Candlemass was formed by bassist and songwriter Leif Edling in Stockholm, Sweden in 1984, and 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.

Epicus Doomicus Metallicus is a true classic. Heavy metal riffs blended with almost neo-classical touches, plus some theatrical elements bringing to mind 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 and was released later that same year. The vocals were handled by Johan Längqvist, 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 and the US.

Bands such as Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride to this day rate Epicus... among their most inspirational albums.
