Staff review by

Being a fan of Tiamat's later works and 'Sumerian Cry' being the only album I hadn't heard before it was actually a big effort to listen to it. No, it isn't a bad record. But if you know their later albums in their melodically splendour it's quite hard to listen to evil and dark death metal.

100% agreed.
And the first full length to be recorded in the infamous SUnlight studios.
