    Don you be crazy mad. Why? People like easy music. Always have, always will. The reality is you, and many of us, prefer non popular subsets of music. We are a minority. Same for tv and movies; Hollywood does not make movies for Pirate Eater.

    Ha, was going to recommend Solitude Aeuturnus as well but forgot! Yes, it's great and that's where I believe Rob Lowe ultimately belongs to. I was really excited when they announced him as the replacement for Messiah, but as great of a vocalist he is, after a while I was convinced that he just wasn't the right man for Candlemass.

    He also did not work well in live setting, the last time I saw them they were clearly frustrated to work together as he still kept forgetting lyrics etc and had to read them occasionally from a paper. I think that ended up being the reason they ended up sacking him.

    Mats Leven from Krux, Therion etc is doing the vocals now.

    Im with you on this. Although my taste is much different from the stuff you guys are referencing, i like being able to find my gems in music and cinema and keep it at that. But i understand your frustration at how so many people over the years miss out on alot of great music because of how things are pushed/promoted and how some things are not.

    I don't know where I came up with this. I might have read some youtube comments or read it on another forum. I know I was looking up some more music by them. I responded here instead of where I should have.

    I love Lowe's voice, and I think Death Magic Doom is a great album. Not a great live performer, though, for sure. He looks like they dragged the sound guy on stage to perform ... but his singing is stellar. After watching him live (on DVD) I feel like I want to write a doom metal comedy starring Danny McBride.
