Staff review by

Many years have passed since Johan Edlund formed a band bearing the name of the Sumerian God of War, Tiamat, and throughout the years he didn't remain static to a sound but explored many and different soundscapes, releasing monumental and influencial for many bands albums, to reach nowadays with a wonderful gothic metal masterpiece, "Prey". Memories of "A Deeper Kind Of Slumber" are obvious but they are placed in the album through a gothic prism, leaving behind most of the psychedelic rock influences and choosing to walk darker paths. Johan Edlund opened the gates of inspiration and presents us an album filled with so many emotions, filled with a dreamy dark atmosphere that paces with the whole album.

  Like Tiamat´s fury and serenity, mainly earlier stuff.
