Having just dropped the title track from their upcoming EP, The Pendulum, Swedish doom metal legends Candlemass are already giving us the second single and a video to boot! The crushing riff fest that is “Porcelain Skull” can be heard below.

Band mastermind Leif Edling has this to say about the track and video:

“I think the video really captures the schizophrenic lyrics to the ‘Porcelain Skull’ song. It is about the eternal battle with our dark selves. Avatarium did a fine version of it on their latest album, but this one is rawer and harder, hits you right in the face!”

The Pendulum is due for release March 27 via Napalm Records; both the title track and pre-orders can be found here.
