By combining some elements of Lepaca kliffoth with symphonic music, Therion has created one of the most extraordinary and original albums in the world of metal: Theli. This is the glorious album that marked a new era for Therion. I like old Therion a lot, and it is a shame that I will not be able to enjoy more of their death metal stuff, but I am certainly not disappointed with the path they have chosen. Most people would say they have matured, I would say I don’t think so. As I understand it, Christopher Johnsson has always liked classical and symphonic music and has always wanted to play this type of music since years ago, but he could not until he had the budget to do so. One of the things we notice in this album is that the screams from the previous album are no more, Christopher opted for his normal voice and I think that was a good choice since it fits better with this type of music. The word symphony is written all over the album. Choirs, orchestra, and keyboards are all reunited in this album to make each song a really symphonic and pleasant experience. Nevertheless, there are metal elements here like those rocking guitars with some nice solos, and neat heavy guitar riffs like In the Desert of Set. Even though all songs here are symphonic, there is one song that is really different from the rest and that is The Siren of the Woods. It is really gloomy, slow and long – a good addition providing something really different to the album. The first time I listened to this album was the first time I had ever listened to something symphonic, and I really liked it a lot! Theli is an outstanding album with a very original concept. It’s just marvelous.
