Happy Wednesday Metalheads! Hope you’re having a great week so far. Today we’re taking a trip back to 1987 to the second album by Candlemass called “Nightfall” for the track “Bewitched.” This was the first Candlemass album to feature vocalist Messiah Marcolin and is considered one of their best selling albums to date.

The lineup for “Nightfall” includes: Leif Edling – bass, Messiah Marcolin – vocals, Mats Bjorkman and Mike Wead guitars and Jan Lindh – drums.  The cover art of the album is a portrait made by Thomas Cole, the last in his “The Voyage of Life ” series entitled “Old Age.”

The video for “Bewitched” features vocalist Per Yngve Ohlin otherwise known as ‘Dead’ from the Norweigan Black Metal band, Mayhem, who sadly ended up committing suicide in 1991 at age 22. The “Bewitched” video directed by former Bathory drummer Jonas Akerlund helped to propel the band to international status and the album sold over a million copies worldwide.

Check out the song and video below and Messiah’s Doom Mosh!
