"The Philosopher King" incorporates extreme music and thought-provoking lyrics to give metal listeners a more personal experience, touching on issues like insecurity, alienation (both voluntary and involuntary), and emotional suffering. The music is fast, heavy and intense, as well as beautiful, organic, and accessible to all fans of metal. Songs are written in such a way as to inspire and empower others dealing with personal anxieties.
"...Tarim will bring you many styles. From progressive-melodic, to European Black metal to a heavy North American death metal, the result is ‘The Philosopher King.’ Combined with top notch production, this is a five out of five star must have." -- Soundcrave Magazine

“This is a unique brand of melodic death and it hits you like a Mack truck right out of the gate. Eventually these dudes will gain some major recognition due to the fact that their skill and talent cannot be overlooked.” -- Brokenneckradio.com
