Robert Lowe has fronted the mighty Texas doom metal legends Solitude Aeturnus since the early 90’s and gained a respectable status as one of the greatest metal vocalists. Back in 2007 when the Swedish doom metal giant Candlemass were struggling with a vocalist problem again, looking for a suitable vocalist – an unexpected rescue came from the other side of the world. When Robert Lowe teamed up with Candlemass, he had a big task to convince old Candlemass fans. The second album with Robert Lowe as a frontman of Candlemass entitled “Death Magic Doom” is an perfect masterpiece in the doom metal genre. Before Candlemass took to the stage, I had the great opportunity of talking about Solitude Aeturnus and Candlemass. (The interview was conducted during the Tuska festival time).
