Therion - Share Artwork, Tracklist And Release Date Of New Rock Opera


On February 2nd, symphonic metal pioneers Therion will finally release Christofer Johnsson's monumental brainchild Beloved Antichrist, a rock opera loosely inspired by Vladímir Soloviov's "A Short Tale Of The Antichrist".

The dramatic and epic opus comes to life through 27 different character roles, performed by long-time band members like Thomas Vikström, Lori Lewis and Chiara Malvestiti, amongst many others. The band will unveil the first excerpt from Beloved Antichrist in single form before Christmas - and today, they present the cover artwork designed by Thomas Ewerhart, as well as the tracklist.

Holding my breath. This seems like Gothic Kabbalah 2, although a rather stretched one. This band has been on a downwards spiral for a while and they are slowly moving into more symphonic territory, abandoning with each album more of metal's trademarks. Then again, if it is something like Secrets of the Runes, their best work, I might give it a shot.

I'll wait for a few songs to be released and then take it from there. This sounds ok, but as a comment on here makes mention they have been on a downwards spiral and they have lost my attention to say the least.

Three hours? I refuse to have any expectations for this. 50/50 chance of being excellent or abysmal, at least it will probably not be boring.

True. It will probably be either brilliant or horse poo. But you need patience to listen to a 3-hour album...
