Staff review by

The sound pathways that Tiamat chose to walk with "A Deeper Kind of Slumber" is a beautiful marriage of gothic and psychedelic rock influences. Keeping the emotional charge and a bit of the sound of gothic rock (even on the cover of the album Johan Edlund reminds of the well-known picture of Rozz Williams, former of the legendary death rock band Christian Death, holding withering flowers) enriching it with many psychedelic rock influences and ideas Tiamat create a dreamy atmospheric album. Deeply emotional and utterly filled with inspiration, "A Deeper Kind Of Slumber" won't let you down but for sure will accompany you through many sleepless nights with its serene esoteric atmosphere.

Rating: 8 This is a great album. I can't say I like all the songs equally but overall it's a highly enjoyable feel-good album due to the incredible atmosphere.
