Swedish symphonic metal band Therion (formerly Megatherion) were founded by Christofer Johnsson in 1987. Taking inspiration for their name from the Celtic Frost album ‘To Mega Therion’, they were originally a death metal band that adjusted their musical style by adding orchestral elements, including choirs, classical musicians and even a full orchestra at their concert performances. As a result, they popularized the symphonic metal genre and some critics regard them as one of the most adventurous bands in metal.

Lyrically the band take their themes from different mythologies and practices, including occultism, magic and ancient traditions and writings. Thomas Karlsson, the head and founder of the magical order Dragon Rouge, has provided lyrics for the band since 1996, when Therion recorded their experimental album, ‘Theli’, which featured two choirs, as well as vocals from guitarist Johnsson, Piotr Wawrzeniuk and guest vocalist Dan Swano. The album was also bathed in keyboards and classical samples, which were labelled the Barmbek Symphony Orchestra after the subway station next to the studio.

Generally cited as the apex of Therion’s career to date, ‘Theli’ fully realized Johnsson’s taste for elaborate, operatic grandeur. In a month, the album had sold more than double that of previous release ‘Lepaca Kliffoth’.

This 3 DVD package features full concerts from Atlanta (2011) and Budapest (2007), including a performance of the whole of their classic ‘Theli’ album, plus a bonus documentary.
