Bio:

Candlemass is an influential Swedish doom metal band established in Stockholm 1984 by bassist, songwriter and bandleader Leif Edling and drummer Matz Ekström. After releasing five full-length albums and touring extensively throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, Candlemass disbanded in 1994, but reunited three years later. After breaking up again in 2002, Candlemass reformed in 2004 and have continued to record and perform since then. Candlemass is also the seventh best selling artist coming out from Sweden selling as of 2010 more than 15 million albums worldwide.After the breakup of his first band Nemesis, bassist Leif Edling started his own band under the name Candlemass with vocalist Johan Längqvist, drummer Matz Ekström, guitarist Mats "Mappe" Bjorkman and Klas Bergwall. Their first release, Epicus Doomicus Metallicus (1986), immediately secured their standing, positioning the band within metal circles, setting a milestone in the doom metal scene.Following the band's debut album Längqvist was replaced by Messiah Marcolin. By the time the band entered the studio to record their second effort, Nightfall, in 1987, Bergwall and Ekström had left the band. Jan Lindh joined the band on drums, and Lars Johansson joined the band on guitars following the completion of the album.Candlemass's next two albums were Ancient Dreams (1988) and Tales of Creation (1989). In 1990, the band released a live album Live. Shortly afterward, a dispute between the band members resulted in Messiah Marcolin's departure.

Album:

With The Door To Doom Swedish doom superstars Candlemass achieved their biggest success so far being nominated for the US American Grammys and had a very prominent guest appearance by Tony Iommi. Now they are back with their 13th regular studio album Sweet Evil Sun with a guest appearance again but that I will come later to. One may be superstitious about the unlucky number but if you have a look at other bands and their 13th release the Rolling Stones were pretty successful with “Goats Head Soup”, AC/DC with “Stiff Upper Lip” and also Black Sabbath did a great album with “The Eternal Idol” (okay this is my opinion, hehe!). So the chance for another good release is probably given – let's have a look at the album.Starting with a typical doom stomper that has the typical Candlemass trademarks you instantly get a good feeling about the album, although I sometimes have the feeling that the bands copies itself a little bit with that guitar solo which also could have had been on Death Magic Doom ('Demon Of The Deep'). The first song that was previously released was 'Sweet Evil Sun' which is a fantasticly atmospheric song with some 70s-like Hammond organ sounds. This is a very catchy track with some really bitter and sarcastic lyrics. With 'When Death Sighs' they have composed a very unusual track for the band doing a fantastic vocal duet performed with Jennie-Ann Smith you may know from Avatarium. The band that Leif Edling founded in 2012 but isn't on board any more. The song is a slow, creeping, gloomy and atmospheric track where a lot of tension is built in its course. Another very dark and catchy track is 'Scandinavian Gods'. It has some doomy Manowar influences and may be the next hymn where everybody can join singing at the concerts. I guess this will be a love it or hate it thing. Two faster songs on the album are 'Devil Voodoo' where Jonas performs much more melodic vocals than on the other songs and 'Angle Battle' with some hammering riffs and much aggression in it. The songwriting is very sophisticated here with a lot of tempo changes and breaks.So what is the conclusion about all that? Well, with Sweet Evil Sun, Candlemass once again rolls out a very good album which is so much easier to listen to than The Door To Doom because of the catchier and simpler structured songs (which isn't meant with some negative agenda here). Candlemass leave their traditional music path on some parts only (like on 'When Death Sighs') but if you liked the last few albums you will for sure like Sweet Evil Sun. Maybe a little bit more progression would have been interesting and would have brought some freshness into the fold but what we have here is a very classic doom metal album and that isn't bad at all.
