During the mid-80s, the European heavy metal scene was dominated by countless thrash, death, and black metal bands playing at breakneck speeds and screaming in a high-pitched frenzy. So when Candlemass released their debut, Epicus Doomicus Metallicus in 1986, its songs (featuring slow, lumbering riffs straight out of the Black Sabbath handbook and vocals delivered in a baritone, operatic style) offered up a stylistic curve ball of shocking proportions. After disposing of its deceptively optimistic introductory acoustic guitar, opener “Solitude” develops into a complete monster, replete with lyrics of suicidal depression and churning with the most colossal, down-tuned guitar riff since Sabbaths “Iron Man.” And thats just the beginning, as succeeding tracks “Demons Gate,” “Crystal Ball,” and “Under the Oak” (later re-recorded for the bands fourth album Tales of Creation) trudge by with deliberate, immutable doom. A pillar of classic ’80s metal, this album will satisfy all doomsters.
