Guest review by

In this album Johan Edlund and Co. have taken the best bits of the Sisters Of Mercy and added some heavily distorted guitars, occasional eastern melodies, ambient electronica, a varied vocal approach and pop sensibility to create a brilliantly atmospheric and entrancing expanse of musical escapism. It is best listened to from beginning to end as it has a far greater impact when listened to as a whole. As their name suggests Tiamat have always surrounded themselves with a certain mysticism and although they touch on everyday issues on this album, that sense of mysticism is still ever present and this adds an interesting flavour to the music.
