Candlemass was doom before the term even existed. It could be argued they are responsible for the term with their classic 1986 release ‘Epicus Doomicus Metallicus’, but is this really relevant? After all, they were just playing the slow and heavy style of metal they loved, at a time when no one cared. Lucky for us and them, times have changed. Now with original vocalist Johan Längqvist back in lead, Candlemass is here to take their rightful position as pioneers of doom!
