Always vying with Solitude Aeturnus for tutle of my favorite Doom band.

I recently discovered this:




Which took me completely by surprise, as I'm a massive Tony Martin-era Sabbath fan & had no clue in **** this even happened.

Yes, found them! ;)

To be honest, I only know the album Nightfall for a little while, but for the moment I like Gothic Stone/Well of Sounds so much -and I didn't know a better nickname + avatar either- that I thought: why not choose the introtrack as nickname ('cause WOS would have been a little too long I think either)?



I know this band for years, but never listened to them because I didn't like the vocalist of the first album -and liking a vocalist for me is very important to like the whole band actually- and didn't try another album. But last month, after some other doom metal album ended on Youtube, the next video started automatically and so it was this album. I first didn't even know it was another vocalist -thought that I might didn't give enough chances then-, but later read it somewhere. This Messiah Marcolin has a really great voice!

I think I should try their other albums -and especially the ones with Rob Lowe's vocals-!

First and foremost you should explore the albums with Messiah Marcolin, meaning the first four and the self-titled reunion album with Messiah from 2005. Start with "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus" and/or "Nightfall".

The rest is excellent too. Candlemass has been consistently great as far as I'm concerned, but again, the most essential stuff is with Messiah.

I'm not a metal fan, but I love this band. I good friend of mine introduced me to this band when "Nightfall" first came out,....they pretty much had me with Gothic Stone/Well of Souls,....great stuff! I liked this band so much, my freind gave me the cassette tape he had of them (Nightfall).
