Candlemass "Doom's Day" - Epicus Doomicus Metallicus

on

June 10th was forever known as "Doom's Day," when Candlemass released their debut album laying the cornerstone to a new musical genre "Doom Metal."

Candlemass was inspired by the fathers of all forms of metal, Black Sabbath. Adding operatic vocals to to slow, ominous riffs, Candlemass departed from the common faire of the day coming out of Europe which featured panicked speed and high pitched vocals.

While certainly not a commercial success on it's initial release, the band was actually dropped by the original record label because of slow sales. Epicus Doomicus Metallicus is now permanently etched in the timeline of all true metal fans of any form.
