RATING: 

I have to be honest; I never listened to a song (as far as I can remember) from the band Thalamus before. Hiding From Daylight is their fourth album and they don’t play a style I would usually listen to. In fact, the music is a mix of several styles. Groovy heavy rock with slower doom parts, influenced by 70’s rock with a progressive touch. Especially the Hammond organ and keyboard parts see to it that there is a big 70’s feeling throughout the album.

Not being a real fan of this style makes it difficult for me  to review. Personally I like the song ‘The Painter’ because it has some fast parts and nice Hammond organ and keys. Less interesting, I find ‘Someday’, a slow epic, almost doom track, but I can imagine that this will be others favorite song! The vocals of Kjell Bergendahl are okay, but his singing sometimes sounds a bit whiny, which bothers me a bit.

Nevertheless, Hiding From Daylight that will be liked by a lot, especially when you like 70’s groovy rock with nice Hammond organs. If you are one of them, you can add at least one devil to the rating.

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
