Country: Sweden

official website

The band was founded in 1987 by Christofer Johnsson and started off with recoding a few demos and the mini LP in the vein of Swedish death metal. Indeed, THERION began as a very creative Death Metal band, pushing limits of the contemporary sound and grew beyond themselves. In the course of the years, the bands style developed in a quite unique way and between 1991 and 1996 THERION released groundbreaking records, one being more special than the other. After a few lineup changes, making Christofer the only original member to remain, THERION released Theli, which would be the ultimate breakthrough for the band. At this time THERION turned towards a more opera-like, progressive and even orchestral sound which made them famous through the world. And now they're coming to Brutal Assault with a special Theli show!
