Candlemass – Tales Of Creation (1989)

May 20, 2024

Messiah is here for the final album in his original classic run, Tales Of Creation. It’s not the strongest of the earliest albums by the band, but still has a slew of decent tracks, my absolute favourite being “Into The Unfathomed Tower”. However, with the inclusion of a re-recorded song from Epicus… as well as a lot of these songs being worked from early demos, one can’t help but escape the feeling that Tales… is a step backwards, or at least to the side, rather than forwards. You can do no wrong by enjoying this album, but it is easily the weakest of the original run of Messiah-fronted records.
