Added DiffLines:

* LyricalDissonance: "Samaritan" is one of the heaviest songs on ''Nightfall'' and sounds very depressing, but the lyrics are about a man who shelters and feeds a homeless man and, on his own death bed 50 years later, is taken to Heaven by angels in return.

* FourMoreMeasures: On "A Sorcerer's Pledge", Johan starts singing as soon as guitar starts, then hums for a while and starts again, this time correctly. [[WordOfGod According to Leif]], it was a soundcheck that they [[ThrowItIn kept in]].

Candlemass is a Swedish DoomMetal band formed in 1985 by bassist Leif Edling. The [[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.

* OutOfGenreExperience: "Into The Unfathomed Tower" from ''Tales of Creation'' sounds more like Music/YngwieMalmsteen than the usual doomy fare.
