Review: Therion – Live Gothic [2008]

amazon-therionBeloved Swedish symphonic metal pioneers Therion celebrate their innovative career with LIVE GOTHIC, a twin-disc set with a bonus DVD of a live performance from 2007’s Valentine’s Day show in Poland. Leaning heavily from the band’s most recent studio offering (GOTHIC KABBAALAH) while throwing in a good amount of old material for the masses of long-time fans, this incendiary act turn in their trademark sterling performance, encompassing 22 tracks of regal heavy metal loaded with operatic vocal majesty thanks to the two male/two female tandem employed for this recording. Mainman Christofer Johnsson once again releases another stunning exhibition of metal excellence, superbly filmed and sounding as powerful as ever. If you’re a fan of bands like Nightwish and Epica, you need this release in your collection. -Mike SOS
