RockmusicRaider Review Tiamat Scarred People - Album CoverYou know what? The Swedish band Tiamat‘s 2012 album ‘The Scarred People’ sounds like ‘Moonspell‘ on a sunny day – minus the evil menace the latter exude throughout their productions. I know – the ‘Moonspell’ line was already present on the Wildhoney review, but what can I do? You could also argue that it is some weird mixture of ‘Type O Negative’ and ‘The Sisters of Mercy’.

The stylish turncoat attitude is very prevalent with Tiamat – actually an attitude to be applauded; they clearly do not want to be put into silos and I like that. What a difference from The Scarred People to Sumerian Cry or their masterpiece Wildhoney – whereas the latter is more similar to what we get to hear now.Got hooked?

RockmusicRaider Review Tiamat Wildhoney - Album CoverIs it good or bad to be reminded right away of another band, when starting on a review of one? ‘Wildhoney’ of the Swedish gig Tiamat does exactly that to you and the album resembles in style to what we get to hear from bands like Moonspell and of Pink Floyd – yes, the one and only; no fucking kidding. But even if this is so, it means that Tiamat display vision, creativity and courage to go to places where no others were before in this record, taking inspiration from other work (in this case Pink Floyd). Unfortunately there is a lot LSD induced shit they put onto this very greenwashed dish of vinyl and this will cost them one or two stars in the rating of this record.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
