THERION - Unveils First Single And Lyric Video For The Song From Upcoming Album

Swedish symphonic metal pioneers and undisputable masters of the genre Therion have unleashed the first single and title track from their highly anticipated 17th studio album Leviathan, which is set to be released on 22 January 2021 via Nuclear Blast Records. Balancing ominous atmosphere and powerful, seducing chants, “Leviathan” succeeds in virtually conjuring the mythical sea creature the song has borrowed its name from.

Therion have always been a band that have challenged themselves to explore new paths, while remaining true to their musical core values. For their 17th studio album, Leviathan, mastermind Christofer Johnsson and his collaborator Thomas Vikström have created something that has been previously unthinkable to the guitarist and the singer. "We have done the only thing that was left of all the different angles to explore", explains Christofer. "We have decided to give the people what they kept asking for. Leviathan is the first album that we have deliberately packed with Therion hit songs."

When Christofer faced the question of where to go next after the dramatic operatic metal experiment Beloved Antichrist (2018) had finally fulfilled his musical mission, his answer is Leviathan named after a giant sea monster from Judeo-Christian myth that has roots in Babylonic lore: Therion have created a giant hit album - and for the first time in the history of the Swedes, their fans are not asked to explore something new, but simply to lean back and enjoy the best from their band.
