TIAMAT picture
Tiamat is a metal band that formed in Täby, Sweden in 1988. Their music has been the subject of debate, utilizing subgenres like black metal, progressive, doom/death and gothic, but more recently they have focused on what has been described as atmospheric gothic metal with ethnic, psychedelic and experimental elements.

Biography: Initially, the band played straightforward black metal under the name Treblinka. After having recorded the album Sumerian Cry in 1989, vocalist/guitarist Johan Edlund and bassist Jörgen Thullberg parted ways with the other two founding members, and subsequently changed the name to Tiamat. The Sumerian Cry album, as recorded by Treblinka, was released as Tiamat's debut album in June 1990.

After the debut, Edlund's leadership would modify the band's style with influences ranging from Mercyful Fate, Candlemass, Pink Floyd and King Crimson, with Sumerian lyrical themes. German guitarist Waldemar Sorychta would produce and contribute instrumentation to many of the band's

TIAMAT Reviews

TIAMAT Clouds

Album · 1992 · Gothic Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
I'm not usually fond of the sort of death metal-derived grunt-focused approach to goth metal pioneered by the likes of Paradise Lost or My Dying Bride, but I can make an exception for Tiamat's Clouds. It took a little while to grow on me compared to Tiamat's more accessible gothic rock releases from later in their career - or, indeed, the absolutely superb Wildhoney - but grow on me it did, and I'm glad I gave it the chance to do so. Johan Edlund's vocals feel a little thin and forced here, but aside from that the band turn in a solid performance and I can recommend this to most gothic metal fans, especially those who dig Paradise Lost.

TIAMAT Wildhoney

Album · 1994 · Gothic Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Tiamat's Wildhoney finds the band still with one foot in the gothic metal arena, but also moving towards the Floydian gothic rock which would characterise subsequent releases; the followup album A Deeper Kind of Slumber, in particular, seem so to have been constructed to further explore the possibilities unlocked on this album's closing track (A Pocket Size Sun). Still, I'd rate this over most of the other Tiamat I've heard precisely because of the diversity involved in the album and the adeptness with which they fuse their old and new musical approaches into a seamless whole which flows marvellously. I'd suggest anyone new to the band should start here and then start exploring earlier albums if you prefer their metal side and their later albums if you prefer their space-goth side.

TIAMAT Prey

Album · 2003 · Gothic Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Tiamat's Prey is another album from the band's full-blooded goth rock period, with their earlier death metal sound being entirely extinguished. Occasional diversions to metal territory don't get much more metallic than, say, a fairly mild Marilyn Manson track, but the band's command of the occult-tinged gloom rock format is impressive and it's a worthwhile listen for those who dig Fields of the Nephilim and other goth bands who could go full metal if they want to but who steer in a different direction most of the time. And hey, any fan of occult rock would dig an album which closes with a seven-minute meditation on the pentagram, right?

TIAMAT A Deeper Kind of Slumber

Album · 1997 · Gothic Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
The original version of the cover art to A Deeper Kind of Slumber shows a dude holding a bunch of flowers, which ought to give you an idea of just how far the band had moved away from their metal roots at this point in time. Which isn't to say it's a bad album - just that, aside from a lonely riff here and there, it isn't a metal album. Instead, it's a mashup of gothic rock with heaps of psychedelic and progressive rock (via Pink Floyd) influences. I've heard better psych-prog gothic rock mashups - Red Temple Spirits' debut album, for instance - but Tiamat prove to be pretty good at this style, even if it isn't quite within their comfort zone.

TIAMAT Sumerian Cry

Album · 1990 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Charcaroth
Tiamat's debut, Sumerian Cry, is a solid album of primitive and arcane Swedish death metal with a subtle early black metal feel at times, and a subtle sense of experimentation.

The production is fairly standard of the metal coming from Sweden at the time, thick and crushing, but not oppressive, with that patented, grinding guitar sound popularized by bands like Entombed. Here though, there's a little more emphasis on atmosphere, giving Sumerian Cry a foggy, 'arcane' quality that works well with what the band is doing.

Although the main focus is squarely on primitive death metal brutality, there are a few interesting, subtle touches that lend Sumerian Cry a lot of character, and hint at the direction Tiamat would go in successive releases. Passages of whispered vocals, acoustic guitar melodies, then there's the odd bit in Evilized where the band breaks into some bluesy 'death n' roll' with a tinkling, tonky tonk piano-sounding melody and some vocal sampling for a moment. Even from the beginning, Tiamat seems to be a band that isn't afraid of experimenting a little, and allowing some quirkiness into the music. During the slower moments of the album, one can hear the beginnings of the doomy direction the band would soon take.
