THERION Announce Details Of Rock Opera

TherionOn February 2nd, symphonic metal pioneers THERION will finally release Christofer Johnsson’s monumental brainchild ‘Beloved Antichrist’, a sweeping rock opera loosely inspired by Vladímir Soloviov’s ‘A Short Tale Of The Antichrist’. The entire piece reaches an impressive length of 3 hours and the dramatic opus comes to life through 27 different character roles, performed by long-time band members like Thomas Vikström, Lori Lewis and Chiara Malvestiti, amongst many others. The band will unveil the first excerpt from ‘Beloved Antichrist’ in single form before Christmas – and today, they present the cover artwork designed by Thomas Ewerhart, as well as the tracklisting:
