With over 100+ million streams and a tremendously profitable album launched only a yr in the past, symphonic metallic titans, Therion, haven’t been idle and proceed their epic Leviathan trilogy with the placing new single, “Marijin Min Nar”. Watch a music video under.
Christofer Johnsson feedback: “After we did the songwriting for the Leviathan trilogy, it was principally me and Thomas Vikström that wrote the whole lot. Nalle got here up with one tune and Christian Vidal got here up with one too. However what they lacked in amount, they made up with high quality, as they each delivered a tune that we thought was a good selection for a single.
Singles are normally probably the most industrial songs on an album, as the aim of a single isn’t just to tease the followers, but in addition to throw out a hook to most of the people and see for those who catch some new listeners. ‘Marijin Min Nar’ is completely different in that regard, as it isn’t one of many extra industrial songs. However as a substitute, it’s a ”common” tune that each ourselves, folks at Nuclear Blast, and other people we all know who heard the album all discovered to be one of the vital likable songs on the album. So we thought we’d have a go along with this one as a single.”
With defiant willpower not often present in a metallic band, Therion has at all times and completely achieved what they deemed proper. By no means did they keep on with a profitable components, by no means did they launch the identical album twice, by no means did they offer in to fickle associates like expectations, industrial facets, or tendencies. Which makes it all of the extra astounding that now, 35 years deep into their storied profession, they really do one thing each fan had hoped however by no means really thought potential.
Enter Leviathan, enter a trilogy specializing in all of the trademark parts Therion is beloved by numerous metallic followers across the globe. After the primary half set hearts a flame in 2021, evoking goosebumps galore and reminiscing the glory days of the nineties, the symphonic metallic grand-seigneurs proceed their surprisingly fan-friendly path with their epic odyssey Leviathan II.
“We needed to provide followers what they need this time,” musical professor Christofer Johnsson informs us from his sunny new dwelling in Gozo, Malta.
“Now we have been doing what we needed for thus lengthy that we simply thought it truthful to show the tables simply this as soon as.” Turning 50, you may misread a transfer like this with a sure mellowing of age. You couldn’t be extra flawed, in fact: Johnsson remains to be the musical frontiersman, in search of new challenges and hero’s journey below each stone he turns. Nonetheless, after having completed the insanely refined, elaborate triple album rock musical Beloved Antichrist, even Christofer Johnsson felt he had reached a sure frontier right here. “After Beloved Antichrist I used to be missing path as a result of I had achieved the whole lot I ever needed to do or obtain.” He sat down with lead vocalist Thomas Vikström to ponder their subsequent transfer when it rapidly dawned on them: “The one factor we by no means did was give the followers precisely what they needed,” he grins drily.
