Special Triple Deluxe Coloured Vinyl Set Commemorating 35 Years Of The Iconic Debut Of Masterful Doom Metal, Containing Remastered Audio, Plus Rare Pre-Epicus Recordings From 1985 Including The Legendary Witchcraft Demo. Also Includes 8 Page Booklet, A2 Poster, & Letter Print From Founder Leif Edling. Candlemass was formed by bassist and songwriter Leif Edling in Stockholm, Sweden in 1984, and is well known for its epic doom metal, having a great influence over a generation of the genre's subsequent greats - Candlemass themselves taking a large influence from Black Sabbath. 'Epicus Doomicus Metallicus' is a true genre classic, with every track a monument of timeless and finely crafted Doom. This is one of the quintessential, definitive Doom Metal releases, immortalising the band in the annals of music history & creating the foundations of a legacy spanning over thirty-five years. Going against the grain of bands at the time using speed to bolster their metal with the ongoing rise of thrash in Europe and the US, Candlemass eschewed this direction, and formed a phenomenon of their own through the latter part of the decade and beyond with their slow & spellbinding atmospherics. Epicus was recorded at Thunderload Studios in 1986 and was released later that same year, with the grand and inspiring vocals for the debut handled by Johan L ngqvist. Now, marking 35 years of the iconic debut, this deluxe triple vinyl release includes a new remastered version of the album itself, as well as a collection of Candlemass essential 1985 recordings made on the run up to the Epicus session, in the form of the Witchcraft demo plus the OAL studio recordings, & completed by the band s Upplands V sby rehearsal from November of 1985. Each vinyl is presented with its own sleeve, with the Epicus Doomicus Metallicus LP containing a layout closely reflecting the original edition, with images used on its initial pressings. The set also includes an 8 page 12 booklet with images from the era and accompanying text, plus A2 poster, as well as a handwritten letter print from founder Leif Edling.
