Checkout some studio footage of them recording the LP here.
Avatarium features Candlemass bass player and songwriter Leif Edling who said about the new record – “I think we have created something unique this time with Avatarium. The songs are more written to be just songs and there are some really nice moments on the record that I personally love… the straightforward title track, the beautiful January Sea, the riff in Ghostlight and the groove in Run Killer Run. The organ and the Rhodes piano are ridiculously loud in the mix at times; even Dr. Carl agrees, but i think it gives even more edge to the songs! I hope people will dig The Girl With The Raven Mask as much as I do myself, and if they don’t, it’s their problem. A band can’t deliver more than we have done here, so it is an album close to perfection! When an album is perfect… shoot me!”
