I like Therion, Lemuria and Sirius B are in my top 5 albums of 2004.

I don't like them so much, I saw them when they were on tour with Tristania. The music is ok, but their singer can't fucking sing in my opinion.

Yeah ... me too, at the same place - at the same time :)


Therion is one of my favourite bands .... I really love albums like Vovin (the most beautiful of Therion cd),Deggial ... Thelli ... Crowning of Atlantis ... Secret of the runs ..... <--this cds are the best imho. The double new album is OK, but nothing great. Some of song are really really great, but not the whole album.

But ... YES, i like Therion :)

I simply LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Therion. They have been among my fave bands for quite some time now and I just can't get enough of them. Each and every album is a little masterpiece and each and every one of them is unique and special in its own way. So far my fave work of them is Vovin, partly also because Raven of Disperision was the fisrt Therion song I have heard and it has remained my fave ever since.

I also saw them in November and they were so amazing, although I agree - the new singer really do sux. But then again, it was nice that they played a whole bunch of old, ''classic Therion songs'' so I was able to sink in every song as deep as possible. And of course I loved it!

Lemuria/Sirius B were probably one of the biggest surprises of last year, as far as I know these two album are among faves among Therion fans, and I agree - they are great indeed. But I prefer Sirius B to Lemuria, simply because I think it's less experimental and just more Therion. (And khm the guy with the crazy fasletto...  <_<  )

So, I truly hope I'll get the chance to see them perform live again and that they'll release some new material soon. :wub: Therion :wub:

vovin is the first i heard from them, and still my favorite. what i liked the most about therion, was the choirs. so i was desapointed with the 2 last ones, since they use a lot of that "power metal" singer. i can deal with the growlings though, but i would prefere they would keep using the choirs all the way. there are planty of metal bands using growlings, but not choirs...

but i still really like that band  B)

Yeah, I agree. But this power metal singer has very good voice imho but maybe not for Therion music.

Well, IMO, he just sux. I think he kinda ruined certain parts of the albums, you can barely hear from his singing what he's sining, and at the concert he acted like he's on the top of the world. But he isn't. jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee I hate falsettos!!!!

yeah, i agree, it ruined several songs. and another thing, they're supposed to record with a huge orchestra, and on many song, you can't even notice classical instruments... i don't get it...

Therion have to be one of the most underrated bands.  Considering their unique path and how great they are.  My favorite is Theli followed by Lepaca Kliffoth.
