Candlemass enter one of their most celebrated lineups here with the addition of Messiah and record the great Nightfall. By 1987, Candlemass was pretty much indisputably the best Doom band around, especially solidifying the fact after dropping a follow up album just as amazing as their debut (both of which remain their finest works in most people’s opinion).

They continue the same style as their debut, adding an epic and even uplifting sound to the slow and simple Doom genre, rife with religious symbolism as well as occult fantasy. Messiah and leif grab all the attention here, as Leif wrote most if not all of the music, including many of Trad Doom’s most memorable riffs, and Messiah puts on a vocal performance that would sound at home in an opera show. The act works well for the epic Doom rockers, and many of the songs tell small tales that effectively play off this aesthetic.

Unfortunately, while the debut was strictly 6 great songs, this album has a bit of filler found in mostly pointless interludes between songs. At the Gallows’ End and Samarithan are two of the greatest songs the band ever wrote, but the filler puts this album just below the debut in my opinion.

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!!!

둠메탈의 고전작. 4번트랙이 인상깊다.

메시아의 보컬은 마치 오지와 디오의 장점만 합쳐 놓은 것 같다. 거기에 라스 요한슨의 기승전결 확실한 기타솔로까지 더해지니 장르명에 에픽이란 말이 붙지 않을 수가 없지

90년대 중반인가 세운상가에서 우연히 백판으로 구한 앨범이다. 내용을 알수 없어 앨범표지만 보고 감으로 찍었는데 표지에 어울리게 장엄하고 웅장하게 울려퍼지는 둠메탈에 빠져들 수 밖에 없었다. 캔들메스의 최고작으로 꼽고싶다

날 둠 메탈의 길로 이끌어준 명반... 묵직한 기타 연주와 메시아의 에픽한 보컬이 마구 빛을 발한다.

An another timeless classic, released in a streak. Make sure to check out the music video of Bewitched featuring Dead.

Bewitched 뮤직비디오는 The Call of the Wintermoon과 더불어 명작이다.

At the Gallows End의 인트로...에픽함이 무어냐 하면 이거다 라고 제시한다.

jednoznačne ich najlepší album, ktorý aj ukázal smer niektorým doomovým kapelám (samozrejme aj s vplyvom Black Sabbath)

전작에 쓰레쉬, 블랙메탈과 흡사한 스타일을 떠나, 둠메탈의 근간을 확립한 바로 그 작품~~

Gothic Stone 멜로디와 Nile Unas Slayer Of Gods의 초반 어쿠스틱 기타 소리가 비슷하게 들리는 건 기분 탓?
