Candlemass – Epic Doom Metal from Sweden, Est. 1984
The first now classic doom metal album “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus” was released in 1986. Many years, albums and tours have passed since then.
The Door to Doom
Latest full album “The Door to Doom” released February 22, 2019 Napalm Records.
The Door To Doom unsurprisingly follows the plotline mastermind, songwriter and bass player Leif Edling established in the past years: epic world class doom metal that relies on slow mammoth riffing. With Johan Längqvist’s highly dramatic vocal style and the love for details, the band made this album to the next “Epicus”. This masterpiece is rounded off by a beautiful guest appearance by none other than Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi on ‘Astorolus – The Great Octopus.’
