고딩2년때 동네레코드가게에서 자켓만 보고 500원에 구입한빽판이 바로 캔들매스의
나잇폴이었다. 이 앨범은 아직도 개인적으로 즐겨듣는 앨범으로 누가 머라해도 내 생각엔
전작 Epicus Doomicus Metallicus 도 훌륭하지만 이 앨범이 그들의 최고작이다.
곡의 구성력이나 연주등 여러가지 측면에서 흠잡을것이 하나도 없이 느껴지며 단연 최고는
메시아의 보컬이다...둠메탈의 교과서중의 교과서!!!

날 둠 메탈의 길로 이끌어준 명반... 묵직한 기타 연주와 메시아의 에픽한 보컬이 마구 빛을 발한다.
level   (95/100)
An another timeless classic, released in a streak. Make sure to check out the music video of Bewitched featuring Dead.
level   (95/100)
Bewitched 뮤직비디오는 The Call of the Wintermoon과 더불어 명작이다.
level   (95/100)
보컬도 보컬이지만 기타도 주목할 것
level   (95/100)
At the Gallows End의 인트로...에픽함이 무어냐 하면 이거다 라고 제시한다.
level   (95/100)
jednoznačne ich najlepší album, ktorý aj ukázal smer niektorým doomovým kapelám (samozrejme aj s vplyvom Black Sabbath)
level   (95/100)
왜 메시아 메시아 거리는지 알겠다
level   (90/100)
전작에 쓰레쉬, 블랙메탈과 흡사한 스타일을 떠나, 둠메탈의 근간을 확립한 바로 그 작품~~
level   (95/100)
1집다음으로 최고작이라고 생각한다. 메시아의 보컬은 웅장하다..
level   (86/100)
Gothic Stone 멜로디와 Nile Unas Slayer Of Gods의 초반 어쿠스틱 기타 소리가 비슷하게 들리는 건 기분 탓?
level   (90/100)
캔들매스 최고의 앨범. 메시아의 장엄한 보컬이 압권이다
