Therion Reborn

For 15 years THERION’s leader, Christofer Johnsson, was haunted by the desire to compose an opera and turn his vision of the opus Beloved Antichrist into a reality.

After a long period of commitment, dedication and passion, the project – which includes over three hours of playing time and 27 different vocal roles – was completed and will finally be released on February 9, 2018. Today the band are welcoming in the new year by releasing the second single from the new album. Listen to ‘Night Reborn’ here:

Christofer explains: “‘Night Reborn’ is also one of the more guitar driven scenes in the opera and represents the heavier side of it. In the previous two scenes in Chapter 11, a mystic from the east (Apollonius) arrives to assist Antichrist (Seth). In this scene he shows the crowd some of his miracles.

ACT 2, Chapter 11, Scene 3:
On the top step outside the gate Apollonius raises his hands, causing Seth to levitate higher and higher.
Then Apollonius lowers his arms and Seth slowly returns to the ground. Seth lifts Apollonius’ hand towards the sky and proclaims his name. The crowd cheers.”
