THERION - A'arab Zaraq Lucid Dreaming

Released on: 1997-05-16

Ten years of THERION - time for a celebration and a special release from this outstanding band. Don't take "A'Arab Zaraq Lucid Dreaming" as a regular new THERION album, as it isn't. Take it as a personal gift from the man behind THERION, Christofer Johnsson. All the material is yet unreleased and adds some new facettes to the multifaced musical personality of THERION, points out the roots of the band and pays tribute to some legendary metal bands like IRON MAIDEN ("Children Of The Damned"), JUDAS PRIEST ("Here Comes The Tears"), SCORPIONS ("Fly To The Rainbow") and RUNNING WILD ('Under Jolly Roger"). Furtheron the album features unreleased tracks from the "Theli" recording sessions, a new version of the THERION classic "Symphony Of The Dead" (from the "Beyond Sanctorum" album), plus, as a special bonus a full classical soundtrack which was composed by Christofer as a solo-artist for the Swedish art movie "The Golden Embrace". And last but not least you'll find some "therionized" coverversions of this particular soundtrack as well, personal comments on every song by Christofer himself and a very nice packaging. So there's plenty of stuff for all the fans and supporters of THERION, for those who followed the band throughout the years and those who have discovered them just recently. GET THERIONIZED!!!!
