Candlemass – Death Thy Lover EP (Album Review)

I am pretty familiar with the great Candlemass album 2009’s Death Magic Doom and part of this was the fantastic vocals of Robert Lowe.  Having lost touch with Swedish doomsters after this record, I was unaware that they now have singer Mats Levén on board… I was expecting more epic sounding doom from the band, with exceptional vocals, but no, this EP hits below such watermark releases, with the vocals of Levén a real disappointment. …
