The best album Sabbath never made,
By A Customer
This review is from: Nightfall: Remastered (Audio CD)
Dark, bleak, intense and scary, Candlemass set out their stall from the opening notes and opening lyric, "Crypt of despair..." This album is a benchmark recording by which all other doom metal recordings should be judged. Messiah Marcolin's voice soars above the pounding drums, deafening bass and blistering riffs. Subtle this is not. Stand out tracks include "Gothic Stone/Well of Souls" and "Bewitched". If you like your metal loud, heavy, menacing and dark, then get this.
