Release

Swedish doom legends Candlemass returns with their first studio album in seven years, and it also marks the return of singer Johan Längquist to the line-up. As most of you probably already know Längquist was the man behind the microphone on their legendary 1986 album 'Epicus Doomicus Metallicus', and in my opinion 'The Door To Doom' may very well be their best album since that memorable debut.  Leif Edling is still the master of riffs for sure and there are tons of them on this album, both slow doomy riffs and more uptempo stuff and every single one of them contributes to the huge, epic atmosphere that surrounds this album. Längquist's vocal performance is another highlight giving me goosebumps from start to end, what a passionate and inspiring performance. The track 'Astorolus - The Great Octopus' features a guest performance from non other than Mr. Toni Iommy and I'm sure the Black Sabbath main man must have felt very comfortable in this musical landscape. All eight songs on 'The Door To Doom' are top notch quality fitted into an organic and powerful production. If there is something such as a perfect doom album, this one comes very very close. Highly recommended!
