Music of the Abstract: Solitude by Candlemass

The start of Halloween and beginning with of one of the origins of Doom Metal, in a song which has captivated me and shows what a Heavy Metal song should be. Not only are the lyrics evocative but this is heavy without need of death grunts, sung with clear vocals by Johan Längqvist, and being extreme not in noise and chaotic guitar parts, but by going back to the originators of Heavy Metal, Black Sabbath, and making their riffs even deeper and sluggish. Finally hearing a song by Candlemass was quite a revelation.
