Avatarium - The Fire I Long For

Avatarium are a side project of Candlemass mastermind, Leif Edling, who pretty much took a life of their own after their debut was met with a fair bit of success. The albums that followed up still featured Edling, but his involvement was more limited, due to his battle with exhaustion, after years on the road that manifested psychosomatically. He didn’t tour with the band however; in fact he didn’t even tour with Candlemass during that time.

Skyblood - Skyblood

Skyblood’s eponymous debut represents what Mats Leven (Yngwie Malmsteen, Therion, Candlemass and in general more bands than you could shake a stick at) had been doing on his own, in his downtime from recording and performing. Not only he does sing here but he also seems to be performing most of the instruments himself (with some guests that are unconfirmed at present).
