Their first time on the stage in 16 years.

Former Candlemass vocalist Messiah Marcolin and current Candlemass guitarist Mats "Mappe" Björkman joined Anvil on stage at Slaktkyrkan in Stockholm, Sweden for a performance of "Metal On Metal." This marks the first time Marcolin and Björkman shared a stage in 16 years, which Marcolin briefly discussed when asked by Blabbermouth.

"It's the first time in 16 years me and my old friend Mats Mappe Björkman from Candlemass [were] together on the same stage," said Marcolin. "We are both old Anvil fans since being teenagers. Since we are friends with Anvil they invited us up on stage and it was great fun!"

Björkman has largely been in Candlemass throughout their whole career save for a brief period between 1997 and 2002, while Marcolin fronted a handful of classic Candlemass records between 1986 and 1991, and then again between 2002 and 2006.
