THERION: 'Temple Of New Jerusalem' Lyric Video From 'Beloved Antichrist' Rock Opera
December 20, 2017
On February 2, symphonic metal pioneers THERION will finally release Christofer Johnsson's monumental brainchild "Beloved Antichrist", a sweeping rock opera loosely inspired by Vladímir Soloviov's "A Short Tale Of The Antichrist". The entire piece reaches an impressive length of three hours. The dramatic and epic opus comes to life through 27 different character roles, performed by long-time band members like Thomas Vikström, Lori Lewis and Chiara Malvestiti, amongst many others. The cover artwork was designed by Thomas Ewerhart and can be seen below.
THERION has just unveiled the album's first single, the impressive chapter "Temple Of New Jerusalem" from the second act of the opera. Watch the lyric video below.
