Candlemass Ancient Dreams Peaceville cd
Massively influential third album from the pioneers of epic Doom Metal. 
 
Candlemass were formed by bassist and songwriter Leif Edling in Stockholm, Sweden in 1984, well known for their epic doom metal, they have hugely influenced a generation of the genre's subsequent greats - Candlemass themselves taking a large influence from Black Sabbath.
 
Ancient Dreams was Candlemass's third album. Released in 1988, it featured a natural progression of slow-mid tempo epic arrangements from their previous release, Nightfall, with the unique tones & unmistakable voice of Messiah Marcolin still dominating proceedings on this pure Doom Metal classic.
 
With a perfect balance between melody and sheer heaviness, it is debatable as to whether this is the ultimate Candlemass & therefore the greatest doom metal album of all time, with some giving this particular title preference over the band?s seminal 'Nightfall' album.
 
Ancient Dreams was produced by Leif Edling and Candlemass in 1988, and was recorded at Stockholm Recording studios in 1988.
