Johan Längquist

Johan Längquist

Real/full name:
Johan Längquist
56 (born Aug 23rd, 1963)
Place of origin:
Sweden (Järfälla)


Johan Längqvist was the session vocalist on Swedish doom metal band Candlemass' debut album, "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus", but had no intention to join as a full member.

He eventually auditioned to join them after his successor, Messiah Marcolin, left, but the job ultimately went to Thomas Vikström.

Several more years later, Johan would frequently join Candlemass on stage, to perform ...


Unlike his successor Messiah Marcolin, Längqvist was a baritone, which meant he had a lower pitched voice and therefore sang the songs in a lower vocal range than Marcolin.

Before taking part in the recording of "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus", Längqvist was the singer in short-lived Swedish heavy metal band Jonah Quizz.

Impulsia also feature Marcus Jidell and Robin Beck.
