The EP was released through Napalm Records in June 2016. "Death Thy Lover" features a new lead vocalist in Mats Levén as Robert Lowe left Candlemass in 2012 after a six year stint with the band. Levén had shortly been a member of Candlemass in 2006 before Lowe joined, so he is not completely new in that respect.

Levén is of course known for his vocal contributions to artists like Krux and Abstract Algebra (both of which also featured Candlemass bassist Leif Edling in the lineup), Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Fatal Force, and Aeonsgate, just to name a few of the projects he has been involved in, so he is quite the prolific singer and definitely a worthy replacement for Lowe. Stylistically "Death Thy Lover" is exactly what you´d expect it to be if you´re already familiar with the last couple of releases by the band (new lead vocalist or not). It´s crushingly heavy yet relatively melodic doom metal (with occasional traditional heavy metal leanings), and feautures both powerful riffs and rhythms and catchy choruses.

The EP opens with three tracks featuring vocals and then closes with the instrumental "The Goose". All four tracks are of high compositional class and it´s hard not to be impressed by the high standards of Candlemass. Add to that high level musicianship and a powerful and clear sounding production, and "Death Thy Lover" comes off a great quality release. Featuring a total playing time of 25:28 minutes you also get a fair deal of quantity for your money, and a 4 star (80%) rating is therefore fully deserved.

Genre: traditional doom metal

The Swedish legends of doom metal are back, treating you to a nice little four-track EP in the form of "Death Thy Lover".

The EP opens with a mostly uptempo affair in the form of the title track, which does go into heavier territory in the bridge. While the verses and chorus are fine, my favorite part is the bridge which consists of a series of different sections, thus generating a sense of variation. The second track 'Sleeping Giant' is slower and more in the vein of traditional doom metal, revolving around an Iommi-esque riff and doomtastic chorus which is really the epitome of all that's great about old school doom metal. Unlike the title track which was more of a traditional heavy metal song with doom metal elements, this one is all out doom metal. 'Sinister N Sweet' continues in the same groove, offering some crushingly heavy riffage combined with a doom-ladden, yet melodic, bridge. Lastly, there is the instrumental 'The Goose', which is another heavy doom-ladden track - perhaps the heaviest and most atmospheric track on the EP.

Compared to most of their previous output, "Death Thy Lover" is not very epic. I think this owes to Mats Levén's more raspy and rock-oriented singing style. Levén is a very experienced vocalist who has performed with a host of bands since the 1990s, including Abstrakt Algebra, and who has had tenures with Candlemass before, so I totally understand why they went with him as a replacement for Robert Lowe. The guy is an accomplished rock singer, but it will some time getting used to his singing style on top of Candlemass' musical compositions - in particular when one is used to more operatically oriented singers like Robert Lowe and Messiah Marcolin or the legendary and very emotional singing style of Johan Längquist who sang on the legendary classic "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus". I have nothing against his singing style; it's just different. When you think about it, all the vocalists that Candlemass have had actually sound very different from each other anyway.

The four tracks on the EP are well written and well performed, and the production is pretty good without being polished. I like that the EP is structured such that it gets progressively heavier and doomier with each song.

Overall, "Death Thy Lover" is a fine and solid release by one of the most influential doom metal bands around. Fans of traditional doom metal are bound to enjoy it.

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.

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.

CANDLEMASS Psalms for the Dead

"Psalms for the Dead" is the 11th full-length studio album by Swedish doom metal act Candlemass. The album was released through Napalm Records in June 2012. 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.
