Therion announce release of Theli deluxe package and three disc DVD set Adulruna Redivia And Beyond

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 13th January 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

24th February will see the release of two – yes, two – Therion releases. The releases are the deluxe edition CD and DVD of their all-time classic Theli as well as a 3-DVD package (limited edition incl. bonus DVD) called Adulruna Redivia And Beyond.

Theli, which was released in 1996, is Therion’s fifth studio album and one of their most memorable releases. The album features the band’s most  legendary hit to date: To Mega Therion. It also features the band’s ten minute epic The Siren Of The Woods as well as the hymn Cults of the Shadow. The album also made use of two different choirs and guest vocalist Dan Swanö from Edge of Sanity.

The deluxe edition of Theli has three more bonus tracks: In Rememberance, Black Fairy and the Scorpions cover version Fly To The Rainbow as well as a bonus DVD with the entire album performed live.

Adulruna Redivia And Beyond is a double live DVD + bonus DVD, limited edition digipak. The two shows were recorded live in Atlanta in 2011 and in Budapest 2007. The band commented:

The concert recorded in Hungary was a concert on the “Adulruna Rediviva” 20 year Anniversary-Tour in December. The idea of the tour was to play the entire Theli album + a set consisting of songs that the fans had voted for on the band web page. Piotr Wawrzeniuk and our old friend Messiah Marcolin joined in to make this evening extra special. The concert in Atlanta was the band‘s only show in the USA since 2007 and was shot during the band‘s headline performance at the ProgPower festival 2011.

Hell unveil details on their new offering Curse And Chapter

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 28th August 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Risen from their own sinister legacy and having disbanded in 1987, Hell were reincarnated only two years ago with the addition of Andy Sneap to guitars and David Bower on vocals, joining original members guitarist and keyboardist Kev Bower, bassist Tony Speakman and drum machine Tim Bowler. Now the British quintet are about to release their follow up to their 2011 release Human Remains which was released via Nuclear Blast. The sophomore offering, titled Curse And Chapter, will also be released via Nuclear Blast on 25th November, later this year.

Curse And Chapter will also include a bonus DVD offering six songs from the band’s show at The Darwin Assembly Suite Rooms in Derby on 23rd February 2013. As the first lead-off single, Hell will release the Age Of Nefarious. Guitarist Sneap commented on the upcoming release:

We’ve been working solid on the album for the last couple of months between gigs, although we’ve been demoing to a good standard over the last year or so. This time around the album consists of around 50% old material 50% new. We really see this as a band that’s moving forward rather than a nostalgia trip, obviously there’s a lot of history within the band, but there’s also a whole world of ideas we want to get out. We have this week left tracking, 4 more vocals and bass to get down, 2 more songs of guitar and then mix. I’m super happy with how things are shaping up, it feels more like a band on this record to me than the first, which I guess is just a natural progression of everyone playing together a lot more over the last couple of years.

Vocalist David Bower added in, regarding the lyrical content:

Alongside some of our favourite themes of historical, political and religious persecution, intolerance and prejudice, you will find some good old fashioned myths and legends being invoked and reinterpreted in our own inimitable way. We also have some songs in which the listener will be implicitly invited to solve the clues contained in the lyrics in order to find the meaning of the stories for themselves. Being completely aware that many people interpret things in ways that writers do not expect as a matter of course, it seemed logical to take that idea a little further.

Adding on from that, Bower explains the album title:

It’s a hellish play on words of the English saying chapter and verse, and also a reference to a song lyric in The Age Of Nefarious, the opening track on the record.

Hell will also be playing the Metal Hammer ‘Defenders Of The Faith’ Tour alongside label mates Carcass and also Amon Amarth and Bleed From Within. Dates are as follow:

Nov 12 Birmingham o2 Academy
Nov 13 Manchester o2 Academy
Nov 14 Glasgow Barrowland
Nov 15 Bristol o2 Academy
Nov 17 London Forum
