Home Page:

Candlemass are the founders of the modern doom metal scene. While they started off excellent (the first 3 albums are masterpieces), they slowly faded towards mediocrity after Tales of Creation. Luckily, they returned to form on their last release, which is a nice combination of the great doom sounds of their early work with some of the thrashiness of Abstrakt Algebra (a temporary project for Leif Edling).

After a long hiatus, Candlemass reformed and began performing live. For a while, they stated that they had no recording plans, but it seems that they decided to give it a go, releasing the excellent self-titled CD in 2005. A new disc is supposedly in the works, as well.


On January 22, 2007, it was announced that Rob Lowe of Solitude Aeturnus had joined as the new singer.
