On February 9th, symphonic metal pioneers THERION will finally release their three-hour-long opera project Beloved Antichrist. After unveiling the opera’s plot, characters and the differences to the Russian novel it is loosely based upon, band leader Christofer Johnsson now discusses the intense writing process of this massive composition and what he always liked – but also disliked – about classical operas and modern musicals.

THERION will embark on a pan-European tour shortly before the new album release, which is taking them to 25 different countries, where they will perform both new and classic hits. Catch the symphonic metal titans on one of the the dates below:
