Candlemass, the pioneering Swedish doom metal band, has gone through a variety of lineup changes over the years, most notably with the vocalist. However, the driving force behind Candlemass's sound has always been bassist and principal songwriter Leif Edling. As long as he is present, you know what you will get from a Candlemass album: epic doom metal. Of course the most band is most known for Messiah Marcolin's powerful operatic voice, but their most famous album arguably came before Marcolin. Even now, Candlemass continues to put out great doom metal albums and is currently fronted by Solitude Aeternus singer Robert Lowe, not the actor.
