Post Candlemass Appreciation thread
Inspired by the godliness of the live version of 'If I Ever Die' on the new Ashes to Ashes LP.

Candlemass + new singer= reinvigorated

I have to say, in many ways Messiah will always be the Candlemass vocalist for me, but the last album is so good it doesn't matter, and you cant argue with Lowe as a frontman, his track record with Solitude Aeturnus is pretty astounding anyway. Nightfall is still my favourite album of theirs though, and one of my all time top albums. Still didn't get my copy of the new live cd/dvd, hopefully it will arrive during the week.

Agree with Wretched about Messiah, but Lowe is so perfect that it sounds like he's always been their vocalist.

As classics go, "Epicus..." is right near the top for me. That album got me out of my phase of not wanting to hear a clean vocalist in any of my music. I was all gutteral or heavy thrash for a spell in the 80's. 'Solitude" made quick work of that. On that particular line, the 20 year anniversary video is pretty sweet all around but THE moment was Johan Lanqvist joining them for "Demon's Gate". A godly moment if there ever was one.



I could only find a fan filmed version of it online, but if you like this at all, get the 20th Ann. dvd. he does a couple of other songs with them that night as well.

I was never bothered about them. I remember sniggering away to myself at their tracks on the 3-Way Thrash video, but got the self-titled album in 2005. It was alright.

Its got some great tracks but its not close to their best, Epicus..., Nightfall or even Death Magic Doom are far better introductions, you should give them another chance, they really are great.

Maybe. I'm in no rush, it must be said.

True doom moves slower than you anyway. Plenty of time to come around.

Got into Candlemass about 10 years ago, following endless recommendations. They turned out to be one of the few bands whose output actually was as incredible as everyone told me it was (Celtic Frost being another), and they've been one of my favourite bands ever since. Epicus..., Nightfall and Ancient Dreams are untouchable, but the recent albums are certainly not embarrassing.

The Messiah era is real, certainly, but the last two albums pound Tales Of Creation and the self-titled to dust.

Who was it who said that they loved Messiah's vocals, but secretly preferred them when they didn't have a comedy fat-man in a monk's costume stomping around sucking the drama out of everything? I'm with them.

I've only seen them on DVD. He does seem completely great, and I'm the last person to complain about Metal being silly, but they sound so stately and majestic that his "doom dancing" doesn't always fit as well as he'd like. I would have loved to have seen them with him, though.

I think Candlemass are fantastic with Lowe. Death Magic doom is just an incredible album, easily as good as the first one.

Candlemass with Messiah=Win!!!

Candlemass without Messiah=varies in quality.

I'm not even a fan of Epicus.......

Loved Epicus, never got on with Messiah, although 'Black Dwarf' is a choon. Last two albums kick ass.
