I am almost ashamed to say this but I have lost touch with THERION. I was there from the very first demo and up to the debut album and then some more but along the way we chose different paths. I have tried to find my way back to the band but I have not managed to do so fully. This is not a proper THERION release. This is a two-part release. The first CD is full of THERION doing covers of bands like Metallica, Accept, Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, Venom and a whole host of others. The second CD is full of bands doing covers of THERION songs. I am not the greatest fan of covers. So I don’t really know what to think of this. On the one hand this is a great release out of curiosity reasons, on the other hand there is the fact that this is a cover album. Looking through the names of the bands that do covers of THERION songs I have to say that I don’t recognize a single one. That speaks in favour of this album. At least there are new bands to discover. As much as I don’t really like covers this is one record I wouldn’t mind owning. Anders Ekdahl
