Candlemass is a Swedish seminal Doom metal band established in the 1980s by Leif Edling (bass), its leader and songwriter. The band is originally from Stockholm.
After Leif Edling dissolved the band Nemesis, he started his own band under the name Candlemass (a possibly deliberate misspelling of Candlemas). The first Candlemass album was Epicus Doomicus Metallicus, released in 1986 and now considered a milestone in the Doom metal scene. Read more on Last.fm

For all you doom lovers, there’s a very cool 3 disc edition of NIGHTFALL coming your way soon!
Not only the legendary album, but also a whole cd full of outtakes from the mix of the album.
Versions of such songs as “Bewitched” “Well of Souls” and “At the Gallows End” as you never heard them before. The third disc is a rehearsal a week or so before the recording. Not super sounding, but very intense, and shows a band burning for metal, determined to success! if you’re a true fan of Candlemass, you’ll love this expanded version of a true classic doom metal record!!
HELLO DOOM LOVERS!!
I'm very sad to tell you that I can't participate in Candlemass performance at Sweden Rock this weekend. It would have been absolutely fantastic to celebrate 30 years of NIGHTFALL with my old mates in C-mass!
I'm now much better from a long fatigue syndrome illness, so a couple of weeks ago I ended a two year medication of strong anti-depressives. It has been a lot harder than I thought with nausea, vomiting, dizziness headaches, sleeplessness, shakes, bad rashes as the result.
I'm so sorry about this. Would have been the highlight of the whole summer for me to be
back playing this great album with my friends in the band + all of you wonderful fans of Doom!
But sometimes things don't work out as planned. This time that is sooo true! Per Wiberg will help out as he so skillfully has done for some time, while I will rest for a little
bit more until the drugs finally will be out of my system.
Meanwhile i'm sure Candlemass will KILL at Sweden Rock! Don't miss it!!! (but I miss you..)
