Stygian Crypt Productions and Possession productions presents!
For almost 30 years THERION deserved a tribute album like no one else. Not because the fact of their existence or decades on scene, but at least for creating a genre "symphonic metal".
Surely, dominating keyboards and female vocals were used in metal before THERION, but it was they, who approached it in a big way and could masterfully unite a magnificence of symphonic orchestras, classical operatic vocals and heavy guitar riffs. 'Theli' and its successor 'Vovin' are the cornerstones of symphonic metal that inspired many musicians to play this music, which led them to success.
With delight, we are happy to announce that we again joined forces to make an epic release. Deep adherence to the music of the Swedish Beast from Stygian Crypt Productions and immense respect for the totality of His dark lyrics from Possession Productions led to the incarnation of this amazing limited 2CD Digibook.
This album restored "historical justice" and gives tribute to the masters of the genre that keep their own unique style while performing as their songs, as also diverse covers from Abba to Manowar (let's not also forget about the whole album that covers various songs from French 60-70s estrade).
