Therion have been around for decades, having produced at least a dozen albums, and I still have yet to work them out. No two of their albums seem to even be written by the same band, there are so many differences and changes in style. Vovin and Deggial are the only two that spring to mind that fit together quite well. Other than that, throughout their career they have continued to confuse and surprise us. Which is why we love them, of course.

Here on Sitra Ahra, they seem to have mixed together every style and idea they've had previously as well as loads of new surprises. If opener Sitra Ahra isn't enough to prove that Therion are the most original, unique and downright mental band you will ever hear, then you will certainly be convinced by the end. Opening with a combination of male and female operatic vocals and their trademark classical touches, heavy riffs and exotic melodies, Therion have in no way lost their ability to hook you with their strange, mystical and powerful sounds. In a way, you could say they have gone back to their roots, returning to their more complex and category defying musical amalgam, toning down the heaviness of albums like Lemuria, focussing more on the varying vocal styles: male death vocals, male operatic, female operatic, choral, falsetto... The things that have always made Therion what they are, the trademark riffs, the classical influences, the heavy use of choral vocals and the total disregard for metal convention are certainly present.

In a way, you know what to expect from Therion, and that is to not know what to expect at all!

For those unfamiliar to Therion, they are a band that pretty much define symphonic metal, they can be pretty over the top on occasion, definitely insane in places; sometimes they sound pretty heavy giving a hint of their swedish death metal roots, and sometimes they will deliver music that makes you wonder if it really belongs in the metal category.

Their latest album really delivers, stylistically it fits in the midpoint between Lemuria/Sirius B and their last album, Gothic Kaballah. I understand that the basis of some of the material is Christofer Johnsson's intentions for the follow up to Lemuria/Sirius B, and so that is probably no surprise. I won't go too much into the songs except to say Land of Canaan and Children of the Stone are probably now amongst my favorite Therion tracks, and Cu Chulainn and Kings of Edom aren't far behind. The key thing is though, it hasn't left my cd player since it arrived, so that pretty much sums up my opinions.

This is another fantastic album by the very much underrated Therion. It's exactly what you'd expect and want from this unique band, and as with most albums, it does take more than one play to fully appreciate it, so ignore the two star 'appalling' rating, the five star ratings are spot on.
I also had the great pleasure of seeing them live in London last week, and they are absolutely brilliant on stage. Four singers! And great to see Snowy Shaw back in the ranks.

For those new to Therion - a symphonic metal band, lots of guitars and strings, sounding like a classically influenced Iron Maiden with operatic vocals, male and female. Some quieter moments. Lyrics full off occult themes influenced by the darker sides of world religion. Raw sounding but usually polished. Masterminded by Swede Christofer Johnson.

This is still a great album but I think the weakest Therion release since before Theli, so a bit disappointing. It sounds to me like a new band trying to find its feet, which essentially it is, with Christofer deciding on many line-up changes since Gothic Kabbalah. Whereas before that might have freshened things up a bit, not the case here. Production is also a bit below par I think.

It gets off to a bad start with an intro that sounds like the theme to Midsomer Murders, followed by the title track which has OK verses but a cheesy chanting chorus that sounds like something Abba might have discarded (remeniscent of Summer Night City which Therion covered as a bonus track on Secret of the Runes). This is followed by perhaps the dullest track, Kings of Edom, which should've been toward the end of the CD I feel.

Things seem to pick up with Unguentum Sabbatti, a classic track written by Snowy Shaw that is bound to become a popular live addition, but even this descends into something that sounds ripped-off from Andrew Lloyd Webber. Sadly, Snowy has now left the line-up and it will be difficult for anyone else to follow his performance on this track.

I could go on, but the CD follows a similar pattern. Not usual for so much cheese to appear on a Therion release, but there is plenty here. At least it ends on a high, with the rip-roaring catchy thrash of Din and a final quieter track that would have graced Vovin.
