5.0 out of 5 stars The masters of gothic doom are back!, 23 May 2005
graeme - See all my reviews
This review is from: Candlemass (Audio CD)
Candlemass were the first band I saw live in 1988. Back then in the days of thrash metal they were playing the slowest, heaviest songs going. The slow pace allowed so much more power and emotion to show through. Imagine a great loss in your life, accompanied by the release of letting go. That describes Candlemass. And, 'Nightfall' is one of the best metals albums of all time and it was sad to see them disappear. This album matches Nightfall, especially as it benefits from a better,heavier and more modern sound. No-one has ever matched Messiah's haunting and majestic singing, especially when doom metal bands in recent times usually have second rate death metal vocals. I think only Solitude Aeturnus or Trouble have ever come close to matching Candlemass. If you like this buy Octavia's album too. Are you ready to doom dance?!
