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 The Astral Sleep

Album · 1991 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"The Astral Sleep" is the 2nd full-length studio album by Swedish death/doom/goth metal act Tiamat. The album was released through Century Media Records in September 1991. Tiamat are one of the seminal Swedish death meal acts. They released their old school death metal styled debut album "Sumerian Cry" in 1990, but already on "The Astral Sleep" they began their journey towards a more goth/doom death metal oriented sound. The tracks and the playing are relatively simple and and it´s safe to say that the band focus on atmosphere far more than they focus on technically intriguing playing. The musicianship is decent and the music is as such well performed.

The music is predominantly mid-paced, but there are both doomy parts and a few faster paced parts featured on the album too. While "The Astral Sleep" are often given a death metal label, it´s actually not a very brutal sounding album and you´ll hear influences from other music styles like goth, doom, and thrash metal. The vocals are semi-growling and intelligible. Celtic Frost is a pretty valid reference because of the combination of various stylistic elements. In addition to heavy doomy riffing, and thrash oriented death metal riffing, the music also features acoustic sections and atmospheric keyboards. The latter two elements work as features that spice up the band´s sound and Tiamat are successful in doing that (examples are tracks like "Mountain of Doom" and "On Golden Wings", which both benefit from that). And it´s needed too, because the bass, drums, and guitar basis of the music, aren´t that interesting. The same can be said about the vocals, which lack power and conviction.

The material generally aren´t that interesting, and when you combine that with the fact that the sound production lacks in the power department (the drums sound disjointed from the rest of the instruments), "The Astral Sleep" does sound a bit flat and the mediocre/standard label wouldn´t be all wrong as a description of the recording quality and the musicianship, or on how interesting the material generally are.

The album isn´t bad as such, but my attention begins to wander after a couple of tracks, because of the lack of power and energy in the music. The atmosphere that the band create isn´t that compelling either, except for the most atmospheric sections, which generally work pretty well. And atmosphere is something that they would excel in just a few years down the line. On "The Astral Sleep" you can hear traces of that, but when the core sound of the album is a tame version of doom/death/goth metal I can´t give more than a 3 star (60%) rating.

TIAMAT Clouds

Album · 1992 · Death-Doom 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

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 wanted to but who steer in a different direction most of the time, though at the same time it doesn't really offer anything particularly novel or surprising or groundbreaking which fans of this style of gothic music wouldn't have heard before from a dozen different releases. Still, 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

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, the main downfall of the album is that it feels a bit too calculating a ripoff of the Sisters of Mercy or Fields of the Nephilim; if you have the better releases by those groups, this will feel rather inessential.
