Since 2006, Tamerlan has been the musical project of Timur Iskandarov, but also his outlet for breaching the boundaries between our reality and alternate realities, and for pushing beyond self-imposed limitations.From the first steps of exploration in the form of mystical and minimalistic ethereal soundscapes, to the occult folk works presented in his more recent releases, the sole purpose of Tamerlan has been to foster a connection to the forces and energies that make us the supreme beings of this world; forces and energies we, as humans, have given up upon.
Throughout his life, Iskandarov has moved through literal borders, spending extended time in Russia, Uzbekistan, Serbia, and Turkey among others, drawing inspiration from each locale. Likewise, he has drawn inspiration from performances and collaborations with artists like Sol Invictus, Arcana, Der Blaue Reiter, Seventh Harmonic, Borgne, Kawir, and Loell Duinn.
Fans of those bands will certainly be enchanted by Luciferian, Tamerlan’s ninth and latest album, which we’re happy to present in its entirety for you today.
Luciferian can be ordered through Causus Belli Musica in CD and digital format via Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Deezer, Spotify, Google Play and others).
