    Gone are the good days of the exceptional Vocals in Candlemass...........Based upon that recent clip, that vocalist is a bad match for the band. Nothing about his voice at all screams Doom...........I

    I do like Mats Leven's voice, and I think he did a good job fronting Candlemass when I saw them at Maryland Deathfest a few years ago. But I have to agree that the new song doesn't quite sound like doom metal to my ears. It sounds a bit like a mid-paced power metal song. Not bad, but I wouldn't immediately think it's a Candlemass song if I didn't already know it was.

    Awesome. It's doomy in the Dio era Sabbath/Heaven And Hell kind of way. Definitely heavy, and I think Mats is a great fit in this band. He kicked ass with Leif Edling in Krux...I expect more of the same here.

    Candlemass played the Rock Hard festival this summer. I like it.

    I'll admit I haven't given these guys a fair shake over the years, I just assumed they were noisy cookie monster band. May have to check out more...
