Candlemass - Nightfall mp3 flac

Nightfall is the second studio album by the Swedish doom metal band Candlemass, released on 9 November 1987 through Axis Records. After being dropped from the label Black Dragon Records, Candlemass were the first band signed to Axis. The group had a new line-up from their previous album including vocalist Messiah Marcolin, whose decisions became instrumental during the production and release stages of the album.

Nightfall ‎(Cass, Album). Metal Mind Productions. Nightfall ‎(LP, Album, Pic, Unofficial).

Candlemass - Nightfall. The original title for the album was Gothic Stone, but Marcolin rejected Edling's idea and conviced the band to use the title Nightfall instead. Marcolin is also responsible for the choice of the cover of the album, which is the "Old Age" portion of the series of paintings called The Voyage of Life (1842) by Thomas Cole. The Well of Souls" is inspired by the Well of the Souls, a secret chamber located inside the ancient city of Tanis, appearing in the 1981 Indiana Jones movie Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Candlemass are widely accepted as one of, if not the, first of their kind to play modern doom metal. While Candlemass didn't spontaneously create doom metal (as Black Sabbath and Pentagram have influenced the genre) they did impact it greatly with the release of their 1986 debut, Epicus Doomicus Metallicus, an album which showcased their epic sound, thus crowning them the founders of the epic doom genre.

Yellow Judge
I don't think any of these Active Records pressings were issued before 1988. As far as I know, the label was called Axis Records until 1988 and then changed to Active Records. Axis Records was still releasing albums in 1988, therefore Active Records would not have existed in 1987.
That should be a forum thread or even in the history not the review section, more people will see it in there too =]
