The excesses of the production are briefly forgotten as heavy guitar riffs introduce “Typhon”. The first thing worth pointing out, and the only flaw with the whole album, is the packaging. Three Ships of Berik Part 2: The album slows down after the opening tracks, kinda settling into a slow to mid paced rhythm right up until the 8th track: These first two tracks, while featuring the now usual operatic vocals, are unusually straightforward compared to what we have come to expect from Therion. The last two tracks are a couple of gems. This masterpiece in two parts is epic war cinema for your all your senses.

This just proves what kind of band Therion is. Forum user Forum password. After a short bridge with a narrative passage, the track ends with the strong chorus over longing guitar sounds before elegant string passages and emotional flutes kick in.
Theriln of the 4 minute songs here wear thin by the time they get halfway; the few exceptions that you might therio through are sure to bore you to death after 3 listens. The choirs are a bit boring, but the lead vocals they are really good.

Long-time collaborator Piotr Wawrzeniuk is in charge of the male lead vocals in this song and his performance is both epic and powerful. The voice is just perfect to this song. For me, some of the tracks therefore have a feeling of being underdeveloped, something also reflected in their brevity individually and collectively.
These first two tracks, while featuring the now usual operatic vocals, are unusually straightforward compared to what we have come to expect from Therion. The classical music soloists accomplish a great task at delivering an ominous ambience and the grandiloquent choruses simply end the work by exalting the intricate rythms and enforcing the lyrical lines.
On to the music.
Lemuria (album) – Wikipedia
The operatic vocals remain as theriin, sometimes taking the lead, but the end effect has a much more collaborative feel. The music here really reminded me of Sirenia. Thomas Karlasson never fails when it comes to provide interesting topics to listen to. I wonder if they chose to title the album with this song because of no other song title did fit As I indicated in my previous review, Therion is about to release two new albums, Lemeria and Sirius B.
An Arrow From The Sun 5: As usual with Therion, there are no mediocre let alone bad songs.
Personally, I prefer Therion’s faster paced tracks over their slower, more atmospheric tunes. A song divided in two parts is an element also featured in “Sirius B” the song “Kali Yuga” is also divided in two.
Therion – Lemuria – Reviews – Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives
Not your thing, that’s really too bad. But it has a different tone from Sirius- It’s the lighter material, the lesser material, songs of the same era but without the collective effect that their red covered counterparts took to such great heights. The orchestration imbues everything, but is still very balanced. Both releases perfectly complement each other, deliver everything Therion stood, stands and will stand for and are absolute must have releases for any symphonic metal fan.
Here, acoustic guitar accompanies solo female operatic vocal, the song evolving into a delightful chorale. While these were initially released as a twin package, they are generally regarded as separate albums, and are now marketed apart in much the same way as Bruce Springsteen’s “Lucky town” and “Human touch”.

Three Ships of Berik Part 1: Chistofer Johnsson ingeniously injects the choirs into most of the heavy metal numbers. Lemuria has a darker and more mysterious tone and the songs are consistent, short and to the point.
It really makes me happy hearing the story about Berik gathering his forces for an attempt against the Roman Empire. Here, at least the opening tracks Typhon and Uthark Runa still offer a hint of what Therion used to be. In any case the music is great.
This trend would continue on the following studio album. Lemueia art is something that could lenuria reviewed separately. Lemuria opens with a big bang and a big surprise. This album kind of reminds me of how Dream Theater went heavier on their recent release Train of Thought.
