Judas Christ

Judas Christ
(Century Media - 2002)

You never know what to expect from a new Tiamat album, this time they continue their way. A way they started with Wildhoney and with the 1999 release Skeleton Skeletron they started to leave the sadness and bitterness behind. Judas Christ has partly more rocking guitars, but at the same time it's more commercial. The 12 album tracks are divided into 4 chapters like a book. Every chapter symbolize a mood the songs have. Again Johan Edlund and his band deal lyrically more with every day life instead of the paranoid world of Edlunds emotions. Judas Christ is the most positive album of the Swedish so far and get them even closer to the sounds Pink Floyd, but still harder. Vote For Love is a straight number and the most commercial one Tiamat ever did, but there are also typical Tiamat tunes like So Much For Suicide. At the same time this album is different even to their last release. Johan Edlund is defining Tiamat new with every release, taking the best out of the last one and create a new Tiamat cosmos. This time their world is more positive then ever, their start into the new millennium.
