Band Name Candlemass. Album Name Tales of Creation. 版公司 Music For Nations Powerline Records. When you start this album, you will be met by 'The Prophecy', some kind of intro, but it already expresses many emotions of the album and it lets listeners know what is waiting for them. Here is used the last riff from last track, 'A Tale Of Creation', so it seems that this album starts with this riff and ends with it, so in other words, this is a circle album. Then comes the powerful song 'Dark Reflections'. It isn't remarkable by melodiousness, but the vocal parts are epic and 'doom sounding'. Erscheinungsdatum 25 September 1989. Labels Music For Nations Powerline Records. Musik GenreDoom Metal. Mitglieder die dieses Album besitzen174. Re-Issue in 2001 by Powerline Records.

Candlemass Tales of Creation "Under the Oak" is a re-recording of a song that originally appeared on "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus" (and also the "Tales of Creation" demo -see bonus reissue disc). Leif Edling originally wanted another Thomas Cole painting for the cover, but his bandmates "talked him out of it". A modified Gustave Doré work called 'The Creation of Light' was used instead. Recording information: Recorded at Stockholm Recording, June, July 1989. Co-produced by Candlemass.

Tales of Creation might have to be the best this band has to offer by far, if not Epicus of course. This album differs slightly from Nightfall and Ancient Dreams, and even more so than their debut. Their slow and drone formula for Epicus has been essential obliterated, and traded up for a more fast-paced feel. At the start of the album you can see how Candlemass has already taken their first steps into this faster-paced recording. Aside from the gloomy intro, The Prophecy will explode in your face and echoed speech will be heard in the background before picking up the pace yet again. Not more than two minutes into the album and Candlemass have already managed to swoon the listener, and this is before we get a good look at Messiah Marcolin vocals.
