As i wrote in late February Tiamat was working on new songs for an upcoming album, well now they have entered Woodhouse Studios in Hagen, Germany to records their 10th studioalbum. The album will be released through Napalm Records and the title of the album are The Scarred People.
Personally i can’t wait until the album will be released and as of now the released is set for sometime in October, looks like christmas will be early this year! I will publish more about the album details as soon as i know anything more.
So the weekend is over and the House of Metal Festival 2012 in Umeå Sweden have passed. My reflections of the weekend is that it was a really good festival, not that many bands that i wanted to see, but still like 6 bands over two days wich is perfect because you have time to take a beer and just relax between shows. On friday both of my main priority bands played, Tiamat wich was by far the best bands on the festival, they did a really good gig, and since this was my second time seeing them i was extra excited. First time i saw them was 2009 and outdoors in broad daylight, so i must say their music fitted more in at an indoor and dark enviroment. Amon Amarth was second out on friday, they also did a good show, first time i saw em and hopefully not the last. At the end of the show LG from Entombed joined them on stage to do vocals for the song “Guardians of Asgaard” wich was a pleasant surprise. See videoclip below.
On saturday there were a few more bands to check out, In Solitude wich was my second time i saw, was as good as last time, just amazing. The Kristet Utseende, Hail of Bullets, Immortal (wich i just saw the first three songs because i had to leave for the In Solitude gig) and Entombed wich also did a relly good job even though i don’t liten too much to their new albums i still enjoy to hear the old tunes. Overall a really nice festival wich i did visit for the second time, and i sure hope there will be more visits from me on this festival.

Here is a videoclip from Amon Amarth show at House of Metal 2012 where they perform the song “Guardians of Asgaard” with LG from Entombed as guestvocalist.
Johan Edlund, Vocalist/Guitarist of Tiamat left this message on the band’s official Facebook page a few days ago “Working on new songs. So far so good. No promises are no promises broken. Old enough to be patient. Rome wasn’t built.. Etc..” I know it’s not much to go on but just the fact that the band are now writing on new material gives me goosebumps, it’s always a joy to hear new music from Tiamat, and the bands latest album Amanethes was released back in 2008 so i think it’s about time for a new album.
I will see the band next weekend at House Of Metal Festival in Umeå, Sweden and im really excited since they don’t play here in Sweden too much and i have only seen them one time before and that was a few years ago now.
Until we meet again, listen to “Equinox of the gods” from the album Amanethes
