Tamerlan are a solo project from Serbia that plays a musical style he describes as being death folk and this is a review of his 2016 album "Luciferian" which was released by Casus Belli Musica.
Acoustic guitars start off the album and they give the music more of a goth rock feeling along with some melodic vocals a few seconds later and the grim whispers bring in a touch of black metal and a great amount of finger picking can be heard and when drum beats are utilized they give the songs a ritualistic feeling.
Ambient style synths can be heard at times along with some psychedelic elements and the songs also bring in a great amount of neo-folk and neo-classical influences and there is a great amount of diversity present throughout the recording and the vocals also get demonic at times and as the album progresses more traces of occult rock are added onto the recording and when spoken word parts are utilized they bring in even more of a ritualistic atmosphere and electric guitars are also used on some of the tracks and there is also a brief use of black metal screams and one song also introduces stringed instruments onto the recording.
Tamerlan plays a musical style that takes neo-classical, dark folk, psychedelic, industrial, goth, darkwave, and black metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, Occultism and Luciferian themes.
In my opinion Tamerlan is a very great sounding death folk solo project and if you are looking for something original, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Patricide" "Until Dreams Are All That's Left" and "Lucifer's Son". 8 out of 10.
