    Anyone else think that Candlemasses first four albums are some of the greatest doom albums of all time? :headbang:

    I think pretty much everybody thinks that.

    Except for me. Much too 80s and epic for me, not to my taste. Their more recent work is effing great though.

    The first four Candlemass albums, along with Trouble, are standard issue doom albums in my player.

    The self-titled reunion album kicks all kinds of ass as well :kickass:

    There's no such thing as too epic.

    Epic stuff rubs me the wrong way. Even the epic stuff I like has to be played sparringly or my head will explode.

    Trouble's first 4 > Candlemass's first 4.

    Both are great though.

    their early stuff is sextacular and their later stuff is absolutely solid heavy metal.

    An appreciation of Candlemass is an appreciation of life itself.

    Nightfall is one of my favorite metal albums of all time.

    Jesus, whenever there's a discussion over Candlemass' first 4, the only two anyone ever mentions are EDM and Nightfall. How about some Tales of Creation love?

    I lost it like the day after I bought it, if I ever bought it, I can't even remember.

    Tales of Creation > Nightfall for me. But EDM has to win with those first two songs.

    Also, I wasn't under the impression that Trouble was all that good after Psalm 9, what else is worthwhile?

    Tales of Creation is boring.

    I would never say such blasphemy! Say whatever you will but do not disgrace my name with vile thoughts! ;)

    As for the 80s... It had its share of great metal without question. But I'm a 90s guy. 80s had too much upbeatness too it.

    Tales of Creation is my favourite after Epicus Doomicus Metallicus. The re-recording of 'Under the Oak' is great and probably better than the original.

    How the fuck is Tales of Creation boring if Nightfall isn't?

    By the way, we definitely needed a thread for this.
