Candlemass was formed by bassist & songwriter Leif Edling in Stockholm, Sweden in 1984 & is well known for its epic doom metal, having a great influence over a generation of the genre's subsequent greats such as Paradise Lost & My Dying Bride - Candlemass themselves taking a large influence from Black Sabbath.



‘Ancient Dreams’ was Candlemass' third album, released in 1988 & it featured a natural progression of slow-mid tempo epic arrangements from their previous release, ‘Nightfall’ - perhaps even more distinction between slow & faster parts - with the unique tones & unmistakable voice of Messiah Marcolin still dominating proceedings on this pure doom metal classic.



With a perfect balance between melody & sheer heaviness, it is still debatable as to whether this is the ultimate Candlemass & therefore greatest doom metal album of all time, with some giving this title preference over the seminal ‘Nightfall’ album.



‘Ancient Dreams’ was produced by Leif Edling & Candlemass & was recorded at Stockholm Recording studios in 1988.



This edition of ‘Ancient Dreams’ is presented on single black vinyl, featuring the original cover art.
