* AbsenteeActor: Has been the case with Leif Edling for some time due to health issues. While he continues to be an active writer and also occasionally plays live shows with them, his health issues have kept him from being able to tour or do more than a few live dates per year, which is also what forced him to leave Avatarium.

* AwesomeEgo: While Messiah Marcolin's ego later got him fired, his initial chutzpah saved the band. After ''Epicus'', the band fell apart and basically wasn't even active, and Edling had completely given up on it when he received an unsolicited phone call one night by someone who informed him that he was his new singer and proceeded to sing "Solitude" ''a cappella'', and while Marcolin's dominant and controlling personality later wore out its welcome, it was ''exactly'' what they needed at the time to get back on their feet.

Added DiffLines:

* InsufferableGenius: Why Messiah Marcolin will never play with them again. While he may be an incredibly talented and iconic singer, his massive ego, diva-like behavior, and utter inability to work with anyone in a band situation have all ensured that they will never even consider bringing him on board again.

* StartMyOwn: In addition to his various side projects (namely Krux, Avatarium, and The Doomsday Kingdom), Leif Edling started Abstrakt Algebra after the 1994 breakup (and wound up repurposing most of the material that was intended for their sophomore album with ''Dactylis Glomerata''), while Marcolin started Memento Mori with members of Hexenhaus after his first split with the band.

[[caption-width:120:Candlemass - epic ''and'' depressing at the same time.]]

Candlemass is a Swedish DoomMetal band formed in 1985 by bassist Leif Edling. One of [[TropeCodifier trope codifier]]s of doom metal, and particularly of a subgenre called "epic doom metal", their first album ''Epicus Doomicus Metallicus'' is not only considered a landmark album but the textbook example of doom metal. They disbanded in 1993, but reformed four years later with a new lineup (Leif Edling being the only consistent member). A past lineup of Candlemass then reformed in 2002, before breaking up again... and reforming [[OverlyLongGag again]] in 2004.
