"Nightfall", the classic 1987 album from Swedish doom legends CANDLEMASS, will be reissued by Peaceville Records on September 20. This special vinyl edition of "Nightfall" features new liner notes from bassist/songwriter Leif Edling. It is limited to just 2,000 numbered copies and comes presented on heavyweight (180-gram) gold-colored vinyl with gatefold sleeve.
"Nightfall" is often regarded as the definitive CANDLEMASS album, and the pinnacle of the epic doom scene.
Joining Edling on "Nightfall" was vocalist Jan Alfredo Marcolin, better known as Messiah Marcolin, who became a well-established and highly regarded vocalist throughout the metal world, with his unusual and theatrical tones.
Messiah Marcolin became an iconic figure in the band until the early 1990s when he decided to leave CANDLEMASS due to a variety of infamous disputes.
"Nightfall" is a continuation of the band’s debut; more epic and melodic heavy doom, though the band were also not afraid to vary tempo on occasions, integrating faster elements to the compositions giving a more dynamic feel. The LP truly helped define the genre and paved the way for doom metal's future, with the album featuring in members of MY DYING BRIDE's top releases of all time.
