Your weekly metal history lesson continues its ongoing Metal Creator series, with a look at two massive European metal titans. First, aggressive German thrash metal masters Kreator burst through the satellite, storming with precise menace and a Kreator cover by Napalm Death. Next we travel to Stockholm, Sweden, to soak in three decades of greatness by epic doom metal lords Candlemass, including a stirring rendition of the anthem “Solitude” by Texas newcomers Oceans of Slumber. Know your metal creators—know your Roots!

Read and bleed the history of heavy metal at maximum volume with SOUND OF THE BEAST.

  1. This was great. Shamefully, that’s the first I’ve ever heard of Candlemass! I really liked them. What’s a good start for a beginner? I’d like to check out 4 or 5 albums, but which are the best?

    • If you liked Candlemass, you should also check out Sorcerer, Below, The Doomsday Kingdom & Sinister Realm. They all play Epic Doom like Candlemass.
