With their roots in death metal, Therion were one of the first to include symphonic and classical elements in their metal sound in the 90’s: with violins, cello and double bass blending effortlessly with guitars, drums and bass. Now, “Vovin”; Therion seventh album and catalog bestseller, will be re-released on deluxe CD via Hammerheart Records. Written entirely solo by founding member Christopher Johnsson and recorded with studio musicians, “Vovin” went on to be the band’s most successful release.
Exceedingly symphonic songs like opener “The Rise Of Sodom And Gomorrah” alternate with faster numbers, and with “Eye Of Shiva” the album finds a beautiful ballad with impressive guitar solos and catchy vocals. Album highlight “Clavicula Nox” shines as an over eight-minute piece boasting acoustic guitars, strings, solo vocals, choirs, guitar solos and incomparably pleasant, somber atmospheres, inviting the listener to lose themself completely in the music. With over 150,000 copies sold, “Vovin” marked the band’s place on top of the metal scene
