For those who are more in the mood for something a little lighter and more trippy, Blackwater Holylight recently released their debut album. Seeping with sixties cool and nineties grunge, their eponymous introduction is a happy goth holiday from the norm.


Ever theatrical horror metallers, The Heretic Order, have released further details of their next album, including the artwork below and teaser video. Evil Rising is due out in June, via Massacre Records.

Before metal, there was still distortion, riffs, volume, and attitude! Brown Acid: The Sixth Trip is a compilation series of long lost, fuzzed out records from the 60s and 70s, the fourth installment going on sale today (20/04/18). Check out the lead track from Gold, to get your head in the space.


Lizzy Borden is set for a new album – the first in 11 years! My Midnight Things is released in June, but pre-orders are available from the official website where you can also watch the video for the title track.

It might have flown in under our radars, but Myrockout Promotions have hooked you up with a filthy Scottish exclusive. US “Dirty rock” outfit Nashville Pussy make an exclusive Scottish appearance at La Belle Angele, Edinburgh November 23rd. Support comes from Anaxor and Tantrum.
