Candlemass - Tales of Creation (1989)



When I think of doom metal, I think of bands like Pentagram, Saint Vitus, Trouble, and of course the Swedish gods....Candlemass!! This album is so full of misery and darkness it just makes you depressed!! So much agony in Messiah's voice through out the songs. A very haunting release!! Last album to feature (and last album I gave a shit about until 2005's self titled album) vocalist Messiah Marcolin.

Line Up:

Messiah Marcolin: Vocals
Leif Edling: Bass
Mats "Mappe" Björkman: Guitars
Lars "Lasse" Johansson: Guitars
Jan Lindh: Drums

Tracks to Check Out:


"The Edge of Heaven"
"Dark Reflections"

Malevolent Creation - Stillborn (1993)



This album recieved horrible reviews due to the very poor production. The band originally wanted to go back and have the album re-mastered but due to Roadrunner's greed, they wouldn't pay for it. The songs however, I think are very well written and if the production wasn't so poor, this would be considered one of their best releases.

Line Up:

Brett Hoffmann: Vocals
Phil Fasciana: Guitars
Jon Rubin: Guitars
Jason Blachowicz: Bass
Alex Marquez: Drums

Tracks to Check Out:

"Disciple of Abhorrence"
"Ordain the Hierarchy"
"Ethnic Cleansing"
"Dominion of Terror"

Onslaught - In Search of Sanity (1989)



While it's a great record, it's nowhere as great as "Power From Hell" and "The Force" were. Not as much brutality and evil on this album. The album was originally recorded with Sy Keeler on vocals, but the label wanted more commercial success so they made the band re-record it with Steve Grimmett (Grim Reaper) on vocals. If this album was released by a different band, it would of became a classic, but I guess Onslaught fans knew what they wanted, and this wasn't it.

Line Up:

Steve Grimmett: Vocals
Nige Rockett: Guitars
Rob Trotman: Guitars
James Hinder: Bass
Steve Grice: Drums

Tracks to Check Out:

"Welcome to Dying"
"Shellshock"
"In Search of Sanity"
"Lightning War"

Dino Cazares: Guitars / Bass
Raymond Herrera: Drums

*Although Christian Olde Wolbers is credited on bass, he joined the band after the album was recorded. All Bass on the album was played by Dino Cazares.*

Root - The Book (1999)



I don't think there is any other black metal band quite like Root. Where most black metal bands feature very high pitched screeching vocals, Root features operatic vocals which somehow fit very well!! Super Satanic stuff (as Big Boss founded the first Church of Satan in Czech Republic.

Line Up:

Big Boss: Vocals
Ashok: Guitars
Petr "Blackie" Hošek: Guitars
Alesh Dostál: Bass
Evil: Drums

Tracks to Check Out:

"The Mystical Words of the Wise"
"The Message of the Time"
"Remember Me!"
"The Book"
