Staff review by
Therion has established nowadays as important band, their innovative use of choirs in later albums raise them to a cult status level in the Metal scene, and many bands were inspired to use choirs in their productions, therefore, the popular term "choirs á la Therion".

But if you heard such albums by Therion, you must know that it wasn't like that always, long before that, Therion started as a Death Metal act, and slowly changed into what are they're now. Lepaca Kliffoth is their last Death Metal album with Christofer Johnsson in the vocals, his singing was backed up by 2 trained opera singers.

There must be something wrong...
