THERION have always been a band that have challenged themselves to explore new paths, while remaining true to their musical core values. For their 17th studio album, mastermind Christofer Johnsson and his collaborator Thomas Vikström have created something that has been previously unthinkable to the guitarist and the singer. "We have done the only thing that was left of all the different angles to explore", explains Christofer. "We have decided to give the people what they kept asking for. 'Leviathan' is the first album that we have deliberately packed with THERION hit songs."
True to the Swede's words, the album opens with the catchy and swift tune 'The
Leaf Of The Oak Of Far' featuring female and male antiphonal singing as well as a choir that seems to have evolved straight out of THERION's breakthrough
full-length "Theli" (1996). This is immediately followed by the obvious highlight
'Tuonela', in which Christofer cleverly underscores this hit-track's Finnish vibe by
employing NIGHTWISH's "metal voice" Marko Hietala. Next up in this parade
of future fan-favourites is the title track 'Leviathan' that offers classic THERION
material with operatic female vocals and a massive choir.
Christofer Johnsson's passion for classic voices, choirs, and orchestral elements
as well as his penchant for epic melodies in combination with rock and metal
shines clearly through the following sing-along ballad 'Die Wellen Der Zeit',
which indicates another nod to German romantic composer Richard Wagner.
"Ever since 'Theli', Wagner has been and will always be at the core of THERION",
emphasises Christofer. "When we started to combine metal and opera,
it was something new and original. Today, symphonic metal has long been a
firmly established genre."
When THERION came into being in 1988 by changing name from the already
existing band BLITZKRIEG, which was founded a year earlier, Christofer had
rather taken inspiration from SLAYER's "Reign In Blood" among other classic
metal albums. At the beginning, the Swedes were firmly rooted in death metal,
a genre which they helped to define, as witnessed by their debut album "Of
Darkness...." (1991). Yet even back then, there were hints of "something else"
lurking beneath the rough surface.
The use of female vocals is another core ingredient of THERION today, which
developed gradually. CELTIC FROST had basically introduced the female element
to extreme metal on "To Mega Therion" in 1985. THERION began with
both a female and male vocalist emulating a church like choir already in their
sophomore full-length 'Beyond Sanctorum' (1992). With Symphony "Masses:
Ho Drakon Ho Megas" (1993) and "Lepaca Kliffoth" (1995), Christofer continued
to developed his trademark sound by gradually drifting towards cleaner
vocals and more keyboards. With "Theli", the Swedes had firmly established a
reputation of pushing the boundaries of metal in the 90s -among such acts as
their compatriots TIAMAT, THE GATHERING, and MOONSPELL that were often
referred to as "gothic metal" at the time.
THERION continued to break new ground leaving inspiration for others to follow
in their wake: On "A'arab Zaraq -Lucid Dreaming" (1997), Christofer further
explored the use of Near Eastern music in metal which he had already begun
in 1992, while "Secret Of The Runes" (2001) dared to have Swedish lyrics
in some songs. While critics were left confused and fans challenged, THERION
were often ahead of their times and vindicated in hindsight. Even the band's
25th anniversary excursion "Les Fleurs Du Mal" has by now overcome the initial
shock the album caused and is only beaten in terms of streaming by the classic
"Vovin" (1998).
When Christofer faced the question of where to go next after the dramatic "Beloved
Antichrist" (2018) had finally fulfilled his musical mission, his answer is
"Leviathan" named after a giant sea monster from Judeo-Christian myth that
has roots in Babylonic lore: THERION have created a giant hit album -and for
the first time in the history of the Swedes, their fans are not asked to explore
something new, but simply to lean back and enjoy the best from their band!
