Candlemass, the founders of epic doom metal.
Their First four albums Epicus Doomicus Metallicus, Nightfall, Ancient Dreams, Tales of Creation are flawless, and its very difficult to choose the best from these bests.

So defn there must be many Candlemass and epic doom metal fans around with views for this Epic band.

(Arguing If Candlemass was the first doom metal band or weather Epicus Doomicus Metallicus was the first doom metal album is what most of the times is discussed and i would recommend to keep away frm these "Arguable" issues)

Views About the band, albums and Fav tracks, news etc Post On....

Ok, I see that the samples have already grown on me (Of Stars & Smoke...).

OT: What should I get from Solitude Aeturnus? Only have Alone so far.

You should get EVERYTHING form SA imo although Alone is darker than their earlier works (especially their first two) and the production on Downfall is very muddled which ruins the album quite a lot although the songs on it are good.

I don't know ... I tried so many times to listen to the s/t and it didn't grown o me
I just didn't feel anything... Maybe I need to listen to it a little bit more.

Hey, and guess what. I was thinking about you when I was in the city with my family just today.
We were looking for some clothes and stuff and then I see a woman that looked like 40-45 years old and she had a Candlemass t-shirt [from the first cd... I love that skull] and a black jacket... She looked more tr00 and brutal than me And... then you came to my mind with the same t-shirt but looking even more true.

Nah... That wasn't what I was thinking when I saw her. It was like a female version of what I think of you. Not that you looked like her :p

And the Candlemass t-shirt maded her look true and smart XD

Yes I have it here since December 27th and really enjoy it. It is way spookier than anything done by Candlemass or Krux and the emphasis is a lot more on the keyboard/organ sound.

Damn... I'm so obsessed with the song "Of Stars And Smoke".
Rob did really an awesome job on the chorus... It almost med me cry or something. Really touching stuff.

I will buy that album no matter what.

I still can't see the greatness of the s/t... I found it decent at best @___@

I never said the S/T was great just said you should get it. King Of The Grey Islands is superior to the s/t imo. But the s/t is better than Tales Of Creation, Chapter VI, and Dactylus...

I think you're confusing me with SOuthern Wind when it comes to the s/t one.

Nah.. I just quoted you as an example... I have already seen some other people on this forum that say that the s/t is freaking good and same goes to all the reviws on MA [I know.. not good reviews] but I still don't understand the fuss.

Am I the only one that feels that Candlemass is going more into the direction of (US) Power Metal? Iced Earth, mostly (but perhaps that's because I don't know much other US power...)

The riffs are shorter, Rob Lowe's vocal lines are not as drawn out and wailing as those of Messiah and Lanqvuist, the music has lost heaviness through crushing riffs, and more through speed, in my opinion.

No, I'm not saying that they are now Power metal and exactly the same as Helloween, I'm saying that they are growing slightly more into that direction.

What do you all think?

I think it gets more groove but as of power metal no. Messiah's operatic falsetto like vocals sound way more suitable for a power metal band imo. I also discoverd that Messiah actually also played in a doom/power band Memento Mori.

Not doom just because they have faster tracks? Or what? Cause every single album by them is undisputed doom except for a couple of moments, but that's it.

How long band playing metal? how many years?
Of corse new albumsd isnt like 80's but its still doom, I hear new album, I didnt hear so strong US power influences, ok it wasnt slow like pure doom, but still its doom metal, in that case Black Sabbath after Ozzy n Dio isnt doom

Heh, not doom because it's just not doom. There's very little doomy content about their music nowadays. People get too attached to with tagging specific titles despite changes in style.

It still is doom their newer works, just a different style of doom than on their old albums. If, for example, the last two albums aren't doom, then nothing in the world is dooom anymore
OKay so there are a couple of songs that have very little doomy content but 90% of their songs sure as hell still do possess it.

Well I still miss their "doom" days (though that could easily be interpreted as the Messiah days) though admitedly I got more of that feel from this one than the previous release which I didn't enjoy as much as this one.

I'm trying to write down the lyrics from their new album.
Please add or adjust. I know, there must be some crazy mistakes in there, but I'm not a native english speaker

IF I EVER DIE

If I ever die
I'm begging you, please come with me
We're gonna (...) into the blue.

All the parasites, all just leave their books and fly
There's no tomorrow, no regrets, no goodbyes

I will fly into the sunset, way up high,
don't be sorry, nothing good i leave behind
you don't worry, evil lasts a hundred lifetimes,
what happens to me, .....

Rivers will dry
Mirrors will break
Hell feels like ice
The mountains will shake

if i ever die (x3)
the stars will drop from the sky
the gods will mourn me and cry
if i ever die

(solo)

If I ever die
I'm begging you, please come with me
We're gonna (...) into the blue.

All the parasites, all just leave their books and fly
There's no tomorrow, no regrets, no goodbyes

Rivers will dry
Mirrors will break
Hell feels like ice
The mountains will shake

if i ever die (x4)
i wanna know, when and why


HAMMER OF DOOM

In the evening rain I'm standing outside the .. (opera?)
I've been there before a while ago with Nosferatu
Saw the execution of my tomorrow
saw it and bowed

In the theatre of hellfire, the inferno is now
the inferno is now!

I'm lost again and lean against the purgatory gate,
release my suffering, you're offering to unlock my fate
the black rhapsody, I can not breathe inside my tomb
the ..... (interior? .... boom?)
the hammer of doom

The hammer of doom! (x7)

Ain't no sun where i go
I stop where no roses grow
Desperate in a typhoon
Wielding the hammer of doom

The hammer of doom! (x4)

THE BLEEDING BARONESS

Can you see her? Slender and pale,
but so graceful she walks down the stairs.
A perception of mists fills the air,
Kiss of darkness, (the barons are here?)

In the tower shadows lurk,
Full moon power, baroness noble sleep,
The daily escape, (...?) misty
soon awake, preying for her nightly slave

She so ruthless, evil grotesque (.... ?)
baroness, godless!
blood is precious, so delicious
vampire (walk?) ferociously, viscious spree,

(chorus:)
the bleeding baroness, hours of slumber
just before she will take you and make you wish that you've never been born
the bleeding baroness, crimes of passion
she needs you and feeds you and bleeds you with the rise of the moon
(chorus/)

hart is bleeding, time is fleeing, she's barely breathing
Baroness, your ancient (wrists?)
now in shock, suprising stop, can't stop the clock
(...?)

(chorus)

Can you see her? Slender and pale,
but so graceful she walks down the stairs.
A perception of mists fills the air.
Kiss of darkness, the barons' own lair

The white greed smiles of creatures alive,
thirsty for ever, thirsty and proud.
(Bloody drips of red?), slowly down her chest.
Blood is life, blood is death.

In the tower shadows lurk,
Full moon power, baroness noble sleep,
The daily escape, (...?) misty
soon awake, preying for her nightly slave

(chorus)

The bleeding baroness, hours of slumber.
The bleeding baroness, the spell i'm under.

What is the price for your beauty?
(....?) (show all the jewels?)
the morning comes like a tide
you wish you could turn back the time

there is no love in the chamber of blood!

DEMON OF THE DEEP

Black (chiseled?) beast, under the surface
Demon of the deep, above is (...)
A water dome, ancient predator,
Atlantis is home, for this carnivore

Tyrant of the abyss, plague of the seas,
gentle cold kiss, razor sharp teeth,
guardian of the grave, three hellish heads,
ten miles below, city of the dead.

satan of sleep, your pitch black keep, yours forever
demon laughter, your (worlds not left), a sunken wasteland,
oh your name was lost, (...), never spoke(n?) aloud

Born in triton's gate,
a million years await,
seeking out his prey,
(... fallen sheep?)

Down there in the darkness, centuries of evil
And his arms will take you deeper, deeper
(Blackness under water, in your secret kingdom?)
and you feel his embrace sweeter, sweeter

HOUSE OF A THOUSAND VOICES

Inside the house that burned(...?)
No exit, no return,
A place of (oak?) and ashes,
Silence of a thousand voices.

(chorus:)
In the ruins of blackened wood,
the house of orphans stood
no (...?) no childhood existed,
(...?) you never lived

In the house of a thousand voices,
there is a howl of a thousand devils,
broken dreams, no hopes no choices
just a thought, (...?) of evil
there is a room that no one has seen,
in the walls, a thousand screams
Little voices (...?)
in the mirrors, you see their faces
(/chorus)

(Between the trash, grass and berries?)
In the yard there's something buried,
There's a smell something that's wrong,
(...?)

Tiny feet and tiny shoes,
in the shadows that still run loose
(...?) murder and death!

(chorus)
