Tiamat has pulled a hat trick with this album. for one, Johan Edlund’s voice is different, the album credits list that the guitar players play electric and acoustic guitars, as well as Johan playing the bouzouki. they also seem to be rocking a little harder with this album.they also have an evil vibe about them too. on the third song, Johan Edlund sounds like Type O Negative frontman Peter Steele, and on the fourth song, there is some acoustic picking. all in all there are some new textures on this album. I recommend this album to metal fans everywhere who appreciate metal with different elements.
