Tiamat/Clouds/Century media Records/1992 CD Review

Tiamat are a band from Sweden that started out os a black/thrash band then evolved into doom metal and later on gothic rock and this is a review of their 1992 album "Clouds" which was released by Century Media Records.

Drums are mostly slow beats on this album with some ocassional fast playing and the occasional blast beat, while the keyboards have a very dark and atmospheric sound, as for the bass playing it follows the riffs coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars are a mixture between slow doom riffs with some midpaced to fat riffing that has a little bit of a black metal influence mixed with Swedish death metal, while the lead guitars are melodic guitar solos, as for the accoustic guitars they bring a small amount of light with some exotic scales played on a classical guitar to the dark music that is present on this album.

Vocals are mostly Swedish style death metal vocals that are very easy to understand with some spoken word passages, while the lyrics cover depressing, esoteric, and satanic themes, as for the production on this album which was recorded and mixed at the Woodhouse Studio in Germany sounds very professional and you can hear all of the instruments that are present on this album.

In my opinion this was one of Tiamat's best albums, and if you are a fan of Tiamat you probably already have this album. Recommended Tracks Include ""In A Dream" "The Sleeping Beauty" and "The Scapegoat". RECOMMENDED BUY
