More than 25 years after the release their legendary fifth album, “Theli”, the seminal album will be available on deluxe CD once again via Hammerheart Records! Today, “Theli” is considered formative in the symphonic and operatic metal genres - incorporating choir and classical instruments and contributing immensely to the breakthrough of Therion, all the while being a release that the band themselves considered a defiant departure from their standard ways.
Opening track “To Mega Therion”, still a fixture of the band’s live shows, emerges as top-class with its influential guitar lines, complex structures, a constant flux of varying lead vocals and choral elements. Throughout the whole album, Therion showcases how classical music and metal soundscapes can coexist: balancing driving harshness and withdrawn, atmospheric passages, growls by famous musician and producer Dan Swanö and soaring choir, as well as keyboard and guitar. “Theli” is an undisputed all time classic highly acclaimed by fans and critics, delving into a sound that shaped the evolving symphonic metal genre to come.
