Epic doom metal band from Sweden led by bassist/songwriter Leif Edling, born out of the ashes of Edling's previous band, [a=Nemesis (13)]. The band's 1986 debut, "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus" and it's follow up, 1987's "Nightfall" are considered landmark releases by many doom metal fans. "Nightfall" saw vocalist Eddie "Messiah" Marcolin join the band. He would record 2 more studio albums with band before splitting in 1990. Candlemass continued with vocalist Thomas Vikström for one more album before splitting in 1993. Edling would revive the Candlemass banner for 2 albums in the late 1990s, both recorded with entirely new line-ups.

In 2005, the "classic" Candlemass line-up of Edling, Marcolin, drummer Jan Lindh, and gutiarists Lars Johannson and Mats Björkman reunited for a brand new, self-titled album. Relations with Marcolin broke down once again, however, as the band prepared a follow up. His replacement ended up being an American singer, Robert Lowe, from the band [a=Solitude Aeturnus].
