Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Candlemass are an influential Swedish doom metal band established in 1984 by Leif Edling (bass), their leader and songwriter. The band is originally from Stockholm. After releasing five full-length albums and touring extensively throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, Candlemass disbanded in 1994, but decided to reform three years later. The band continues to record and perform today. After the breakup of his first band Nemesis, bassist Leif Edling started his own band under the name Candlemass with vocalist Johan L ngqvist, guitarist Mats Mappe Bjorkman, and drummer Matz Ekstr m. Their first release, Epicus Doomicus Metallicus (1986), immediately secured their standing, positioning the band within metal circles, setting a milestone in the doom metal scene. L ngqvist only recorded that one album with Candlemass, however. His successor as frontman, Messiah Marcolin, joined the band for their second effort, Nightfall, in 1987. Two other new members appeared on this album: lead guitarist Lars Johansson and drummer Jan Lindh.show more
