Tiamat – Live at Sabaton Open Air 2022-08-04

8/10

I had my doubts over this show. I followed the band during their early days but somewhere along the road we parted ways. I heard them every now and then and didn´t really get what they were doing.
Pink Floyd metal maybe. Very subtle and gothic.  And what I heard they didn’t fare well at this years Sweden rock festival either. And yes, Johan Edlund doesn’t look like the goth metal frontman he once was with a black and white striped shirt and a hat. But hey what we who attended tonight’s show got was far beyond what I ever could imagine or hope. Another band seemingly better live than on record? And of course, when it started to rain during the show just  shows how gloomy the band is. And for me who played “Clouds” over and over again back in the day to hear “Sleeping Beauty” and “In a dream” were fantastic.

If Johan were a bit more alert, he might have been speaking more to us before the song “Vote For love” as it is election time in Sweden.  So, remember you all Swedes, lets vote for love in September, right?

Magnificent show. Thanks guys.
