Sweden’s Candlemass is celebrating 30 years since the release of their debut LP by issuing a 23-minute, 4-track EP entitled Death Thy Lover. Although perhaps the most influential Epic Doom Metal band of all time, Candlemass has (barely) weathered a number of set-backs, including the departure of their incredibly recognizable vocalist Messiah Marcolin. But, life must go on — now with Mats Leven behind the microphone. Leven performs well, however, the hand-in-glove feel between music and voice is no longer present. Still, the tracks within Death Thy Lover offer plenty; providing hope for Candlemass’ future in their otherwise doomy abyss.

Songs from this new release will be featured at 6:00/18:00 CET & Midnight/Noon EST on the day indicated. All featured DAILY ALBUM PREMIERES will have a short review posted the day it’s on the show!

The FRIDAY edition of the Daily Album Premiere show contains 3 tracks from each of the Daily Premiere Albums featured during the week. Be sure to tune in here!

Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
