Synopsis

Album Description
2008 deluxe two CD edition of Tales of Creation from the Swedish Doom Metallers contains a bonus CD featuring previously unreleased demo recordings and the video for 'Dark Reflections'. Tales of Creation was Candlemass' fourth album and was originally released in 1989. The album was produced by Mats Lindfors and Candlemass and was recorded at Stockholm Recording studios. This release sees Messiah Marcolin (handling vocal duties for the final time on a Candlemass album), alongside composer and long-standing member Leif Edling, creating a stunning soundscape of epic atmosphere and melodic passages - a continued progression from these undisputed pioneers of the scene. Peaceville.

CD Reviews

Never a better mood bender
R. DOYLE | Levittown, PA. | 10/01/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Whether it's Pink Floyd for the Mello, Rage Against the Machine for the Angery, there is no better band to mother your mood, than Candlemass. I personally prefer those Candlemass releases fronted by Messiah Marcolin. His operatic bellowing of Candlemass' Doom-style lyrics, accompanied by heart pounding, soul tearing guitar riffs draw you in to a place you've never been, yet crave to stay. Trust someone who listens to everything from Bethoven to Slayer, this is a TRUE musical experience!"
Probably THE best album of the group...
M. Garland | AL, USA | 01/06/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album does the best job of portraying a story. The songs flow into a continuous tale that incorporates intermission-style commentary with kick-ass metal and one of the best instrumentals I've ever heard (Into The Unfathomed Tower). Check out their other albums, too, and try Wrathchild America's Climbin' The Walls and some Cirith Ungol if you dare..."
A Melodic Metal Masterpiece
MusicFreak | FL | 12/09/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Candlemass has absolutely created a beautiful, powerful, emotional and brilliant work with "Tales of Creation." From the majestic intro that segues like a great movie sequence into the first song, to the very last sound, you are in for an exquisite Metal ride. The guitars are simply amazing - melodic and powerful, with exquisitely constructed solos. And, of course, Messiah Marcolin's voice is a touch of gold that elevates these works to heavenly heights. If you like your Metal melodic, yet powerful, with soaring operatic vocals, this is absolutely for you."
