Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of the Swedish Doom Metal band's 1986 debut, released to coincide with the album's 25th Anniversary. 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. All-in-all, this is considered one of the definitive Doom Metal releases. This edition of Epicus... includes a special commentary disc with founding member Leif Edling, recorded early 2011, discussing his memories and inspirations of the writing and recording process whilst the tracks play. The booklet also contains liner notes from the band, including an introduction from Aaron Stainthorpe of My Dying Bride. Peaceville.

The energy and emotion he puts into this album truly makes it what it is.

this band was the first to coin the phrase and whether you know it or not, they inspired almost every Scandinavian black metal band, having a huge impact on Darkthrone namely. I love lots of metal (except nu-metal), but if I had to make a choice of one album I could listen to for all time, this would be it. For only having 6 songs, it's still a solid album and every single song delievers. I've read various reviews on different metal webzines harshly criticizing session singer Johan Langquist's performance and I gotta be tactless and say: they're effing idiots! His vocals are completely solid and the only mistake he made was NOT joining Candlemass when he had the chance. Everything about his performance is superb, heartfelt, and hyper-emotional to the point of where you'd swear the lyrics were is own. I very much prefer his efforts over those of Messiah, whom I always thought brought more vibrato to the table than Stevie Nicks --that's a whole nother can of beans though. I can't find one damn thing I don't like about this album. You're not gonna find another debut as impressive unless you're looking at Appetite for Destruction, but that's not doom metal.

Much to my personal chagrin, Candlemass was not a part of my life until the end of 2013 when my younger brother first introduced me to the masters of doom. Browsing his extensive collection of Candlemass records, I was immediately struck by the iconic cover art of Epicus Doomicus Metallicus. I decided to give it a spin.

It was love at first listen.

From the crushing weight of the sheer hopelessness captured by "Solitude" to the wild, eight minute finale that is "A Sorcerer's Pledge," Epicus Doomicus Metallicus is one of those rare, flawless records that I feel comfortable calling "life-changing." There is not a dull moment, a boring riff, a bad vocal, or anything else disappointing about the album. It's perfect.

Being that this is the 25th Anniversary Edition of Epicus, if you're reading this you probably already know how unbelievably awesome the album is. As such, I'll spare you the pages of gushing praise I could write about Epicus and focus instead on what the 25th Anniversary Edition (25th A.E. from here on out) offers fans.

Being a Candlemass newbie, I don't own any other editions of Epicus. However, I've listened to the original pressing, and I can state confidently that the 25th A.E. manages to sound quite a bit clearer and significantly fuller without losing any of the rawness that makes it so appealing. What I don't know is how the 25th A.E. compares to other reissues. Still, it sounds very good through my Bose speakers, the only noticeable issue being some crackly stuff (possibly mic bleed on the original recording?) early in "A Sorcerer's Pledge," which I suspect is impossible to remove without destroying Johan Langquist's epic vocal tracks.

In addition to the remastered pressing of Epicus, the 25th A.E.

I have tons of music: CDs and digital. But I listen to this album quite frequently: considering how much music I have. My apologies to Black Sabbath, but I can't imagine there's a better doom metal album than this. There's a reason why, when I posted this review, it had gotten nothing but 5 out of 5 stars. If you like metal, check out the real thing.
