BEING A RELATIVELY OLD THERION ALBUM, IT IS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM THEIR ALBUMS, WHICH HAVE DIVERSIFIED INTO THE METAL-OPERA SCENE. THE VOCALS ARE NOT VERY DEATH-METAL LIKE OR ANYTHING SIMILAR TO THE OPERATIC STYLE THAT THE BAND HAS NOW EMPLOYED. IT IS QUITE ARABIC SOUNDING, WHICH ADDS A DELIGHTFUL MYSTICKAL FEEL TO EACH SONG (WHICH ARE GENERALLY ABOUT DEMONS AND DRAGONS THE LIKE). THERION SEAMLESSLY AND BRILLIANTLY COMBINE FAST AND HARD WITH HAUNTING, SLOW AND PERPETUALLY DARK STYLES OF MUSIC. THIS ALBUM IS HIGHLY ENTERTAINING AND EASY TO LISTEN TO, AS IT IS NOT A CONSTANT BARRACADE OF BRUTALITY, BUT AN INTELLIGENT AND MUSICALLY MAGNIFICENT PIECE OF WORK. THERION HAVE DEVELOPED THEIR OWN STYLE OF METAL HERE AND HAVE MADE IT AN ART FORM. THE ABSORBING GUITAR RIFFS AND SKILLFUL DRUMMING MAKE THIS ALBUM A MUST-BUY FOR ANY FAN OF GOOD, POWERFUL MUSIC. WITH THIS DISK YOU GET 13 TRACKS IN ALL WHICH LAST ABOUT 45 MINUTES. AMAZING PRODUCTION, BRILLIANTLY PERFORMED-I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS HIGHLY ENOUGH.

Its a widely held belief that 1996's Theli was the album that Therion began their symphonic metal voyage on. I would have to digress as i reckon that 1994's Lepaca Kliffoth is where the band made a big evolution from their earlier albums. As on Theli, the orchestral sounds are still created artificially by keyboards but are still very effective, creating an epic & gothic atmosphere.
Real strings were not utilised until 1998's Vovin.
LK sees the start of the male/female operatic vocals that became such a mainstay of the Therion sound.
What is unique about this album is main man Christofer Johnsson's vocals -in no way operatic or death metal either - i can best describe them as a kind of hardcore style, similiar to Evan Seinfeld from Brooklyn's Biohazard! Actually this loud, shouting style works on the album & it has to be said that the lyrics are perhaps more easy to make out than some of the cookie monster vocals found elsewhere.
The guitar, bass & drums are all very solid with a range of tempos from slow & doom filled up to fast & brutal.
If you only want the SYMPHONIC Therion then only go back as far as this album, maybe 1993's Symphony Masses has enough progression on it as well.
Go back earlier to the first two album, Of Darkness & Beyond Sanctorum and you may be dissapointed. They are competent albums but offer nothing more than typical early 90's Death Metal & as such are only for the die hard fans or BASIC Death Metal devotees.

Standout Track: Riders Of Theli.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Sound in the Making 21 July 2010
By Oliverio Casas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Therion didn't invent symphonic metal, since the idea of coupling hard rock and classical instrumentation goes as far as Deep Purple's Concerto for Group and Orchestra project in 1969, and underground metal bands like Celtic Frost experimented with symphonic samples and operatic vocals in the mid 80s. That said, because of Theli's runaway success, most metalheads consider Cristopher Johnsson (the band's main musical driving force during the band's long and storied career) the father of this subgenre, since that album was the first successful coupling of two very disparate musical camps and for once, the symphonic parts sounded like they were composed alongside the riffs and not added as an afterthought. After its 1996 seminal album, Therion kept repeating this winning formula with bigger budgets by replacing samples with real instruments and adding more opera singers in each subsequent album with varying degrees of artistic success.
Originally Therion was a death metal band. By its third album, Symphony Masses, Chistopher Johnsson started toying with some pseudo classical sounds and industrial textures. On Lepaca Kliffoth, the band's fourth full length album, he introduced operatic singing, which would become a staple of the band's sound on later albums, and gave more prominence to the classical instrumentation than before, but still, the symphonic elements feel somewhat grafted to the songs. That said, tracks like The Wings of the Hydra and The Beauty in Black foreshadow the artistic heights the band woult achieve on its next album, so despite its transitional nature, this album is highly recommended to any symphonic metal fan not only because of its historical importance, but also for its songs, which may not be as strong and musically realized as those in Theli, but still much better than most of the band's post Lemuria/Sirus B output.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peak of a peak performance by unrivaled Therion 21 Jun. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My experience with Therion started with some 'copy-of-a-copy' cassetes, back when i was a kid (8 years ago ;)). From this time i have never hesitated to trust them with any new album. One day, i spotted a brand new title lying on the shelf. In a milisecond it was already in my hand and in next couple ones - in my cd player...and there it remained :) If you would ever like to hear a song being truly a divine masterpiece - go for The Beauty in Black (plus the ouverture of it - Arrival of the darkest Queen) from this album. The rest of them is also wonderfully arranged, balanced and played. Lure into fantastic climate along with such great songs like Lepaca Kliffoth, Riders of Theli or The Wings of the Hydra... The list would continue, eventually covering all tracks. You have to listen to it, there is simply _no other choice_ :)))
