CANDLEMASS
The eleventh full-length studio album by legendary Swedish Epic Doom Metal band.
At the time of its release, the band stated that this would be their final album, though bassist and founding member Leif Edling has since retracted this claim. "Psalms For The Dead" is, however, the last Candlemass album recorded with former Solitude Aeturnus singer Robert Lowe, who left the Candlemass just six days before its release.
As an album to sum up an illustrious career, "Psalms For The Dead" provides enough of what you would expect from Candlemass. One can confidently state that "Psalms For The Dead" sees Candlemass going out, if not on a high, certainly in strong health, and obviously on their own terms. The release is filled with such highlights as "Dancing in the Temple of the Mad Queen Bee" or the sweeping opening track "Prophet", which beautifully showcases the band's strengths. Singer Robert Lowe embellishes the songs with his characteristic vocals and sounds as though he has been a part of Candlemass from the band's early beginnings. The powerful and crystal-clear production delivers a first-class sound that will send shivers down one's spine. All in all, it's quite a remarkable display of songwriting skill for sheer variation alone, but each song is a killer with something unique to offer, each a stellar Doom Metal anthem.
A collection of excellent tunes that grips from the first listen and proves its quality more on every listen! The masters have done their best once again, and they can retire knowing that Candlemass has gone out on a high!!
The bonus DVD features "a making of" and cuts from the "70.000 Tons Of Metal" cruise!!!
