THERION - »Beloved Antichrist« out now! - 2018-02-09

2018-02-09 - "I can see this splendid rock opera garnering the same overwhelming response as THE WHO's "Tommy" or PINK FLOYD's "The Wall" did when they came out. Is it too early to say that "Beloved Antichrist" is the rock/metal album of the year 2018?" (10/10 points)

“Beloved Antichrist” is Christofer Johnsson’s masterpiece. That’s not to say he hasn’t written other great albums. “Beloved Antichrist” takes everything that Therion has done to this point to a completely different level." (10/10 points)
PROGRESSIVE MUSIC PLANET (UK)

„Forget what you thought to know about metal operas. THERION’s »Beloved Antichrist« will blow your mind like the best broadway musicals.”
ROCK HARD (IT)

The wait is finally over! 15 years after band leader Christofer Johnsson first considered writing an opera, THERION's monumental life achievement is finally released. »Beloved Antichrist« is a three-hour-long opera, conceived for the stage, and is loosely based on the Russian novel 'Short Tale of the Antichrist', which was brought to life with the help of 27 different vocal roles.

From today, the 3-CD-album with a running time of over three hours is officially available and can be ordered here: http://nblast.de/BelovedAntichrist

In addition, the band unveils the fourth and last trailer, in which Christofer Johnsson speaks about the stage performance that he envisions and the different options he sees for his larger than life project. Watch the clip here: https://youtu.be/7mdqCwyETdw
