Candlemass - Lucifer Rising (CD)

Lucifer Rising
by Yiannis Zervos at 29 September 2008, 5:37 PM

The ultimate Doom Metal supergroup strikes back. Enforced by Texan vocal god Robert Lowe (SOLITUDE AETURNUS, CONCEPT OF GOD) since the last album King Of The Grey Islands, songwriting genius Leif Edling and his Swedish Doom gang return with their latest treasure chest filled with gems of depression and slow-motion hymns. Lucifer Rising truly rings the bells of hope and faith for all Epic Doom gourmets out there.
Two brand new songs; Lucifer Rising (a fast Heavy Metal epic, inspired by the darkest suffering souls) and the desperate White God (with the signature Doom CANDLEMASS style), along with a re-recorded version of Demons Gate and 9 live songs taken from the band's last show in Athens, Greece is what this 70 minute EP has to offer.

I cannot be objective about this live recording, because I was a part of all these Doom mass of people, that screamed through out the songs, covering up Robert Lowe's voice, but I 'm sure that you will enjoy and suffer by listening all these classic songs like Mirror Mirror, Samarithan, Gallows End, Solitude this way. Lowe's voice is indeed lower than Messiah's, which makes these already heavy/dark songs even heavier and darker.

Lucifer Rising EP is the perfect soundtrack for this sad and sorrowful winter that is coming upon us. Doom on!
