Therion, formerly known as Blitzkrieg (1987-1988) and Megatherion (1988), is a symphonic metal band founded by Christofer Johnsson in Upplands Väsby, Sweden in 1987. In April 2008, Christofer stated that the musicians are parting in their own ways, however the band has not officially disbanded, Christofer is currently looking for new band members to continue the musical work.

Therion was initially a death metal band, however starting with 1995’s Lepaca Kliffoth, Therion began to gradually incorporate symphonic elements into their metal music. The band has seen many changes in line-up and style throughout its history. Only Christofer Johnsson, Kristian Niemann (guitars), Johan Niemann (bass), and Petter Karlsson (drums) were considered the constant members. All others, including vocalists like Sarah Jezebel Deva, Piotr Wawrzenuk, and Mats Levén, are session members.

THERION Lepaca Kliffoth

siLLy puPPy
Although LEPACA KLIFFOTH is often deemed the transition album in THERION’s sound to the fully formed progressive symphonic metal on “Theli” that launched them into the world’s attention, THERION actually always took a more experimental approach even at their very beginning. While their early albums were clearly rooted in death metal with a hardcore punk attitude, they were still using occasional clean vocals and keyboards albeit more for embellishments than as a major component in the aggressiveness. Another step in their sound came on “Symphony Masses” which added elements of jazz, industrial, chants and more traditional sounds of metal. LEPACA KLIFFOTH (referring to the Qliphoth, the representation of evil forces in Jewish mysticism) simply changes the balance of the elements hitherto presented and adds some new twists and turns to advance their evolution into the symphonic metal of “Theli” and beyond.

While this album begins as rather straight death ’n’ roll with occasional symphonic embellishments, by the time we get to the third track, the short and sweet “Arrival Of The Darkest Queen” we get a fully fledged folky symphonic sound that ushers in the band’s first ever single “The Beauty In Black” which began their experiments with a sound more reminiscent of “Theli” with the emphasis on the symphonic elements that includes a female soprano, a male baritone and also on the melodic development rather than the aggressive chugga chug of the guitar riffage, so i would say this song is the true final metamorphosis of their sound. However, the next track gets cold feet and retreats back to a more death metal rooted sound. Thus the very nature of this one step ahead and two steps back approach on LEPACA KLIFFOTH is what makes this seem like a very scattered and uneven album.

Despite the dominance of the death metal sound, other influences find their way into the mix including Persian ethnic music, a much wider vocal approach as well as keyboards becoming more prominent. Some tracks like “Black” actually tie the past to the future with a beauty-and-the-beast approach that mixes death metal vocals with the female soprano. It also includes a Celtic Frost cover “Sorrows Of The Moon.” I find the most interesting tracks to be the last two. The title track has a melancholic guitar intro that builds up into a heavy rocker that incorporates some of the strangest vocals on the album. The progressiveness also displays interesting technical drumming patterns with highly melodic guitar riffs. The tempo varies substantially and time sig changes are abundant and i love the metal chants of the ending. “Evocation Of Vovin” is an energetic little symphonic keyboard number that is probably the most “Theli-like” track on the album. This is an all-over-the-place album which as a cohesive album is pretty weak, but there are plenty of excellent individual tracks on here making it a worthy listen.

Who would have ever thought that metal would come to this way back in the late 70s and early 80s when the genre was really picking up some serious steam? Symphonic power metal versions of French chanson probably didn’t cross anyone’s minds in those days, however in Sweden when the Mayan calendar turned over in 2012 it did. Of course everyone knows that THERION were innovators in popularizing their brand of symphonic power metal with the release of “Theli” way back in the 90s and have released one stellar album after another since but they have been seriously in danger of the whole thing becoming a little stale despite the high quality of interesting tracks they laid upon us. Well, on their 15th studio album LES FLEURS DU MAL (The Flowers Of Evil) they decided to unleash their romantic side by taking tracks by 60s and 70s French chanson artists and adding a healthy dose of Nordic aggression to make an unlikely combo.

The French artists covered here include France Gail, Victoire Scott, Serge Gainsbourg, Marie Laforêt, Sylvie Vartan, Annie Philippe, Isabelle, Léonie, Claire Dixon and Betty Mars. The cast of musicians on board is the regular army with six full band members plus 24! guest musicians adding all kinds of orchestral sounds like trumpet, flute, oboe, trombone, horn, cello, violin, accordion, mellotron and additional guitars and vocals. The sound is full and rich and extremely well produced. The clash of the modern symphonic metal world with 60s / 70s pop music really is a test of one’s eclectic nature and acceptance of strange ideas merging into an unlikely union, but THERION manage to pull this off with ease because they are obviously professional and passionate about every detail of the music they put out.

I have to admit that upon first listen i was scratching my head with this one. There are tracks where the vocals are ridiculously over the top despite being more than impressive but somehow once my mind was blown way open i have to say that this works for me. This is a noble experiment that deserves a chance to shine but personally i wouldn’t want to hear a repeat of this idea for despite my growing to appreciate it, it just doesn’t quite hit me as enjoyable as pretty much all the albums since “Theli.” So hopefully this is a one album fulfillment that doesn’t have to be repeated. Still though an excellent experiment that takes a stab at the unlikely pairing of Scandinavian Viking sounds tackling the subtle intricate sensualities of a Romance language such as French. You probably won’t hear French metal bands like Deathspell Omega or Blut Aus Nord taking this on! Pleasant listening and well done but still not quite as good as the albums ranging from “Theli” to “Sitra Ahra.”

Having recently purchased the 2014 remastered and expanded edition, I have fallen under the spell of the mighty THERION with their landmark album THELI. This album has become one of the greatest representations of just how well a death metal band can retain the pummeling ferocity of their roots while totally integrating the symphonic tenderness of classical music and the pompousness of classical opera, thus in effect totally reinventing itself without losing what came before. After all, their very name THERION is a Greek word for “beast,” and on this album THELI, which is the name of the great dragon in the ancient Jewish scripts of the Sefer Yetzirah, the band developed a totally new sound and although it can be a recipe that more often fails than triumphs, in THELI's case I would have to say it is an outstanding victory.

I think the reason why this whole thing works so well is because the band members didn't have the audacity to perform and create every new aspect of this music themselves. They incorporated a whole host of different players including not one but two choirs.... the North German Radio Choir and the Siren Choir. In addition to this we also get Dan Swano of Edge Of Santiy lending some guest vocals and many, many keyboardists covering a whole spectrum of sounds ranging from grand piano to symphonic progressive runs. Another wise decision was to incorporate the lyrical contributions of Thomas Karlsson as the sole writer of lyrics to provide the album with the esoteric feel that were derived from his mystical order called the Dragon Rouge. He would continue to be the lyricist from this point on.

On the remastered version we also get three bonus tracks, none of which are essential but pleasant as well as a DVD with the entirety of the album performed live in Budapest in 2007. A grand testimony to the efforts and ingenuity that went into the creation of this musical behemoth that hasn't aged badly at all and album that I love to listen to on regular basis. Mmmmmagnificent!

Therion don't quite sell out with this album, but it is undeniable that Sitra Ahra is vastly more approachable and accessible than the dense double album of Gothic Kabbalah, and they seem less averse to throwing in some entertainingly catchy hooks into their compositions than usual. It's certainly a far cry from the ugly occult symphonic death metal they started out with, but the purists parted way with Therion a good long time ago, and this release focuses on their symphonic strengths whilst simultaneously coming up with enough novel twists to keep things feeling fresh and vibrant and to convince me that maybe Therion still have a bit of gas left in the tank, even if they aren't going on a trip I want to ride on.

Therion get their Serge Gainsbourg on with this collection of generic metal-flavoured covers of classic French pop songs. It's an interesting experiment in exploring what metal can learn from this unexpected quarter, but all it makes me want to do is go listen to the originals rather than sit through these Therion-by-numbers adaptations of old material. I can sit through one or two of these at the time, but the schtick begins to wear thin after five minutes or so and perhaps Therion would have been better simply taking this style of songwriting and adding motifs reminiscent of the genre to original compositions of their own rather than adhering to the original tunes as strictly as they do here.
