4/5 ·
Warthur
Candlemass' Tales of Creation is a marked improvement over the preceding Ancient Dreams; the riffs have the power and majesty of Nightfall once again, the concept (such as it is) gives the album more focus, and the band also broaden their sound a little with a few experiments with faster-paced metal forms as well as their classic, slow doom metal sound. (In particular, the instrumental Into the Unfathomed Tower sees the band playing faster than ever before.) I don't return to this one quite as often as I do the debut or Nightfall, but it's still a worthy end to Messiah's first stint in the band.
