his album still stands as Cannibal’s most experimental and
interesting work to date, at least in my humble opinion.
Of course we loved it at the time, but it didn’t sell and we
thought the metal people didn’t approve of it so we felt kinda bad about
it. Being dropped and everything. So, we thought we should show the
world with “Nightfall”, and we did!
“Way too many big
headed concept albums are released in the field of heavy metal.”
We just wanted to make a record and
didn’t think further than that. It was also close that we had to disband
shortly after because it didn’t sell.
Considered Candlemass’ finest effort by many.
If this album is not a classic, I don’t know what fucken is.
The last of the 4 classic Candlemass albums.
More old school shit! And, more importantly: more Bolt Thrower!
If this were a movie, I’d call it a “genre film”.
“…for Victory” showcases a matured band that has evolved naturally,
has found its perfect sound and produced a milestone of epic death metal
in the process. Although it probably served as an inspiration to many
bands, this album stands unmatched until today.
