Editorial Reviews

Ninth album from Swedish death metal band led byChristofer Johnsson. Following the paths of both 'Vovin' & 'The Crowning Of Atlantis', 'Deggial' has an even stronger orchestra section, tightly woven metal intricacies, haunting chants & beautifully execute

Customer Reviews

It does have a nice guitar solo at the end.

I'd never heard of Therion before, but classical music in heavy metal is something I've always liked.
Amazon Customer
Christofer's musical compositions are brilliant.........you notice his evolution as a composer.

I happened onto this band whilst digging around looking for some new music to try. I thought I'd write this review for newcomers like myself...every other review seems to be by somebody already familar with the band.
I'd never heard of Therion before, but classical music in heavy metal is something I've always liked. The reviews looked good, so I picked it up. Two weeks later, I find myself mesmerized by this band. I can't stop listening to it. Everything else sounds bland. Note that the orchestra doesn't back up the band, its directly integrated into every song. But be assured, this is heavy, heavy stuff.
At first, the operatic voices just struck me as weird. I expected an orchestra, but not a choir! Only one song has "rock type" vocals. Everything else is choir. Strange at first, but now it just seems natural. So what is the best way to describe this CD? Intense and Mesmerizing. Play it loud, not loud for the same reasons as you would, say Iron Maiden, but loud so you can imagine you're "down in the pit" at the orchestra hall. Incredible stuff. When the drums hit in O Fortuna, you just can't help but be blown away. Musically, each track is very complex - light years away from 3 chords and simple time signatures. Faves so far - Deggial, Enter vr-ja, and the oh-so-complex Via Nocturna. Flesh of the Gods is a quick break from the orchestration and rocks very hard - starts with a return to straight-a-head rock vocals, but quickly the choir quickly returns. Its a very strange sensation to find yourself headbanging to a choir.
So is this CD dark? Because it was described as as "black/death metal" I almost didn't get it.

OPERATIC METAL! Sounds like a contradiction of terms, doesn't it? Well, I suppose it was until January 21st of 1997 when, to the best of my knowledge, Operatic Metal was born, created, invented, whatever with the release of Theli. The album Theli was the fifth by the DEATH METAL band known as Therion.
This review is about Deggial the fifth release by the reconstituted Therion and the tenth overall. Deggial was released in March of 2000 and is tied with Vovin as my second favorite Therion album. Things are moving along swimmingly. Christofer Johnsson is happy, the record company is happy, the band is happy, the fans, well most anyway, are happy. Of course there had to be a few from the Death Metal days that think, what's that cliche, they sold out. God I wish we could get a few American bands to sell out like this.
As you might suspect, with the cash registers chinging and clanging away that the budgets keep getting bigger and the productions are getting more elaborate. Now instead of classical ensembles, full orchestras are used. The Choirs have also grown in size and prestige. Therion (Greek for Beast)is indeed in a state ascending popularity and that is with a minimum impact from America.
With an Egyptian theme "Seven Secrets Of The Sphinx" is heavy guitars and choirs with a nice balance between Classisal and Metal. "Eternal Return" being seven plus minutes long, goes through several style and tempo changes including an IRON MAIDENsk sounding portion in the middle which sounds really British, even though the rest again is very tranquil and august.

"Therion" is a Greek word that means "Beast". It is used in the phrase "To Mega Therion" ("The Great Beast") in the New Testament, Book of Revelations.
Here, it is a reference to the English occultist and prophet Aleister Crowley who formed a religion known as Thelema, which I presume this band follows. The cd shows a familiarity with Thelemic concepts, and previous work also shows a familiarity with Qabalah, a form of Jewish mysticism used in much present-day mystic and occult religion/philosophy.
...Possibly the greatest operatic metal I have ever heard in my life. Blending metal with orchestral arrangements and opera singing, Therion creates a beautiful sound that is truly haunting. Some people might find the more pronounced orchestral section a bit disappointing. If you're looking for more powerful metal, you might want to pick up some of Therion's oldest albums. If you want more of a balance between the two, their legendary, godlike "Vovin" would be a good choice.
I, however, enjoy orchestral music *and* intense metal. I view this as a beautiful combination of the two, and a demonstration that they are not incompatible in the least, as many people seem to think.
Buy this album and you'll never regret it.

I have a hard time deciding whether I prefer "Deggial" or "Theli." "Deggial" retains the slow-ish pace of "Vovin" with an attention to making the symphonic melodies poignant and tasteful. It lacks the manic speed of "Theli," but it is definitely a heavy metal album throughout, which might not be said of "Vovin." I really like the guitar tone on "Deggial," which has a crunchy stomp. There are some great riffs on this album too: take for example the scorching intro to "Flesh of the Gods." If this doesn't get you banging your head, I don't know what will! Therion is to be commended highly for combining tasteful symphonic arrangements with original, interesting heavy metal riffs. To this date, "Deggial" is a strong contender for my favorite release of 2000.
