Epic doom indeed!
Jason P. Sorens | Tonawanda, NY United States | 09/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Somber, castleblack, slow-paced metal that essentially created a new genre: doom metal. Candlemass were influenced by early Black Sabbath and possibly by Trouble as well, but they went beyond them in forging frosty, epic melodies that transcend mere plodding groove. "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus" includes several all-time Candlemass favorites, including the suicidal "Solitude," the magisterial "Black Stone Wielder," the first version of "Under the Oak," and the haunting "A Sorcerer's Pledge," with an airy female chorus at the end. While Messiah Marcolin is generally regarded as Candlemass' "classic" vocalist, session vocalist Johan Lanquist is no slouch, with a generally deep baritone voice that occasionally erupts in tormented screams."
Music to Get Depressed By

"This release can be summed up in one word : DOOM ! Don't expect songs about the beauty of trees or the temptations of women in short skirts, this is heavy duty metal. Candlemass continued to release good CDs, but everything else they've done pales in comparison to this disc. Prepare to hear powerful doom metal, when you need a little "Solitude.""

"I can sum this album up in one word: GREAT! Highly recommended, especially if you are planning on commiting suicide! Best doom metal ever on earth!Although one song borders on silly lyrically, the good songs on this album MORE than make up for "Crystal Ball". "Solitude" is a MUST HEAR, and so is "A Sorcerer's Pledge". "Black Stone Weilder" tells a story and has some really awesome music with it. These guys were super talented, too bad they couldn't keep it together, once this singer left, they began to suck."
