THE ICONIC 1986 DOOM METAL OPUS 'EPICUS DOOMICUS METALLICUS', FEATURING REMASTERED AUDIO & PRESENTED WITH ITS ORIGINAL SLEEVE DESIGN. Candlemass was formed by bassist & songwriter Leif Edling in Stockholm, Sweden in 1984 & they are well known for their epic doom metal, having a great influence over a generation of the genre's subsequent greats - Candlemass themselves taking a large influence from Black Sabbath. Bands such as Paradise Lost & My Dying Bride to this day rate 'Epicus...' among their most inspirational albums. 'Epicus Doomicus Metallicus' is a true classic. Heavy metal riffs blended with almost neo-classical touches, plus some theatrical elements recalling bands like Mercyful Fate (thought to be another influence). All-in-all, this is considered one of the definitive Doom Metal releases. 'Epicus ? ' was recorded at Thunderload Studios in 1986 & was released later that same year. The vocals were handled by Johan L ngqvist, before the iconic vocalist Messiah Marcolin became a solid fixture in the band until the early nineties. Candlemass instantly became a great inspiration to countless metal bands upon the album's release in 1986; a time when thrash metal, not doom, was fast becoming the dominant style in both Europe & the US. This edition of 'Epicus Doomicus Metallicus' features recently remastered audio courtesy of Patrick Engel at Temple of Disharmony & is presented with its original sleeve design.
