Review by Vanwarp
5 stars Therion is not just another Swedish Metal band, in fact their music has evolved into something so much more elaborate than their early death metal roots, into this astral mix of classical music and opera metal that it is today.

Yngwie Malmsteen was perhaps one of the first classically trained musician to actually mix classical music with heavy metal in the early 80's. This symphony/metal approach has been attempted by many others over the years, though in my view only a few have been very successful at it, namely: Therion, Adagio, Symphony X, Blind Guardian, Rhapsody, Nightwish, Stratovarius and Within Temptation.

To the fans of the genre, Therion's mid-period material since the bands inception in 1990, albums such as 1996's Theli and 1998's Vovin are regarded as embodying some of the best material the band has to offer. Vovin is a lot more varied and conceivably slower than Theli. Therion's metal-ness has been piped-down somewhat on Vovin to leave way for the more softer, more extravagant classical elements found therein.

The album was cut with a full orchestra and symphony choir, offering the listener a rich baronial sound that most not familiar with the genre have yet to experience the grandness of it all. This disc not only mixes choir vocals with orchestrations, but includes a pounding rhythm section and heavy guitars to give the album its' metal inkling. Even the orchestrations here blend in much better than on Theli.

Lead composer/guitarist Christofer Johnsson has taken the basic ideas he first developed on Theli a step further, into classical music arrangements with full blown choirs and orchestration.

Vovin's epic adventure opens with "The Rise Of Sodom and Gomorrah", a solid opening track where the band slowly introduces you to their sound and eventually throws everything at you so you know exactly what you're getting into.

"Birth Of Venus Illegitima" is a more absorbing musical experience. The shifting between the low voices and the higher soprano/alto voices is a very nice touch. Now we're starting to feel like we are heading out somewhere...

The last minute of "Wine Of Aluqah" is so exhilarating.very triumphant! And what to say about the hyper-speed tempo of the "The Wild Hunt" - bombastic from the get go. Both these tracks remind me of the furiousness found on Theli. Two of the most engaging tracks on the album and I love 'em both!

"Clavicula Nox" is perhaps my FAV track on the album. What can I say, I'm a sucker for beautiful female lead vocals and acoustic guitar solos. Slow, atmospheric and beautiful...just an awesome track!

As with "Eye of Shiva", the "Draconian Trilogy" comprising of "The Opening", "Morning Star" and "Black Diamond" all send the listener on a journey through the calmer, more soothing side of Therion, inviting you to float away once again...

On "Raven Of Dispersion", you get a good variety of voices from low soothing male to high soprano female sounds...very nice mid paced closer!

Underneath the choir voices and musical arrangements are metal guitar riffs which prevent the listener from thinking he's at some opera house somewhere?

There is no doubt that Vovin pales in comparison to Theli's bombastic speed-opera. Although I'll agree that Therion is at it's best when the music is fast, but Vovin's magic lies in its slower paced light opera metal extravaganza!

If you are looking for a more headbanging opera metal experience, then the more dynamic Theli is the album of choice. But, if you prefer more variety, from slow to mid paced songs with the occasional furious hyper-speed track, then Vovin is by far the more interesting listening experience of the two. I like Theli a lot, but I LOVE Vovin even more! The emphasis here is on musical arrangements, orchestrations and choirs...and classical music with progressive heavy metal influences never felt so good! :)

2 stars A sub par album ... 2 1/2 stars from me, which I round down to 2 stars. Any Rhapsody album is at least 10x better in terms of musicianship and proper implementation of classical music. There are also many metal bands which are generally considered to be less progressive, for example Blind Guardian, who do a much better job than Therion. It's hard to believe that this is even considered to be one of their better albums ...

The Rise of Sodom and Gomorrah: The intro is not all that bad. But the main theme of the song is so boring and cliche ... really NOTHING to write home about. Add to that the sloppy synchronisation between the orchestra and the drums.

Birth of Venus Illegitima: This song is based on a really plain metal riff that is reminiscent of old Accept or Scorpions. The male choir is totally uninspired and adds nothing to the music. The intro is again better than the song itself.

Wine of Aluqah: The first uptempo track, and although I think that it's uninspired and below-par compared to other bands of the genre, it is listenable - except for the uncalled-for "happy" Speed metal parts.

Clavicula Nox: Interesting track, but the female vocal lines are disappointing both lyrically and musically. The overall atomsphere is convincing, and luckily the repetetive heavy part is quite short.

The Wild Hunt: The fastest track so far, Power Metal with male choirs and a metal singer, which creates an interesting contrast. Unfortunately this is not really progressive, with really tame chord progressions.

Eye of Shiva: Oh those horrible vocals ... whoever wrote these songs either doesn't know much about polyphony, or decided not to use it. Throughout this song, the album and also various other Therion releases the vocal lines, instrumental interplay etc. are underwhelming, because classical music can be so rich and intricate - if done correctly. IMO it's sad that many people consider music like this to be a real "symbiosis" of classical music and metal. IMO it's really just metal.

Black Sun/Draconian Trilogy: Boring ... it's one of the better tracks, like Wine of Aluqah, but again lacks any creativity.

The Opening: A short interlude/segue ... centered around a ridiculously boring and derivative pedal tone guitar lick.

Morning Star: I can't listen to this, it's pathetic. All that I said before also applies here.

5 stars From this album Therion developped further the concept of symphonic metal, and the result is a masterpiece of music in general. I 'm not hearing every day such an album, every piece is where it belongs. The music is something between '80 metal with fabulous symphonyc orchestration. Here we have everything, from slows ones to the fastest ones, that pleases every prog metal fan. The intristing aragements with a touch of arabian music made this album for me to be a 5 star album. The beautiful female vocals on Clavicula nox showes as that Therion is not just another band, but one who needs attention in the future. Here they reach the peak of their creation. Some guest musicians of the highest calibre also did a great job, 2 of them are Ralf Scheepers (ex Gamma Ray vocals, now in Primal Fear) and Waldemar Sorychta (known from Tiamat and Grip Inc.), Who don't have this album get it worth every second og it. Underneath the choir voices and musical arrangements and metal guitar riffs stands one of the best albums of the '90 - Vovin. 5 stars
Review by The Crow
5 stars In my opinion, this album is even better than Theli... A true masterpiece of symphonic metal!

And of course, here is where Christopher Johnsson reached his true personality both in compositions and in arrangements... Because Vovin is almost a solo album. Johnsson is the only important link between Theli and Vovin, and so is demonstrated that he is the true soul of the band, the man behind the project is Johnsson himself... And he took the direction of the band masterfully, making an elegant album, full with incredible melodies, and with a perfect sound. Vovin is, in my opinion, the confirmation of symphonic metal as true genre, and it maybe surpases almost all the albums from this style I've heard.

The mood of this music is different in comparision with Theli... Vovin is less classic heavy metal, and it has less from the 80's influence of the previous (and wonderful) effort, although the 70's feeling of some tracks is still here (Clavicula Nox is similar of The Siren of the Woods in style, and both tracks have some 70's feeling...) But like I said, this album is less heavy, and much more symphonic. The speed of the tracks is slow, with a pair of exceptions, and the mood is pretty melancholic, in contrast with the more epic Theli. But with this elements, Johnsson achieved to make a very original album, even more than the seminal Theli... The obvious influences are gone, and here we have a pure and new thing. Vovin is just unique, and it confirmed Therion like one of the most genuine and influential bands in metal.

Another good fact of this album, is it's variety... More homogene than Theli, OK, but it never gets boring. The album starts with and epic hymn (The Fall os Sodom and Gomorrah), then it becomes symphonic hard rock (Birth of Venus Illegitima), then comes the heavy metal mixed with some power metal (Wine of Alluqah), and after that, the 70's acoustic oriented sounds (Clavicula Nox) gives way to the speed metal track The Wild Hunt... And this is the constant evolution of this album, full with variety, imagination and really awesome music.

Best tracks: all of them... But I specially like Wine of Alluqah (the final power metal part gives me goosegumps...), Clavicula Nox (great dark riffing, and great acoustics...), the Draconian Trilogy, and of course, the best song of this album is Raven of Dispersion (I just love the odd guitars in the verses before the chorus, and the incredibly beautiful ending)

Conclusion: Vovin is maybe the best symphonic metal album I've heard to date... A masterpiece with marvellous sound, great arrangements, and clever compositions. The music is never overproduced or too full with instruments... Just guitars, bass, powerful drumming, strings, and operistic voices. And with this elements Johnsson created the true birth of the Therion style, and the confirmation of symphonic metal like a new way of making music... And what a wonderful way! Strongly recommended.

My rating: *****

5 stars A tear comes from the eye of Shiva

"Vovin" should be looked upon as the follow up to the excellent "Theli", the intervening "A'arab Zaraq Lucid Dreaming" being a convenient gathering together of unreleased material which was gathering dust. The album title is taken from the Enochian word for Dragon, a creature which appears regularly in Therion's themes.

Once again, band founder and leader Christofer Johnsson would completely change the line up of the band, bringing in lead guitarist Tommy Erisson plus a new bassist and drummer. The orchestral and choral aspects were also subject to even greater investment, with operatic soloists being added where required.

The orchestra used here is not yet a full one, that will come on future albums. The string section who are used though, announce their arrival in the opening bars of "The Rise of Sodom and Gomorrah". The song has something of a "Kashmir" feel to it, with a similar rhythm structure, Arabian overtones and dramatic orchestration. The choral vocals however distinguish the piece, which evolves as a true Therion classic. For me, the following "Birth of Venus Illegitima" ticks all the boxes, and stands as Therion's best song thus far. The slightly melancholy mood of the song is brought to its full potential through a surprisingly complex, yet utterly captivating arrangement.

"Wine of Aluqah" is the first track on the album to delve into the Gothic metal of Therion's past, with double paced drumming driving a guitar heavy piece at reckless speed. Even here though, the magnificent female choirs serve to soften the blows. The lengthy "Clavicula Nox", which runs to just under 9 minutes, is a brooding, slightly looser affair, which relies to a greater extent on the excellent orchestration. Listening to this piece, one has to stop and think just how far the band have come from their early days. In contrast, "The Wild Hunt" is an all out dash to the finish through a much more metal orientated, but still operatic, number.

The classical female lead vocal on "Eye of Shiva" immediately reminds us of Nightwish, but the song is generally more majestic than the music of that band. The alternating of a full choir and stunning lead guitar towards the end of the piece may bring a tear to the eye, such is the power of the music. "Black sun" focuses once again on the power metal side, but oh those wonderful voices.

Three tracks combine late on in the album to form a mini-suite sub-titled "The Draconian Trilogy". "The opening" naturally opens the suite in suitably pompous fashion with strings being sawed and floating lead guitars leading to Gothic chanting. "Morning star" is the heavy core of the trilogy, the vocals being darker and moodier than anywhere else on the album. The third part of the suite, "Black diamonds" once again tugs on the emotions, climaxing in a quite exquisite solo violin piece. The album closes with "Raven of Dispersion", an operatic metal ballad if you will, which benefits from a slightly quirky arrangement.

On later releases, a bonus track "The king" is included. This cover of a song by Accept is a more conventional piano based song with female lead vocal. A pleasant diversion, but no more than that.

As is probably clear by now, those who enjoy the music of bands such as Nightwish, Rhapsody (of fire), Within Temptation, etc. will undoubtedly find Therion to be fully compatible with their tastes. With Operatic, Symphonic, "Hollywood" metal such as this, it is the quality of the arrangements more than the quality of the songs themselves which distinguishes the great from the good. For my money, Therion at this point are up there at the top of their class... and this is without a doubt one of their finest recordings.

4 stars Therion had one more great work in them before they turned into a metal muzak producing unit, While Theli marked the end of their creative progression, Vovin is a solid confirmation of their quality standards. Even though the music is very straightforward, the huge symphonic arrangements, operatic voices and pleasant melodies could easily win over many prog-heads.

While every song is most pleasant, the continuous slow place and generic approach bogs down the effect somewhat. The Wild Hunt is the only up-tempo track that stirs things up a bit. Another weakness is that it is really too sweet and smooth all the way through. It's sure done tastefully, neither kitschy nor excessive (which is quite an achievement in this style), but sometimes I'd really like to kick their butt hoping they would put a bit more adventure in their work.

Therion used to be a unique and ground-breaking metal act in the 90's. Vovin easily proves that. But I used to be more overwhelmed by it at the time it came out. Since then it hasn't survived repeated critical listens all that well, I only play it occasionally now.

Review by Warthur
3 stars Having fully blossomed on Lepaca Kliffoth and Theli, Therion then hit a transitional phase as they drained their music of its former death metal influences and worked to put in a more gothic foundation for their particular brand of symphonic metal. The end result is an album I can't help but find less immediately arresting than its two predecessors, though it's a competent enough job and when it does work it's an interesting continuation of this particular musical direction. Still, I can't help but feel that underneath the undeniable polish Vovin is just a bit more vapid than the preceding albums, relying slightly too much on orchestral pretensions without bringing sufficiently meaty material to the table to justify them.

4 stars 'Vovin' (meaning Dragon) is Therion's 8th full length album. Therion's version of symphonic metal has always intrigued me as their music is not just symphonic, but it is operatic also. This is their best selling album to date, however, Christofer Johnsson always considered it his solo album, because he is the only band member from Therion performing on it. All other personnel on the album are guest performers. The choir consists of two of each of the vocal parts, namely soprano, alto, tenor and bass. There are also 2 soprano/alto soloists. All of the vocals are done by the choir, except for one track. The orchestra is The Indigo Orchestra which consists of 2 violins, a cello, viola, a double bass and a contrabass, though at times it seems like the orchestra is larger.

'The Rise of Sodom and Gomorrah starts off with repeated notes from the violins and a bass line created by cellos. At one minute, full on drums and guitar join the orchestra, and a male chorus sings which is soon joined by a female chorus. The orchestra riff is very exciting and fast tempo. Except for acting as a foundation, the guitars let the orchestra and the singers take the lead here.

'Birth of Venus Illegitima' is lead by the rock instruments, but with the choir still singing of course. As far as I can tell, only the rock instruments play on this one except for a short passage around the 4 minute mark. The vocals are more dominated by the male parts.

'Wine of Alluqa' is led out by cello and a tinkling piano, but a sudden burst of energy takes off early with equal amounts of energy in the regular instruments and the orchestra. The drums are fast, like in speed metal. The vocals are dominated by female vocalists this time. There are a few great guitar solos placed throughout the song. The guitar/violin riff is fast and energetic. Great track.

'Clavicula Nox' is a slower and darker track exceeding 8 minutes. Guitar and drums drive the song, and the vocals are sung by the soloists for the most part. A pounding bass accompanies a guitar solo before the choir joins in. The second verse and chorus repeats the same pattern. There is an instrumental break with some nice shared parts with guitar and orchestra. Even though this is structured more like a standard song, it is still quite beautiful and fulfilling.

'The Wild Hunt' is the one song done by any semblance of a lead vocalist, Ralf Sheepers, who has a high-tenor, gruff voice like Rob Halford from 'Judas Priest'. Except for the parts sung by choir, this one is a fairly straightforward up tempo metal song, but it all works very well together.

'Eye of Shiva' has a more mid-eastern sound to it. It is again a slower song, again led out by the soloists, with occasional backing from the choir. Except for a guitar solo at the 4 minute mark, the rock instruments remain restrained through most of this song providing the background and leaving the music to the orchestra and the vocalists.

'Black Sun' starts with a piano solo with help from the strings. The choir suddenly bursts in with a thumping bass and drums. This one is very dark and heavy. This track focuses more on all of the instruments, both the orchestra and the standard rock instruments. It is surprisingly stirring.

The next 3 tracks are the three parts of the 'Draconian Trilogy'. Starting with 'Part one: The Opening', which is instrumental except for a quick choir part with the orchestra and the guitars, no percussion. 'Part two: Morning Star' features a dark male choir at first, later the soloists take over. The music is driven by the rock instruments and the melody is very dramatic with some great vocals. 'Part Three: Black Diamonds' is driven more by the choir with all instruments providing only a foundation except the ending where stings and piano close out the trilogy. I have a slight problem with this trilogy mainly because it is too short and underdeveloped especially for a suite. I just felt the idea could have been better developed.

The last track is 'Raven of Dispersion' which is another dark track with a thumping bass and the male chorus again, later followed by the soloists. There are some strange guitar sounds going on in there, which seem a little out of place. The choir sings the choruses with the viola following their parts. This track seems to be one of the weaker ones on the album, which is too bad, because after hearing this album, you expect a huge ending, but you don't really get it.

So, overall, this is another great album of symphonic and operatic metal that fizzles out towards the end. The Trilogy would have been much better if it could have been fleshed out, and the last track comes off a little weak. Those things detract from a great album, unfortunately, but it still manages to be an excellent album overall. It's still good enough for lovers of this style of metal and lovers of symphonic rock in that it is not quite as loud as you might expect, but it still has enough metal in it to appeal to that crowd.

Review by siLLy puPPy
4 stars THERION emerged from the cauldrons of the extreme world of death metal in its early beginnings and then slowly transmogrified itself incrementally through a series of early albums that resulted into the complete blossoming of an entire new category in the metal universe now tagged as symphonic metal. With its 5th album "Theli," THERION went for the gusto by adding two massive choirs to the metal instrumentation of guitar, bass drums and keyboards and along with some classical programming and epic compositions to paint their musical canvas upon, a new style of metal swept the globe and put THERION on the map. While many metal bands have tried to duplicate this feat including Metallica's disaster "S&M," nobody has done this sort of musical Frankenstein better than THERION.

With a massive tour and a robust work schedule to craft such lofty visions, the pressure found many of the musicians jumping ship leaving founder and band leader Christofer Johnsson to once again pick up the pieces and reinvent his baby with a whole new collection of hand picked musicians to bring his ambitious cross-pollinating musical visions come into fruition. To fill the gap and celebrate the 10th anniversary of the band's formation as well as the obvious cash run, THERION released the album "A'arab Zaraq Lucid Dreaming" which contained leftovers from "Theli," a few cover tunes and the non-metal soundtrack for Johnsson's own crafted indie film. While chock full of interesting musical gems, this was a mere supplemental stop on the THERION highway.

As the sole captain of the ship, Johnsson admits that when crafting the next true release VOVIN, he basically wrote it as a solo artist and merely employed the musicians to record however as the sole songwriter for past albums it is just one of many cases where a single member of a band is actually the true brains behind the project but with the band leaving every album or two it becomes more public and undeniable. VOVIN pretty much continues down the path laid down by "Theli," in this case meaning eleven tracks mixing the expected heavy metal bombast with the symphonic classical instrumentation and choirs. Although basically a solo project in the development process, VOVIN hosts eight guest musicians, another eight members of the choir and still five more members of the Indigo Orchestra who adapted the orchestration.

Thematically, VOVIN follows the interests of Johnsson's fascination with the occult and is more evident once you learn that VOVIN means dragon in the Enochian language which is a language used in the occult and was known to be the language of choice in the journals of John Dee who was a magician at the side of Queen Elizabeth I. In many ways VOVIN takes the THERION sound laid out on "Theli" to its logical conclusion with no expenses spared to craft a lush epic sound that finds the simplicity of classically infused melodies spun into sophisticated orchestrated splendor. The major difference in terms of sound between "Theli" and VOVIN is that the former was much more energetic by delivering those famous Iron Maiden inspired guitar gallops while VOVIN is a much mellower affair slowly drifting by on simmer for most of its running time with feisty metal bombast only occasionally finding its way into the mix such as on "Wine Of Aluqah" and "The Wild Hunt," the latter of which is on full speed metal mode.

Despite the large number of participants on VOVIN it surprisingly sounds sparse and never for once feels like there are too many chefs in the kitchen. While engaging in sophisticated classical grandeur, THERION crafts a sound that finds many of the moving parts in unison with subtle harmonic overtones that create a much larger than life sound rather than engaging in knotty polyrhythms or angular avant-garde excesses. For all the excesses of sound, VOVIN is a very smooth sounding album where each microcosm is an extension of the next and although the metal bombast is set to simmer for the most part, even in the lushest softness of the acoustic guitar arpeggio led segments, the vocals are led by the soprano divas Martina Hombacher and Sarah Jezebel Deva whereas the vast number of others follow suit. A few tracks like "Mourning Star" and "Black Diamond" are pure magic.

Overall VOVIN is a strong album with no bad tracks however it's the lack of metal heft that leaves this one sounding a bit too mellow for its own good. While "Theli" cranked out all the metal fury, VOVIN is set on a more laid back tone and also has more of a gothic feel to it rather than any connection to the death metal roots or even the classic 80s metal sounds of Judas Priest or Iron Maiden with the exception of a few tracks. For that reason this one just doesn't rock my boat like the albums that bookmark it. Still though, VOVIN delivers a stellar cast of seasoned performers who craft an interesting network of metal / classical fusion sounds into easily digestible catchy hooks and after all it's the vocal choirs of THERION that really shine and on VOVIN that is no exception. It's just that with a title that refers to a dragon i'd expect a bit more fire striking fear into the populace below but with the lack of the metallic fury as heard on "Theli" this one sounds a bit too safe for the majority of its run. Still though, other than that slight gripe, VOVIN is a strong instantly lovable album. Think of "Theli" as metal triumphs over opera and VOVIN as the exact opposite.
