Therion - Beloved Antichrist 2018

Orchestral Prog-Related Metal
Very ambitious project to make a 3-hour rock opera. Definitely too long...

Therion - Sitra Ahra 2010

Orchestral Prog-Related Metal
Clearly a step back from the previous album. More like a mix of the double Lemuria/Sirius B albums with some extreme parts but less metal parts... the orchestration is pushed in front again.

The most diverse album since Symphony Masses! Orchestral metal with some extreme metal, and many influences (german, spanish, greek, nordic, roman...)

Therion - Secret Of The Runes 2001

Symphonic Prog-Related Metal
This album is very strange... a concept album based on nordic traditions done in a Richard Wagner style. But why put those ugly covers at the end?

Three albums in one. A metal album with unreleased songs and covers, a Therion album with operatic metal, and a classical album with opera singers and orchestra.

Therion - Theli 1996
9.0
Symphonic Prog Metal
Classic heavy metal with opera singing, "Theli" is probably the album that started the symphonic metal genre. "The Siren Of The Woods" is one in my top 10 favorites songs of all time.

Therion - Lepaca Kliffoth 1995

Symphonic Prog Metal
The first Therion album with no death metal vocals. Instead, we have hardcore vocals with opera singers on some songs. The music is much more melodic, with more keyboards and even orchestra samples.

Death metal mixed with classic heavy metal, speed/trash metal, hardcore, classic and folkish

Therion - Beyond Sanctorum 1991
3.0
Non-Prog Death Metal
Bribes of keyboards, clean vocals and folkish music diluted in lots and lots of brutal death
metal. Another album to skip if you're not fan of this type of music...

Therion - Of Darkness... 1991
1.0
Non-Prog Death Metal
A compilation from the very early years... brutal death metal from beginning to end, and only fans of that type of music will appreciate.

Symphonic Prog Metal
For me the best Therion album. The classical and metal parts are perfectly balanced, both classical and traditional metal singers do a great job, the production is awesome...

Therion - Gothic Kabbalah 2007

Symphonic Prog-Related Power Metal
After the first listen, I found this album quite disappointing compared to "Sirius B". But after more listens I started to enjoy it... it's not a bad album, it's simply different from the previous releases.

In fact the main contributor to the orchestral feeling of previous Therion albums (Christofer Johnsson) did participate less in the songwriting. With the addition of more traditional vocalists (power metal singer Mats Leven, ex-King Diamond/Mercyful Fate drummer Snowy Shaw and two new female vocalists), the result sounds more "metal" and less symphonic. Orchestrations and classical singers are still used, just less...
