The best Doom Metal album of 2005

Guest review by

The return of the legendary Candlemass has been a subject of speculation for years. After releasing the "Doomed For Live" live album back in 2002, I think everyone started to wonder and salivate over the possibility of hearing a new studio record. With Messiah Marcolin by the band again, it's finally happened. I'm not often extremely enthusiastic about these kinds of reunions, but I made an exception for Candlemass, and let me tell you as of now, I was not disappointed.

Rating: 8 Christ this is heavy, and very very doomy indeed. 'Black Dwarf' is uncompromisingly brutal and the longer songs towards the end never overstay their welcome. It's nothing like their 80's albums, but it sure does mark a great comeback.
