Candlemass “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus” is latest entry to the 3D Vinyl Collector Series

The doom “metalpiece” from Candlemass “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus” is latest entry to the 3D Vinyl® Collector Series from KnuckleBonz®. This 1986 release in considered a defining moment on the heavy metal timeline.

We launched pre-sales last Friday for Candlemass. The signature skull of Epicus Doomicus Metallicus is mounted atop dilapidated oak, not exactly “Under the Oak” if you will pardon the pun. Rusty barb wire encircles this design atop the classic Candlemass red logo. We went back and forth between the 12×12″ format we used for things like Mercyful Fate “Don’t Break the Oath” 3D Vinyl and this table top design. We opted for this ultimately because you Superfans have been telling us you prefer that format.

The Canlemass 3D Vinyl Ltd Edition Statue is  cast in resin and hand detailed. It stand’s 10 inches tall and ships with a color package and custom packing. Only 1986 of this design will be cast for Candlemass and Doom Metal Superfans around the world.

Don’t miss out. Pre-Order your here.

Candlemass “Doom’s Day” – Epicus Doomicus Metallicus

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.

Candlemass “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus” Track Listing:

1. Solitude
