The third full-length DVD by the legendary Swedish Epic Doom Metal band.
The DVD of the year 2007! Of course you have to be a fan of Doom Metal and Candlemass to fully enjoy this release but, really, this "20 Year Anniversary Party" is a must!! Candlemass rocks and this DVD is the proof that this band is among the best of the Metal scene.
The line-up of this show was simply amazing. Except Messiah Marcollin who was not on stage this night (but we all know that his departure of the band was really chaotic…), all the other Candlemass' singers sang some of "their" during the show with in addition some guests like Mat Levens, JB and Mikael Akerfeldt (yeah that's classy!). The performance of the musicians was great and the track-list was a perfect selection of the best songs of the long discography of the Swedish combo. Nothing is missing here, all the singers (except Messiah... yes, it's sucks) were better than ever and anyway the music of Candlemass is so good that it is a pure pleasure to watch this concert!
If you like Doom or even Heavy Metal you'll love to watch this DVD and maybe that some of you will discover a new band for them through this video recording. The people who don't like or understand Doom should have a look at this DVD, they will probably have some suprises and revelations!!
With in addition some little interview between each new singers and a big special backstage footage of 50 minutes, you can be sure that this DVD doesn't lack of anything. "20 Year Anniversary Party" is the perfect DVD!
The Candlemass' "20 Year Anniversary Party" DVD is a masterpiece! This is a must for all the people who like Doom Metal and like Metal in general. Well done, with a perfect sound and with a lot of surprises, this is a great DVD and you will not have the right to miss it!! Just buy it as soon as possible or you'll miss one of the best DVD ever released!!!
