A year has passed since the release of Tiamat's debut album 'Sumerian Cry'. This year saw the departure of guitarist Stefan Lagergren and drummer Andreas Holmberg whose places were taken by Thomas Petersson and Niklas Ekstrand respectively. The band, being dissatisfied with the distribution of the first album jumped to the Century Media label. A new label, a new album. A new album, a better album? Certainly! For Tiamat has taken a big step forward by adding a fine melodies to their sound and thus making music more complex.

I should try to listen to them again. It has been like.. pff I dunno, in my first years as "metalhead" that I tried to get into them but failed and never tried again. Just recently I heard some song from Wildhoney and I went "woa".

It's been two or three years since I last listened to it. Perhaps next time I'm in Tiamat-mood I should spare myself the millionth listen of "Wildhoney" and give this album another chance.

Well Wildhoney sounds like a totally different band to this album. This is death metal with some very doomy overtones (odd since I never see it heralded in the galleries of doom death).

Early Tiamat rarely seems to get much of a look in but I certainly prefer it (as much as A Deeper Kind of Slumber anyway. I heart that release.)

Oh I know that, their debut is pretty much death as well. No biggie on that since I recall the style of those cds quite well it's just that it was too much for my younger me.

It actually does get heralded as such by a lot of doom death fans, trust me.
imo this is still Tiamat's strongest release.

That's good to hear then, it deserves the recognition.
