Below comments: “With ‘Upon a Pale Horse‘, we feel that we have found our sound.bWe have grown as songwriters and this album contains our fastest and slowest, shortest and longest, heaviest and most melodic songs to date. Making this album more diverse yet still staying true to the core of heavy riffs and melodies that is Below. We recorded ‘Upon a Pale Horse‘ in Deep Blue Studios, the studio where we recorded our first EP, so in some sense it felt like we were returning to our roots.”

Read on for some reviews of the critically acclaimed Upon A Pale Horse:

“The title track features mighty choirs and beats everything Candlemass released in the last 10 years. You could say the same about ‘Hours Of Darkness’, but this one could be even on one of the 80s classic albums of the Epic Doom Gods. Killer album!”Andreas Stappert, Deaf Forever Germany, 9.5 out of 10 points

“All in all a very strong proof of the talent of these Swedes, I didn’t expect such a high quality!”Boris Kaiser, Rock Hard Germany, 8.5 out of 10 points

Below are a heavy hit!”Thorsten Dietrich, Break Out Germany
