Therion have always challenged themselves when it came to breaking new ground while still staying true to their musical roots. Equally influenced by Richard Wagner, Celtic Frost or Slayer, band mastermind Christofer Johnsson created Therion 35 years ago, a band that is always exploring new frontiers in the metal genre. The creative head was one of the first to make excursions into the world of classical music with his formation and set musical milestones in symphonic metal. In autumn Therion will come once again to Pratteln with album number 18 "Leviathan II".
Many musicians have used the involuntary pandemic break to write songs and produce new albums. Also the Swedish formation Therion didn't let the time go to waste - and went completely new ways: "We tackled the only thing we hadn't tried yet out of all the possibilities," explains band founder Christofer Johnsson. "We decided to give the fans what they had been asking for for so long. 'Leviathan' is the first album for which we deliberately wrote exclusively Therion-type hits." The result is a great collection with eleven epic songs that contain everything that makes this band. With their 17th studio album "Leviathan", the pioneers of symphonic metal set out for new heights in January 2021: Number 8 in the British rock and metal charts, number 11 in the German and 12 in the Swiss charts speak for themselves. But that's not all: "During the songwriting process for Leviathan we were very inspired. After a rather thoughtful start, we finally came up with about 40 songs. Enough material for Leviathan I, II and III", the musician tells. So album number two will follow already this year and Johnsson promises: "'Leviathan II' will be darker and more melancholic than its predecessor." On the "Leviathan II Tour 2022" the super-experimentalist and his dark players will once again guide you with breathtaking progressive neo-classical creations into a spiritual world of abstraction, far away from any, human rationality. Immerse yourself and enjoy!
