I just treated myself to the new double DVD of these swedish doom metal heroes.

A whole live gig on one disc plus another disc full of funny footage spanning the time from their first gig in 1987 to their recent comeback at the mean fiddler. Classic.


This doesn't mean anything to anybody does it?:nervous:

I'm sorry to admit it does to me. :D I remember going to see them at the Old Marquee years and years ago. I'm not sure how good news this is for you because my musical taste at the time involved bands like IQ and Pendragon - something that Laz and Scabby have both got quite sniffy about in the past. :D

IN fact I was listening to the Well of Soals only yesterday.

Happy days...

Woooooohooooooooo! A fellow fan. I was singing "the Demon's Gate" to myself yesterday.
Still reckon that The bells of Akeron, is one of their finest.

I always mix up Candlemass with Hammerfall. And on a bad day Entombed.

Is that good or bad?

I like the wells of souls best.

I'm still not persuaded that sharing musical taste with me is necessarily good for your street cred... (:eek:)

I remember watching them live years and years ago with IoT. God I'm getting old. :(

Are they like the Swede version of Gwar or something?
"Music to play Dungeons and Dragons to"?

Yeah. Only they are deadly serious.

Yes indeed. However I listened to some GWAR t'other day and was extremely dissapointed. They are a joke (HARR HARR), Candlemass are much better.

I see that kind of music as terribly amusing si I prefer it if it's intentional. I'd rather listen to Spinal Tap than Iron Maiden for instance.

You sound surprised?
