Original CD - CD MFN 95
Picture LP - PLP MFN 95P

Recorded at Stockholm Recording, June / July 1989.

"Under the Oak" is a re-recording of a song that originally appeared on "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus" (and also the "Tales of Creation" demo -see bonus reissue disc).

Leif Edling originally wanted another Thomas Cole painting for the cover, but his bandmates "talked him out of it". A modified Gustave Doré work called 'The Creation of Light' was used instead.

Remastered and reissued by Powerline Records with a bonus CD in a slipcase.
The tracklist for the bonus disc is:
1. Dark Reflections (demo) (3:21)
2. Under the Oak (demo) (7:44)
3. Into the Unfathomed Tower (demo) (3:10)
4. Somewhere in Nowhere (demo) (4:37)
5. A Tale of Creation (demo) (5:55)
6. Interview (19:29)
7. Dark Reflections (Video).
The demo tracks were recorded in 1985 by one of the earliest incarnations of Candlemass.
The interview was conducted in 2001.

Candlelight Records reissued this version of the album in 2005, without the slipcase.

Tales of Creation Comments

level   (90/100)
I don't know about y'all, but man I sure love myself some good ol' Doom Metal music. Now Candlemass' fourth album, Tales of Creation, did just the trick cause it fit in both the categories. Old, yeah sure, but good also. Just give a listen to the stunning riffs they procure your ears.
