Guest review by
Tiamat is one of those bands that start out either as necro grim pandas or savage guitar mashers, but over time, for reasons known only to them, completely abandon that style for much softer, even poppy forms of gothic rock/metal or depart even further, into genres and classifications unknown (Ulver, I'm lookin' at you here). While I'm not much of a fan of Tiamat's early works, their dabble in the fields of gothic has produced some interesting results, namely Wildhoney and A Deeper Kind of Slumber. After that, the band decided to treat us with typical goth rock with hit-or-miss albums. Judas Christ is, unfortunately, more miss than hit.

Great goth-rock album. The bonus tracks are kinda boring, but the rest of the album has lots of memorable melodies... ''Angel Holograms'', ''Heaven of high'' and ''Too Far Gone'' sound very classic. Wonder if they are some cover songs.

I Am In Love With Myself is just too good.

member of the true crusade against old school heavy metal, early 80s thrash, NWOBHM, traditional doom, first and second wave black metal, old school death metal, US power metal, 70s prog rock and atmospheric doomsludgestoner. o/

The worst album Tiamat ever done. Two decent songs can save the overall impression, but otherwise...

So Much For Suicide is one of them right?

Too commercial with some good melodies

Tiamat have made a more accessible record here which sounds decent enough even if Tiamat are capable of stronger songs. It's no 'Wildhoney' but it's not near as weak as some would have you believe.
