2 stars First of all, Therion must not be among progressive metal bands. Although i like this album, they are not actually capable musicians... However they know how to be effective and add some sort of spirit to their technically weak music. One thing i can appreciate them about is that they are not self-inspired if we look to all their albums...

Vovin is perhaps my favourite Therion album. Real orcherstral vocals add great atmosphere to the music. Instrument sounds and playing is also satisfying, except some horrible guitar riffs. Oh man, he does not know how to play the guitar! (Of course the guitarwork in Vovin is not as terrible as in "Deggial".) But if we ignore this, i enjoy the strings especially in Draconian Trilogy.

Finally, Therion does not deserve to be named as Progressive!!! (how can a band named progressive, if it creates -without much diversity- no more than 30 melodies in a whole album? )
