Candlemass is an epic doom metal band formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1984. Candlemass arose from the earlier Nemesis outfit belonging to bassist Leif Edling and guitarist Christian Weberyd. Prior to the dissolvement of the group, Nemesis had released the highly praised 'Day Of Retribution' album in 1984. Debuting Candlemass on the tape trading circuit with the four song 'Witchcraft' demo in 1984, featuring a line-up of Edling, Weberyd and drummer Mats Ekström, and a second demo that November, the band promptly signed to the French Black Dragon label. Having added former A.T.C. guitarist Mats Björkman (a.k.a. 'Mappe') the band began recording what would become the 'Epicus, Doomicus, Metallicus' debut at Thunderload Studios with Ragne Wahlquist, frontman for Heavy Load, manning the desk.

    I'm sitting here alone in darkness
    Waiting to be free
    Lonely and forlorn I am crying
    I long for my time to come

    Solitude  -  311,401 plays
    Deep was my anguish for these words
    They froze my blood and chained my soul
    The master had spoken, the truth, not any lies
    The devil gives and evil takes, the things in life that man forsakes
    A throne in hell, a price or a sacrifice?

    Sunrise, I greet you, the beauty of your light
    So warm and tender was never the night
    In tears I see you, the last time it will be
    So give me your blessing, I'll meet my destiny
    No rest for the sinner

    Can't you see the devil in me
    Just take a look in my eyes
    I will play for you this wicked melody
    It's magic will reach for your soul
    It burns inside, no place to hide

    Black heart, your soul is mine, mine
    Gaze into and the secrets you'll find, find, find

    Gaze into the crystal, see what it tells
    It can bring you all fortune, do you so well
