Candlemass premiere lyric video for “House of Doom”

It only takes a few short bars of the title track “House of Doom” to feel that familiar sensation again: yes, Leif Edling aka the undisputed king of minor key songwriting has returned.

With him, he brings frenzied riffing, melancholy made sound and warm Hammond organ tapestries that form the pillars of every Candlemass classic!

Sorcerer - The Crowning of the Fire King

The state of doom these days is rather bleak, which under normal circumstances, should be good news, but the current reigning kings of it, Candlemass, seem to have fallen in disrepair, without their natural leader and with Mats Leven doing a good job, but making it sound more Crux, than Mass. Below and Mirror, bizarrely both Metal Blade acts too, have done well in recent years releasing neat albums, the latter album of Darkology (while not doom, but power/prog) containing a couple of seminal – slower numbers that would have been “fine” contenders… (ie “Beyond the Grave”), but where’s Solitude Aeturnus? Disbanded! As well as Sabbath – allegedly.
