Therion's success is quite huge... don't think they're underrated...

Saw them several times live, but somehow they weren't able to convince me. Of course they play nice music but there is something missing..

Sorry I liked them from the beginning, they like all bands have some real duds but I enjoy Sirius B alot more than Lemuria but they are both great. Black Sun was my first fav song from Vovin. DAMN HARD ALBUM TO FIND TOO!

Agreed. I also don't think they're underrated, they have their own mass of fans, which is quite large IMO.

If Therion's success is quite huge then you need to explain how this supposedly huge band is practically unknown where I'm from.....

Therion are also unkown here, from where I come from. But inside the ''metalheads'' there is really quite a large number of Therion fans.

I'm also taking into consideration their discography and their originality in how they continually reinvent themselves as musicians.  My point is if you have to go to a metalheads lair which is basically non existant to the majority of people its still beyond me how the band could be considered huge.  If we are talking solely about metal circles you could call Agalloch huge if you wanted too.

Agalloch is pretty unknown here... but every Metalhead knows Therion. Their last show at the Planet Music in Vienna was sold out, which happens usually never! (except if Cradle plays.. ;))

Perhaps over in your neck of the woods that is true.  Maybe fifty people attended the Therion concert in my hometown.  What a *insert random daily cursive* disgrace.  I went to have a beer at the bar and then ran straight ahead and had no problems making my way into the very first row of fans(because there werent rows of em)!   :(

I'm not trying to say all metalheads have not heard Therion.  There just arent very many household names amongst European metal when it comes to North American metal fans except for the old classics. Many of them dont venture too far out of this continent for music which is too bad.

It depends on the city. Montreal, being closer to being an European city than an American city, has a very good metal scene, for example. Nightwish had 2 sold out shows, fairly sure Stratovarius and Therion were sold out too.

I like Therion, one of my favorite bands (with Tristania and a few others, of course, it's hard to keep track these days). Went to the Montreal show, I honestly didn't expect it to be popular but the place was packed and the show was very good.

I understand a lot of European metal bands don't come to North America though... Therion hadn't been here in 7 years, and other bands like WT, Epica, (did Tristania ever come here?) might not feel it's a good investment (I don't blame them, as was said, most of North America likes old American metal bands).

I can attest to Montreal having a great metal scene.   ;)   My neck is still recovering from it!!!   :lol:  I cant wait for Kreator and Napalm Death in February!   :D  Anyways kudos to Therion for coming to Canada.  It would be great if more of these labels realized the amount of metal fans in Toronto and Montreal.

That would be amazing news(as long as its not just the perspective of North America being the United States  :P )

Quick note:

Therion will be starting pre-production for the new album next week.

The recordings will be interupted by some festivals in March. And there will be some surprises on stage on the Metal Mania festivals...
