Candlemass Epicus Doomicus Metallicus on 180g LP

Candlemass was formed by bassist and songwriter Leif Edling in Stockholm, Sweden in 1984, and is well known for its epic doom metal, having a great influence over a generation of the genre’s subsequent greats - Candlemass themselves taking a large influence from Black Sabbath. 

Epicus Doomicus Metallicus is a true classic. Every track is undeniably strong - heavy metal riffs blended with almost neo-classical touches, plus some theatrical elements bringing to mind bands like Mercyful Fate (thought to be another influence). This is one of the definitive Doom Metal releases, immortalizing the band, alongside early developers of the style such as the US band, Pentagram. 

Epicus Doomicus Metallicus was recorded at Thunderload Studios in 1986 and was released later that same year. The vocals for this, their debut album, were handled by Johan Längqvist, before the iconic vocalist Messiah Marcolin became a solid fixture in the band until the early nineties. 

Candlemass instantly became a great inspiration to countless metal bands upon the album's release in 1986, a time when thrash metal, not doom, was fast becoming the dominant style in both Europe and the US. This edition of Epicus Doomicus Metallicus is presented on heavyweight 180g vinyl.
