The legendary Swedish band Candlemass was formed by bassist and songwriter Leif Elfding and drummer Matz Ekström, who also played together in a band called Nemesis. Candlemass is seen as one of the pioneers of the doom metal genre and have kept a leading position in the scene ever since. The Swedish musicians took several breaks from Candlemass throughout the years but always found their way back to their passion for playing epic doom metal.
The band celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2015 and since then vocalist Mats Levén has joined the Doom Metal Squad as a permanent member. The discography of Candlemass features more than one genre classic such as highly acclaimed records Epicus Doomicus Metallicus (1986) and its successor Nightfall (1987).
