CANDLEMASS ANCIENT DREAMS Limited Gatefold 180gram Heavyweight Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
The classic slab of pure 80's doom metal from the Swedish legends - presented on double gatefold heavyweight vinyl. Candlemass was formed by bassist and songwriter Leif Edling in Stockholm, Sweden in 1984, and 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 and My Dying Bride - Candlemass themselves taking a large influence from Black Sabbath. Ancient Dreams was Candlemass' third album, released in 1988, and it featured a natural progression of slow-mid tempo epic arrangements from their previous release, Nightfall - perhaps even more distinction between slow and 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 and 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 particular title preference over the seminal Nightfall album. Ancient Dreams was produced by Leif Edling and Candlemass, and was recorded at Stockholm Recording studios in 1988. This edition of Ancient Dreams is presented on double gatefold 180gm heavyweight vinyl.
