Candlemass, the founders of epic doom metal.
Their First four albums Epicus Doomicus Metallicus, Nightfall, Ancient Dreams, Tales of Creation are flawless, and its very difficult to choose the best from these bests.

So defn there must be many Candlemass and epic doom metal fans around with views for this Epic band.

(Arguing If Candlemass was the first doom metal band or weather Epicus Doomicus Metallicus was the first doom metal album is what most of the times is discussed and i would recommend to keep away frm these "Arguable" issues)

Views About the band, albums and Fav tracks, news etc Post On....

So far I've only heard their song Bewitched. The music video is so cheesy, but in that awesome fucking way. I love it. I should probably check out more of these guys.

their absolute best and imho one of the best metal albums ever released is Epicus Doomicus Metallicus.. be sure to check it out.

I listened to what I guess is popularly considered their best work, 'Epicus Doomicus Metallicus', and it just didn't do it for me. From the beginning I disliked the singer and it just wasn't my kinda thing.

Be sure to check out Nightfall too, with a new guy on the vocals. I think it's a slightly better album overall. But if epic doom isn't your thing, then I guess one singer won't change that.

Chapter IV is my favorite, mostly because I really like Vikstrom as a singer. You should try him out Cill

Candlemass actually finally clicked for me. Probably one of the biggest leap in tastes I've had in recent memory because I used to really not like EDM and now I feel it's a seriously solid album. And I listened to Nightfall today and that is also quite good. I guess for me it was just one of those bands that takes a few listens but I'm glad I like them now.

I listened to Epicus Doomicus Metallicus and I can't believe how catchy that album is. It clicked instantly.

They said they once saw Candlemass live in Skellefteå, whit Messiah.
They said he was jumping on a stage and felt under, because was to heavy and stage did not hold---- is it true?

My first Candlemass album was Ancient Dreams which I got on vinyl in '88 and I've pretty much been hooked ever since. Like all bands they've put out some patchy stuff now and again but as a body of work they've produced some of the classics of the genre. Some of my fave tracks are Solitude, Darkness In Paradise (epic riff), At The Gallows End and Black Dwarf. Hoping for some more new material soon.
