Staff review by
1987, Johan Langquist had already left Candlemass and the band was searching for a new singer. A guy named Messiah Marcolin, impressed by Candlemass, called Leif Edling and while his stepmother was holding the phone he was playing on the guitar and at the same time singing Candlemass' songs. Edling enchanted by the voice of this mysterious guy with the even more mysterious name invited MArcolin to perform with them in order to check him. This is what the rumours say about how the nocturnal monk with the heavenly voice became part of Candlemass, the rest is history.

This album is yet another classic one from Candlemass. The music is more astounding, the atmosphere is more melancholic, and i don't think anyone could forget those powerful, haunting lines 'You are Bewi-i-tched'. 'Bewitched' introduced me to the band, so it is a good place to start.

I used to be completely sure that Messiah (or any Candlemass vocalist) can never be as good as Langquist. After hearing Messiah's huge performance on "Gallows End" I'm not that sure anymore, epic stuff.

This could have been on the same level of Epicus Doomicus Metallicus if they had not included the interludes and The Well Of Souls.
I'm derp.
