Another definitive doom metal release from Candlemass, and this one dropped in 1987, a year after the band's booming debut, Epicus Doomicus Metallicus. Thundering riffs and sombre melodies once again dominate the epic album, but Nightfall (non-pic disc pressing also available) is when Messiah Marcolin joined as the new vocalist, and his contribution steals the show. Operatic and drenched in vibrato, his remarkable tone pushes the band's intense sound into fierier pits. A must have for fans of metal, this is the limited-edition pic disc pressing, Check out "The Well Of Souls," "At The Gallows End," "Samarithan," "Bewitched," and "Codex Gigas."
