Candlemass founder/bassist Leif Edling has been quoted as boasting that Death Magic Doom is "the best album we have recorded since Nightfall." Edling definitely exaggerates; this 2009 release isn't their best album since that 1987 classic. But Death Magic Doom is excellent nonetheless, and it could easily go down in history as one of the finest metal releases of 2009 -- regardless of the absence of Messiah Marcolin. Some longtime Candlemass fans have a hard time believing that the influential doom metal band can excel without Marcolin on lead vocals, but truth be told, other lead singers have also served Candlemass well along the way (including Johan Längqvist in the beginning, Tomas Vikström in the early '90s, and Björn Flodkvist in the late '90s/early 2000s). And on Death Magic Doom, Robert Lowe (of Solitude Aeternus fame) has no problem rising to the occasion. A powerhouse of a singer, Lowe brings an appealing, somewhat Ronnie James Dio-ish quality to darkly melodic, Black Sabbath-influenced gems such as "Hammer of Doom," "Clouds of Dementia," "The Bleeding Baroness," and "Demon of the Deep." Lowe really goes that extra mile -- and between the impressively consistent songwriting and Lowe's inspired vocals, Death Magic Doom is clearly a winner. Nonetheless, some of Marcolin's admirers will refuse to listen to this 47-minute CD because of his absence and will wish that his reunion with Candlemass had worked out; that is to be expected. But Lowe's performances are nothing to complain about -- and even though Death Magic Doom isn't Candlemass' best album in 22 years as Edling has claimed, it is nonetheless an exciting addition to their catalog.

In your panoramas...
Curtis Mayfield, in a League of his Own

Aesthete guitar player worshiped by Jimi Hendrix, extraordinary falsetto singer revered by Prince, and a brilliant songwriter, Curtis Mayfield treated melodies as a master sculptor. His songs melded funk, gospel and soul together. Twenty years after his death, his politically charged music is still relevant and well-suited to describe America under Donald Trump.

10 Legends of the Blues

June 21 marked 20 years since the death of a king of the blues: John Lee Hooker. But the blues didn't follow this giant into the grave. This genre, which has been being recorded for over a century, is still nourishing pop music of all kinds and producing great records (like the latest release from The Black Keys). It's time to take a look back at the classics with ten historic blues musicians.

The White Album: The Beatles' Immaculate Conception
