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.

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.

As special edition as come back album its week, but dont take it so, special albums must be special, mostly are failures, but as simple album its nice, a bit less epic, some epic eleements, old roots in song writing, lyrics and Messiah vocals, basically decent album if you drop that special idea.
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!
