Therion - 'Powerdance' (Remastered)

End of day, another sun fades away
Darkness fills the sky
As I enter the night
In the sign of the warrior
Winds of magic
Blow within my mind

There is a sphere deep within my mind
Where I'll become a god
Who will reign a world of astral space

I fade away
Into the voids of the dark
As I dance, powerdance
To my own paradise

Step by step I'm moving closer to my goal
There is no vanity that can stop my final move

"Ανασκαφές" στο death metal παρελθόν των Therion επιχειρεί η δισκογραφική εταιρεία Hammerheart Records και επανακυκλοφορεί (σε cd και βινύλιο) το τρίτο full length album των Σουηδών metallers "Symphony Masses: Ho Drakon Ho Megas" 29 χρόνια μετά την αρχική κυκλοφορία του...

Ο δίσκος των Therion 'Symphony Masses: Ho Drakon Ho Megas'
Δελτίο τύπου: «A Heavy Dark Occult Metal album, spectacular in its uniqueness. Invoke the Dragon! With original artwork.

This is the kind of album that showed the boundaries of Death Metal were not completely explored, as Therion had already partially shown on their previous Death Metal albums where they were one the unique few bands that combined Death Metal with keyboards.

On the other hand this album showed that Therion had progressed out of the Death Metal stage where they had gotten the fame of being original within the boundaries of the genre, while still keeping a lot of the elements that were being heard on the previous effort.

This third album deals with various occult rites and occult subjects, as reflected in the song-titles. The content itself could best be described as ‘Dark Occult Metal’.

It’s not Death Metal, not heavy metal, and not exactly a mix either. This album takes a lot of elements from the previous album, and introduces a number of new elements, a lot of which would return on the following albums.

This is the kind of album that you will like if you like anything symphonic, bombastic, and/or anything with a tad of occult atmosphere. Therion doesn’t need an orchestra or opera singers to sound like Therion. “Symphony Masses” does not need this to sound symphonic in its own twisted way.

You do not even have to be deep into Death Metal to enjoy this little gem. Needed if you like: Sentenced, Morbid Angel, Nocturnus, Amorphis, Celtic Frost, Paradise Lost.»
