THERION - Sirius B CD
Regular price €7.99
One of the two classic Therion twin albums from 2004, is definitely one of the best in their career! A must listen for any Symphonic Metal enthusiast! There are very few bands in which you can trust blindly, Therion is one of them. “Sirius B” in one of the twin albums released by Therion in 2004, and in the same way than “Lemuria”, this album is a clear proof that Therion has left its “barbarian” beginnings to move on into something more mature and more harmonic, and of course a lot more symphonic. “Sirius B” is definitely the calmed and symphonic brother of this couple of albums, it’s just great. Let’s check out it. “Sirius B” is a lot longer than “Lemuria”, lasting for about 57 minutes, resulting in the longest songs included in both albums: seven of the eleven songs of this album are longer than 5 minutes, and the longest is over 7 minutes long. But, if you think that a very long song is boring, you’re wrong: all the songs are very interesting. But, while “Lemuria” is aggressive, “Sirius B” is slower and involves the orchestra and the operatic chorus a lot more than its twin. This can only result in very beautiful songs, with very beautiful lyrics. I call this album “The Eastern Twin” because the lyrics of the songs talk about eastern mithology, journeys to that part of the world, and local legends from there. Each song is different from the others, of course, with the exception of two songs that can be treated as one: “Kali Yuga”. This situation is also found in “Lemuria” with the song “Three Ships of Berik”. For example: “The Blood of Kingu” is a very aggressive song with very long lyrics, and “Sirius B” is a very slow, dark song with only two words as lyrics; “Call of Dagon” is a very simple song with an ethereal atmosphere, and “Voyage of Gurdgieff (The Fourth Way)” is a very complex song with a difficult rhythm; “The Wondrous World of Punt” is a slow, symphonic and very beautiful song, and “Son of The Sun” and “The Khlysti Evangelist” are fast and aggressive songs.
