Man this is TOO catchy, and heavy to the Sludge/hardcore point in some parts. Amazing the difference in the change of guitarist, this album sounded very weird after listening to the early works.

I liked. Beat the boring Chapter VI imo.

member of the true crusade against old school heavy metal, early 80s thrash, NWOBHM, traditional doom, first and second wave black metal, old school death metal, US power metal, 70s prog rock and atmospheric doomsludgestoner. o/

I remember listening to this album many years ago, when I was very young, and I didn't like it at all. Probably because it doesn't sound much like Candlemass. Now, after listening to it again after so many years, I can firmly say that I like it. It still doesn't sound like Candlemass (for obvious reasons), but I've become more mature and open-minded since then, I guess.
Everyone listening to this record should know that it initially was supposed to be the second Abstrakt Algebra album and only dire financial situation forced Leif Edling to re-record it and release it under the name of Candlemass.

Lost To Apathy
This album is excellent, it saddens me people discriminate it. Dustflow is unbelievable.

Bad English
Maybe worst from this band, ppl bitch band over wrote them selves, but any overwritten albums are good if they sounds good, this is also boring. We all candlemass lovers how much we listen this, most we do classics right? new sounds, well why not go Sentenced road?
I heard a bit industrial things here
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

Bit suprised/disappointed with the rating, to be honest. Still like Chapter VI more, though, but I wouldn't put this behind it by much.
