Nah, metal "purists" like Messiah. People with taste like Lowe.

Both are good, but Lowe is 389479282943x the vocalist that Messiah will ever be.

Thats all well and good, but Johan Langvist is better than both in Candlemass. :fawk:

I think Lowe is overall the best vocalist though, and I like SA better than Candlemass on the whole, but he's not as good a fit for Candlemass as Messiah was.

My favorite is Thomas Vikstrom:


However, "Epicus..." is still my favorite album of theirs, and Langvist sounds great on it.

Tough Lowe for sure is the "best" of all CM vocalists, Langvist just "fits" better than Messiah and Lowe.

Looks like I'm in the minority actually, but as far as Candlemass vocalist's go, Messiah to me is way, way better than Langvist, Vikstrom or Lowe .....& Nightfall is the best Candlemass album by far ..followed by Tales Of Creation, Ancient Dreams & the S/T ..in that order.

...I even prefer the Memento Mori albums (w/Messiah) to all the other Candlemass ones...thanks to Messiah's awesome pipes of DOOM!
