Therion - Vovin
Nuclear Blast

This reminds me seriously of an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. It starts out with a violin opening,
and then the guitars come in to rock. What sounds like a group of males starts singing, followed by
an operatic female singer. This continues in various forms throughout the disc. As the guitar and
synth frenzy rages in the orchestra pit, I can see the vocalists of this band walking, dancing,
twisting and turning across a small stage, singing these words against some sort of medieval gothic
backdrop. I'm sure these aren't the intended images, but oh well, that's life. I can't help but
feel that this tells a story...what it is, I don't know...
