THERION - Celebrators Of Becoming (4DVD+2CD)

Sortie le: 2006-05-05

Swedish THERION are one of the most unique and influential metal acts and have been active since the early nineties. The masters of Symphonic Opera Metal now return with “Celebrators Of Becoming”: probably the most detailed and ultimate visual collection in metal history to date! Enjoy THERION on 4 DVD’s and 2 audio CD’s! The band was formed by Christofer Johnsson in 1987 and started to produce several demos and the MLP "Time Shall Tell". THERION's full-length debut "Of Darkness…" surfaced in 1991 and earned the band initial success within the metal underground. Therion started as a creative Death Metal band with ambitions to experiment and expand their sound. The band later developed their style as the years passed and released a handful of innovative albums between 1991 and 1996. After some line up changes – leaving Christofer as the only original member– THERION released "Theli" in 1996, which is regarded as the band’s breakthrough album. At this point THERION were ready to limit their Death Metal elements in favour of more operatic, progressive and even oriental sounds. "Vovin", THERION's best-selling album to date (+ 150.000 copies), was released in 1998. The evolution in sound had reached new heights allowing the band for the first time to use a real symphonic orchestra. Due to anew line up problems, Christofer recorded the CD alone by himself only with the help of some studio musicians and still considers "Vovin" as kind of his solo album. "Deggial" developed Christofer's new invented style of catchy Symphonic Opera Metal even further. With the new members Kristian and Johann Niemann on board THERION set off for their first headliner tour along with Voivod. One year later THERION issued "Secret Of The Runes", the band’s first concept album with themes centred on Northern Myths and deeply influenced by Scandinavian Folk Music. In 2002, THERION celebrated their 15th birthday by recording the live album "Live In Midgard" and shortly afterwards started writing new material that was about to become the double album "Lemuria"/"Sirius B". It entered the German charts on #63, followed by an incredible world-tour, which can now be seen on the DVD “Celebrators Of Becoming” Now THERION have come up with a monster DVD / CD-set that truly redefines the term gigantic: “Celebrators Of Becoming” features not only four DVDs, but also two live CDs. This ultimate set for all THERION followers covers the whole career of Christofer Johnsson and his companions and gives the opportunity to dig deep into the past and present of the band for over TEN (!!!) hours on the visual side, and over TWO hours of live audio material! DVD number one features an impressive live set, filmed during THERION´S memorable 2004 “Lemuria / Sirius B” world tour on in Europe, North America and Latin America. The second disc not only brings the fabulous Wacken 2001 show back to life, but also lets us get a detailed look at the band working hard in the studio. On top of all this, The entire THERION Video collection is assembled here! The last DVD ends this visual onslaught with live performances taken from all the stages of the bands career complete with backstage footage. The double-disc live CD delivers a whole show from the “Lemuria / Sirius B” – tour and complete this deluxe collector`s item. Join the cult! DVD 1 Songs (123min22sec) 1. Blood Of Kingu 2.
