Candlemass - Epicus Doomicus MetallicusVendor: Peaceville
Release: RSD 2016
NEW VINYL PICTURE VINYL ON PEACEVILLE FOR RSD 2016.
This limited 30th anniversary edition of 'Epicus Doomicus Metallicus' is a special Record Store Day release and is presented on 12" picture disc vinyl featuring the iconic cover image, with accompanying printed bag.
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.
