Avatarium – The Fire I Long For

For each album, Avatarium has moved further and further away from being Candlemass founder Leif Edling’s side project. Truth be told, Avatarium was a real band already by second album The Girl With The Raven Mask (2015) and today, Avatarium has turned more into guitarist Marcus Jidell’s baby with him holding both production and song-writing duties, even though Edling still chips on the latter department. Jidell is also the one of the reasons I decided to check Avatarium out that day back in 2013. Not being much of a neither Doom Metal nor Candlemass fan, I found it interesting that Edling had found a female vocalist for his new band and since I have always been a fan of Jidell’s emotional, bluesy and soulful playing, I thought that Avatarium’s self-titled debut might have something different to offer – and boy, it sure did.
