The Swedish group "Therion" is known to real metal fans, because in fact it has no analogues among the performers of the world stage. Unique stylistic indicators, with nothing comparable musical sounding, a non-standard creative way ... It's worth it to hear and see!
April 15, 2018 meet in Kiev, the legendary group "Therion"!
In 2017, 30 years have passed since the founding of the musical group "Therion". The name of the collective is translated as "monster". And indeed their compositions are "monstrously" unique and strong. It would seem that nothing surprising, that for so much time the composition of the group has changed many times. But in fact, the constant member of "Therion" was and remains only one person - guitarist Christopher Jonsson. He is also the main composer of the collective.
The group is rightfully considered the founder of symphonic metal, still not giving up positions and a key performer of this style in the world. When composing compositions, a large number of musicians are involved: opera singers, choirs, whole orchestras ...
The motifs of the lyrics of the songs "Therion" are mythology, religious and mystical teachings of the peoples of the world. For example, one of the permanent themes are the beliefs and traditions of ancient Scandinavia, Greece, Egypt, as well as Atlantis and even biblical symbols. The conceptual and incredibly successful "Secret of the Runes" (2001) was dedicated to 9 worlds of Scandinavian mythology.
Performances "Therion" - a real show with medieval decorations, torches and chic scenic costumes. This theatrical performance is worth seeing!
