Editorial Reviews

2009 release from one of the fastest and busiest bands in the whole Doom Metal and Metal scene, Candlemass didn't hesitate to deliver a full-length studio album as a follow-up to last year's massive Lucifer Rising EP and it is as sensational and striking as its title! Death Magic Doom breaks the chains of genre restrictions and serves the listener an album of monumental, breathtaking (Doom) Metal formed to perfection. This album deserves the title "classic" right from the start because Death Magic Doom has it all: up-tempo Metal madness, grinding Doom and, most of all, those immortal hymns with achingly addictive and beautiful melody lines. Recorded at the famous Swedish Polar Studios, Death Magic Doo captures the band at their personal best: immortal songwriting, incredible guitar solos and Robert's brilliant vocals. Nuclear Blast.

Format: Audio CD
Death Magic Doom surpasses its predecessor, King of the Grey Islands, in several aspects, songwriting being the most important one. It is a doomier release with a heavier focus on achieving atmosphere, and is blessed with stronger production. It is a lot more organic sounding, boasting a great degree of dynamics in the arrangements and revealing more details upon repeat listens.

Leif Edling has composed one of the most diverse Candlemass albums to date. This is not full-on Doom Metal. Rather, it moves from doomy sounds to melodic phrases to more aggressive numbers. The writing is truly varied and inspired. On a tune like "If I Ever Die," they weave uptempo guitar rhythms with melodically gripping vocal harmonies and throaty a capella vocals while "Hammer of Doom" is their nod to Black Sabbath. It is populated with myriad elements, from hellish bells chiming to slow, grinding riffs to angry vocals and abrasive fretwork. This is easily the doomiest cut on the album.

The guitar work is phenomenal, perhaps the best in years. Lars Johansson and Mats Björkman once again prove they are the strongest guitar duo in Doom Metal. The lead solos on "The Bleeding Baroness" and "House of 1000 Voices" are trance-like. They send chills up and down the spine and only get better with each listen. They are built very patiently, allowing Lowe to set the tone as he 'duels' with the guitar lines atop Edling's fat bass lines. "The Bleeding Baroness" features an indelible bass figure in the beginning which crops up in the mid-section before an insanely melodic chorus is delivered. Likewise, "House of 1000 Voices" boasts an indestructible opening riff that would make the crowds go wild if Candlemass were to open their shows with it.

Format: Audio CD
I must begin with two observations:

1) Robert Lowe is not as good a singer as Messiah Marcolin. Messiah's voice is an instrument of operatic caliber, and Robert is not so thoroughly trained.

2) Robert Lowe is, however, by far the better vocalist. He doesn't oversing, as Messiah was wont to do. Instead, he brings a layered vocal presence to the band, changing tone and emotion as readily as pitch. Fans of Solitude Aeternus know that Lowe can shift at will from bottomless grief to boundless malice, and from philosophical introspection to baleful imprecation. Moreover, Robert Lowe is a better fit for Candlemass than Messiah was. Even a casual perusal of its classic tracks will reveal that it could use the nuances Robert brings. "Incarnation of Evil" needs a different vocal interpretation from that of "Samarithan," or of "At the Gallows End."

For these reasons, I was quite excited when I learned that Lowe had joined Candlemass, even if I did learn about it a couple of years after it happened. "Death Magic Doom" fulfills my expectations admirably.

Candlemass as a whole are at the top of their form. This album has all of the oppressive atmosphere, so reminiscent of the best of Black Sabbath, that characterized their classic work, but at the same time, the band did not feel the need to be uniformly lead-footed. Like "Ancient Dreams," this album offers a variety of tempos and atmospheres, from the delightfully sinister "The Bleeding Baroness" to the haunting "House of 1000 Voices" to a boisterous "Lucifer Rising." In every case, Lowe shows himself worthy of working alongside the legendary Leif Edling and company.

A worthy followup to the Robert Lowe debut. It's not Messiah, but I'd rather have a new direction from Candlemass than the guys giving up because Messiah is so unreliable. I think the song structures fit Robert's vocals very well (Bleeding Baroness is a stellar track, btw), and considering Solitude Aeturnus has been one of my favorite doom bands since stumbling upon them in 1993, this is a dream come true. I've been a Candlemass fan since 1987 (got a cassette of Nightfall from Coconuts Records). (I even wrote Leviathan Records for a CD version of Epicus after reading the liner notes to Flotsam and Jetsam's Doomsday for the Deceiver, IIRC.) But don't take a fan's word for it. Buy it. You'll enjoy it immensely if you even have a passing interest in Doom metal (that's not 70's tinged like say, Cathedral, who are great in their own right.)

I loved their last cd King of the Grey Islands but this might just surpass it. I think after listening to it for a week now , there is just a lot more going on this time around. The music is not just some boring doom-fest. The songs are varied and dynamic. The first song If I ever Die, is a fast almost uptempo song. But its cool and shows that these guys can still rock! But with the next song Hammer Of Doom,,,,,well,well...its like Sabbath revisted. Just cool and dark...evil riffs and mystic dread. Leif has created what might be one of the best metal release in 10 years. Robert Lowe of Solitude Aeturnus
now sounds like a trueblue member of Candlemass! He just slaughters here!
Lowe is without a doudt the best metal vocalist now. Hands down,no joke.
Lowes best work might be the S.Aeturnus cd Alone. But with this release he shine like a satanic diamond of fury. THis is a fantastc doom/metal cd. Buy it now!
