Mikael Åkerfeldt joins Candlemass on stage to sing At The Gallows End at the 20 Year Anniversary Party in Stockholm.

For this very special release, Sweden’s Candlemass perform at a recent show filmed in Kolingsborg in their home country, as a celebration of 20 years of the band’s doomination of the metal world.

This set features guest appearances from members of acts such as Therion & Grand Magus, also including Michael Akerfeldt from Opeth who joins the band onstage for a storming rendition of ‘At the Gallows End’; all contributing to a set-list spanning the band’s career to date.

The show was used as a live unveiling of new member Robert Lowe (from Solitude Aeturnus) - replacement for departing vocalist Messiah Marcolin. Fans flew in from all over Europe, even as far as Australia to catch this momentous occasion for a night of melodic/heavy doom metal.

The band has enjoyed a recent resurgence with outstanding media feedback to new album ‘King of the Grey Islands’. Candlemass has built a very long and prosperous career since their classic album, 1986’s ‘Epicus Doomicus Metallicus’ and are cited as great influences on current leaders of the doom metal genre such as Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride.
The DVD includes band interviews and a whole load of additional footage, coming in at over 3 hours of top doom metal from this most celebrated of acts.

Opeth is a Swedish death metal band from Stockholm, formed in 1990. While the band has been through several personnel changes, singer, guitarist, and songwriter Mikael Åkerfeldt has remained Opeth's driving force since joining promptly after its inception.
While firmly rooted in Scandinavian death metal, Opeth has consistently incorporated influence by progressive music, folk, blues rock and jazz into their usually-lengthy compositions. Many compositions include acoustic guitar interludes and strong dynamic shifts, as well as both growling and clean vocals.

Opeth was originally formed as a death metal band in the autumn of 1990 in Stockholm, Sweden by vocalist David Isberg. Isberg asked former Eruption band member Mikael Åkerfeldt to join the band as a bassist. When Åkerfeldt showed up to practice the day after Isberg invited him, it became clear that Isberg had not told the band members, including the band's current bassist, that Åkerfeldt would be joining. The ensuing argument led to all members but Isberg and Åkerfeldt leaving to form a new project. The band name was derived from the word "Opet", taken from the Wilbur Smith novel The Sunbird. In this novel, Opet is the name of a (fictional) Phoenician city in South Africa whose name is translated as "City of the Moon" in the book; the name might be a reference to Opet Festival or the Egyptian goddess Taweret, also known as Opet.
