This show is certainly one of the most beautiful things that the world could have.
Anelise T. Santos
Therion's previous DVD, "Live Gothic", brought out the metal in full force; it featured metal music with classical influences.
Peter Anderson
It's worth buying for fans of symphonic and opera music as well as symphonic metal fans.

While being a live album this isn't exactly a "live album". The first disc for example is completely new material. This is the album that the fans have been asking for for years. We all wanted to hear Therion play with a live symphony and we finally got what we wanted and it hasn't created much buzz.

The Project:

This was a very difficult project to pull off. Therion does not sell millions of albums like Metallica. Therefore it really wasn't in the budget to do a lot of rehearsing. They also did a previous show that didn't come out very well, so they didn't release it and instead did a second live with symphony show which became this set (some of the other show is on the bonus material on the DVD).

It's not the band that messes up, but they don't perform on the same level as they do on other live releases (they appeared nervous when I first viewed it then later it was confirmed the band members themselves admitted this). There was a lot at stake its understandable. They were out of their element. For example the drummer Petter had never played electronic drums before but had to do so on this show because his normal drum set would be too loud. On the first attempt at this the symphony could not keep up with the band so they ended up playing out of time and such on certain parts even though the band did their best to correct it and then Therion's lead guitarist started slipping up on some part. Which despite a lot of good parts the first show was a total disaster.

They changed a few things on this performance. Therion brought their own singer- Lori Lewis. She is educated and trained to sing Classically but also has a lot of symphonic metal experience. She is relatively new but is quickly becoming one of the biggest names in symphonic metal.

Therion's release, "Miskolc Experience", contains two CDs and a DVD. With a surround sound system, the DVD is great for enjoying Therion both aurally and visually; and one of the things that's great visually is to see the orchestra and choir. Now, Therion's songs have always featured orchestral accompaniment, even in their previous DVDs, but the orchestral accompaniment was always a pre-recorded backing track played in tandem with the live band. And, the massive choir used on the CDs was reduced for the road to a smaller group of four to eight singers. So it's great to see that we have the real deal here - Therion with orchestra and a full choir!

There are two halves to the concert (corresponding to the two CDs.) The first half features already existing classical music which is given the Therion treatment. The second half of the concert features Therion compositions, generally their longer, more classically-oriented and sublime pieces.

I especially enjoy the first half of the DVD (disc one of the CDs) as it is all new material. I'm always happy to hear new Therion music. And it is definitely Therion music as the rhythm is intense and the overall feel is metallic, even though what is being played is actually classical music. The choir adds depth and grandeur (listen to "Vedi! Ie Fosche Notturne Spoglie" to see what I mean.) Operatic soloists are sometimes used along with the choir, to great effect as well (check out "First Part of Herbei! Herbei!" for example.) The second half of the DVD, with Therion compositions, is also excellent with the drama and excitement of the symphony and choir fully realizing the scope and grandeur of Therion's music.

This show is certainly one of the most beautiful things that the world could have. Awesome classical songs, and we don't have to say anything about Therion songs! Brilliant Orchestra, everything is brilliant!

I went to Hungary specifically for the concert. Once in a lifetime chance. Flew to Budapest and drove from there to Miskolc. Met the band in a small bar/cafe. The concert was in a old Soviet style hockey rink but it was amazing. The audience, the band, and the orchestra were so polite and integrated and complemented each other smoothly throughout the two part concert. It was a joy.

Hungary was going through an interesting period. The economy was picking up and everyone was cheerful and optimistic. It didn't last though as it was built on borrowed money and later times got tough, So this concert was performed in a magical window that is reflected in the performances. If you can remember a favorite concert you went to in the 60's you will understand.

I bought about 6 of these packages for presents. It's that good.
