Candlemass - Nosturi, Helsinki, 17/01/14

The crowd teamed with long-haired, patch-jacket-wearing metalheads in the mood for Metal. Formed thirty years ago, Candlemass filled out their set with crowd favourites, new tunes and some good quality Black Sabbath covers. Relatively new singer, Mats Levén stretched his vocal chords to well known tunes, almost as absorbed in the music as the crowd. Bassist and songwriter Leif Edling took the microphone for a song, as did local guest vocalist Mikko Kotamäki (Swallow the Sun, Kuolemanlaakso)
