Swedish sympho metal act, Therion will play in Zagreb again. On Monday, 5th of March, Therion will present their masterpiece metal opera called “Beloved Antichrist” which they announced as a once in a lifetime experience. The piece was partly based on and inspired by Vladímir Soloviov’s “A Short Tale Of The Antichrist”, written in the year 1900. The performance will include a combination of choir singing, operatic solo singing, and of course the Therion trademark, symphonic section which combine classical music with metal, making this a unique set.
Therion was formed in 1987. as a death metal band but over the years, the band has transitioned to symphonic metal and now they are proudly presenting their metal opera, their magnum opus. The song lyrics are inspired by mythology, the occult, and also ancient tradition. In 1996, Therion started their climb to the top of the metal scene, by changing their style to then novel symphonic metal, combining metal sounds with classical music, with the release of the album “Theli”. The album featured many classical instruments and choirs, which added a new dimension to the band. From that point, founder and main songwriter Christofer Johnsson and his bandmates worked on incorporating more classical motives into their music, while staying loyal to their roots. Their most successful album, Vovin, was released in 1998, and sold over 150.000 copies in the first couple months of release.
Therion have since done 8 more studio albums and their live performances have become known around the world, where apart from the brilliant on stage musicianship, the scenery and the theatric atmosphere creates an amazing experience.
Supporting Therion on this tour are Moscow based sympho-metal act Imperial Age, who will promote their third album called „Legacy from Atantis“. Imperial Age has massive stage presence and they combine heavy metal with symphonic parts, akin to Therion, but also Nightwish, Rhapsody, Manowar or Avantasia.
Opening for the band are German Null Positiv. They brand themselves as alternative metal with a prominent female vocalist. Their second album “Koma“ is in stores now.
