Edlund's vocals are also some of his best yet, his deep baritone melding into these songs better than ever a far cry from the gruff approach he took on 'Amanathes' - in fact, I thought maybe his voice had given out on that album, yet I'm glad to report that is not the Bonus Track) - Tiamat - The Scarred People (Vinyl Elsewhere, it's a slightly lighter take on the dark gothic metal of their past, and one of the most satisfying of their many great albums. I just wish that more folks in the U.
Tiamat continuously evolve with every album! Johan is an amazing musician which I've follwed since therevery first album. Can't wait for the next album! Unlike many, I'm a fairly recent fan, really exploring all Tiamat has to offer around the time Amanethes came out four years ago. For me, Prey and Amanethes are my favorites and this release doesn't exceed those massive gems, but certainly keeps to that level.
Note I miss in this release female vocals, which is definitely lacking. My favorites from Prey were "Divided" and "Carry your cross" so that should give an idea. Another comment is to let this grow on you. At first listen only two songs really struck me, but after repeated listens, I've become addicted to nearly all of them. My view is 4. If you've loved anything from Wildhoney on, this shouldn't disappoint. The scarred people will bring you back to the classic wildhoney and deeper kind of slumber tiamat era.
Every track on the scarred people are as close to music perfection as you can get. Hell, I can't really sugar coat this. Either you like a band like Tiamat or you don't.
If you like this kind of music then it is a five star must. If you yearn for the old days of growling death metal look elsewhere. The "Scarred People" is like a cross between Sisters of Mercy, Type O Negative, and Pink Floyd if you can imagine thatand this new albums blends those three areas of music very well.
There is nothing on here overtly heavy, which is a great thing as the previous album "Amanethes" was brilliant except for those Bonus Track) - Tiamat - The Scarred People (Vinyl when the band tried too hard to recapture something of its heavy past. Dark and somber for the most part, there are a few tracks that feel strangely uplifting, but this album really shines through on songs like "The Sun Also Rises", "Love Terrorists", and "Radiant Star.
Honestly, Tiamat has always been at their best when they dropped all the fuzz of early albums. Wildhoney was great, and I appreciate songs like "Whatever that Hurts" or "Visionaire", but albums like "A Deeper Kind of Slumber" and "Judas Christ" showed a lot of potential in the goth realm for this band. There are so few gothic type bands that have the courage to create this kind of music without hiding under the growl of death metal.
Tiamat's new album kind of gives the finger to those waiting for a return toand they have delivered another fine album in doing so. There seems to be two types of Tiamat fans out there - The ones who keep clamoring for the old black metal days guys, it's been 20 years, time to move onand those like myself that feel Tiamat excel best at their more gloomy psychedelic goth rock.
Well, I'm glad to announce that if you are the latter, you will absolutely be pleased by The Scarred People. While Amanethes was a perfect album in my eyes musically, for some reason Johan's vocals were a bit off - Tracks like Lucienne and Until the Hellhounds Sleep Again showed Johan's voice cracked and shaky, trying to hit dramatic low notes that he probably shouldn't have.
It ended up sounding a bit corny. Still, I've come to enjoy the album as one of my favorites. I'm happy to report that Johan's vocals on The Scarred People go back to the more smooth dark delivery he had on Skeleton Skeletron and Prey, though much lower in the mix this time around. I was so pleased that they went LP to these styles because speaking personally, I became a fan of the band during the A Deeper Kind of Slumber years so this record is a return to form in my eyes.
Lots of dark electronic undertones swirl against the increasingly Floydian guitars. As a matter of fact, the whole record is pretty much a mid-tempo atmospheric ride into Johan Edlund's mind and the experiences he's had over the last 4 years as he stated in a recent interview.
Messinian Letter is a full on heartfelt acoustic rock song that almost entirely echoes Heaven of High from Judas Christ and Meliae from Amanethes, though Meliae is still a superior song in my eyes. Also tying the record to the Deeper Kind of Slumber days is the use of acoustic guitar passages Tiznit and connecting short guitar jams Before Another Wildbury Dies - both passable, unless listening to the record as a whole.
The bonus songs are covers and live tracks. Born to Die is a cover of a track by Lana Del Ray who? Some indie pop song. Truthfully would have been better left off the record. The other bonus track Paradise is a cover of a Bruce Springsteen song from It's not my cup of tea, but it's the first Tiamat album where bassist Anders Iwers does lead vocals.
It's interesting to say the least. The live tracks are Cain and Divided from a show. All in all, unless you have been keeping track of the band these last 15 years, there will be little here to appreciate. Tiamat is an atmospheric goth rock act - that's what they do best and The Scarred People proves this. Fans of the band will be pleased. Those still wishing for Wildhoney part 2 will continue to be in denial.
Don't miss this soon to be sleeper hit of Far superior to new works released by Katatonia or My Dying Bride. Essential Tiamat, Bonus Track) - Tiamat - The Scarred People (Vinyl. Great sounding album, vocals, melodies, and guitars all Bonus Track) - Tiamat - The Scarred People (Vinyl good on this album. I did edit out some of the more religious lyrics, but other than that 5 stars. Johan's voice sounds great and his lyrics are good as well.
There is even a cool cover tune called Paradise sung by band member Anders Iwers. Bottom line is when i can pull 12 very good songs of a band release, that's pretty damn good. Need customer service? Click here. There's a problem loading this menu right now.
