Candlemass is a doom metal band formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1984. Candlemass arose from the earlier Nemesis outfit belonging to bassist Leif Edling and guitarist Christian Weberyd. Prior to the dissolvement of the group, Nemesis had released the highly praised 'Day Of Retribution' album in 1984. Debuting Candlemass on the tape trading circuit with the four song 'Witchcraft' demo in 1984, featuring a line-up of Edling, Weberyd and drummer Mats Ekström, and a second demo that November, the band promptly signed to the French Black Dragon label. Having added former A.T.C. guitarist Mats Björkman (a.k.a. 'Mappe') the band began recording what would become the 'Epicus, Doomicus, Metallicus' debut at Thunderload Studios with Ragne Wahlquist, frontman for Heavy Load, manning the desk.

CANDLEMASS Tales of Creation

Album · 1989 · Doom Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
arcane-beautiful
Doom metal is a secret love of mine. It's not a genre I am always having my nose in, but whenever I'm in the mood, a good bit of doom never does any harm. Especially, when a Candlemass CD is near.

The band's earlier career was met with some line up confusion. With multi changing vocalists, the band's most longest and frequent vocalist (and in my opinion the best) Messiah Marcolin's presence on this album sadly met a short end, due to this album being his last with the band (before his reunion with them for what I agree to be the bands strongest album).

Music wise the album is pretty much what you expect. Black Sabbath esque doom with a slower and more 80s feel to it, the sound does show a natural progression from their earlier sounds (with some slight surprises along the way too). Lyrically the album seems to be based around a concept. The basic story involves someone who dies and is able to go the afterlife. Creative in style and wording, the story isn't too in your face, but still is there for lyric buffs like myself.

The only real negative bone to pick with this album is the production. While musically the album is pretty good (nothing much you can really do with 80's style distortion), the vocals are probably the biggest problem. Messiah's voice is definitely one of the most unique and powerful in the Doom metal genre, so it is a bit annoying to hear his powerful warbles so low in the mix.

The real shining moment for on this album has to be the opening track “Dark Reflections.” A more upbeat moment for the band, the song has some pretty cooler riffs and a damn fine chorus.

One of the oddest moments on the album appears on the instrumental track “Into The Unfathomed Tower.” A neo classical style instrumental, almost done in the vein of Yngwie Malmsteen or Stratovarius, it is an interesting little interlude on the album, showing off the virtuostic talents on the musicians which isn't very much the focus usually of Candlemass' music.

A track which really shows off the vocals of Messiah has to be “The Edge Of Heaven.” Some pretty cool doomy riffs and some mad warbles gives this song an extra oomph.

One of the most interesting songs on the album is probably “Through The Infinite Halls Of Death.” Starting off with a slow doomy riff, the song soon turns into a faster and more aggressive song with some interesting twists and turns throughout.

The album's closing track “ A Tale Of Creation” is definitely one of the more epic moments on the album. With some poignant lyrics and a rather interesting arrangement, the song is a brilliant ending to this heavenly based concept album.

In conclusion, this album is pretty much classic doom metal at its best, done by one of the pioneering bands of the genre. While some of the production on this album can be rather weak, there are some blistering tunes on this album with the classic line up of the band being present. A definite must have for fans of doom.

CANDLEMASS Nightfall

Album · 1987 · Doom Metal

Primeval Scum
Doom metal doesn't get much better

Candlemass' sophomore effort Nightfall is very close to being a perfect album. Though there are only six real songs, every single one is high-quality cut of Grade-A Candlemass doom. Soaring operatic vocals, riffs of pure evil, and climatic solos galore on Nightfall. "The Well of Souls", "Samarithan" and "Bewitched" are unmatchable masterpieces of the genre, and the other three tracks aren't far behind. Though this album maintains a similar sound throughout, it does not get repetitive because the songs all have their own unique lyrical story (not to mention destructive riffs) and are mixed in with some gloomy instrumental interludes throughout. Messiah Mercolin's vocals are spot on as usual and guide Nightfall to a 1st place finish slightly ahead of Epicus Doomicus Metallicus for Best Candlemass Album. This is an essential of doom metal. If you have any interest in the genre at all, you need to listen to this seminal release.

In several interviews leading up to the release of the album, members of the band have stated that "Psalms for the Dead" will be the last Candlemass release but that they won´t split up. I guess that means that they will occasionally tour with the material they have already recorded. The album features the same lineup who recorded the last two albums, but lead vocalist Robert Lowe was fired from the band just around the time of the album´s release.

A decision to stop recording new material while you are still on top of your game, is always a hard decision to make. But it´s sometimes the most wise one if you count integrity and how you are gonna be remembered in the future as important career goals. Considering the generally high quality of the material on "Psalms for the Dead", it might just be a little too soon to stop for Candlemass though.

The music on "Psalms for the Dead" is traditional doom metal with an epic edge and it´s not surprisingly the unmistakable sound of Candlemass. The riffs and the rhythms are brick heavy yet feature enough groove to drive the music forward in an energetic fashion, the guitar leads are melodic, and the vocals by Robert Lowe are powerful and skillfully executed. There are excursions into faster (well...relatively) paced traditional heavy metal territory too like it´s the case on "Dancing in the Temple (Of the Mad Queen Bee)" but the music is generally doomy, slow, or mid paced. The band have opted to include quite a bit of organ in their music this time around and that might prove to be an aquired taste for some. It´s adds an organic 70s atmosphere to the album, and it also makes the album stand out a bit from the rest of the band´s discography.

The sound production is clear and powerful and suits the music well. Paired with the high standard musicianship and the strong songwriting, that makes for one hell of a great doom metal release and "Psalms for the Dead" fully deserves a 4 star (80%) rating.

Apparently, this is and isn't Candlemass' swansong: whilst they've not ruled out further live activity, apparently they're not going to make any more studio albums after this. This isn't a unique situation in metal: Bolt Thrower made a very respectable choice to refrain from producing new studio albums unless and until they felt they had a set of new material of comparable quality to their best work. The difference is that Bolt Thrower ended on a high, producing Those Once Loyal - an album which, despite feeling a little formulaic at points, was at least true to the Bolt Thrower spirit and was a decent epilogue to their studio career.

The same cannot be said for Psalms For the Dead. The thing about the best Candlemass albums was that, despite playing in (and arguably helping to define) the traditional doom metal subgenre, their material never felt generic. There was never the impression that the band were following someone else's formula - Epicus Doomicus Metallicus or Nightfall might have owed a lot to Black Sabbath, but there was never the sense that Sabbath - or Saint Vitus, or Sleep, or anyone else for that matter - could have made those albums. They had their own unique Candlemass-y personality which set them apart.

Sadly, this isn't the case here. To be blunt, the songwriting and performances here are outright generic. Rob Lowe certainly throws his weight into the vocals but he doesn't seem to believe in them; compare to the perfect note of despair he hits on the opening track to King of the Grey Islands, for instance. Musically, this could really be any latter-day Sabbath revival band chugging away. The unique atmosphere and personality in evidence both in the classic early Candlemass albums and in their recent efforts has entirely departed, and what is left is competent but repetitive generic supermarket brand doom metal. In short, not the way legends like Candlemass should have taken their final bow.

Death Magic Doom mixes up the grim atmosphere and Rob Lowe vocals of King of the Grey Islands with the uncharacteristically bouncy and jubilant tone of the band's self-titled album, creating an album with some monstrously chunky riffs but at the same time feels like it lacks focus compared to earlier efforts by the band. I'm inclined to agree with Time Signature that the album almost seems even more Sabbath-influenced than ever before, with If I Ever Die in particular resembling Tony Iommi's work with Sabbath. On the whole, the release of any new Candlemass album is cause for doom metal fans to sit up and take notice and this is no different.
