NTSMS Fave Therion Album!

A chance for the NTSMS membership to speak their minds about which Therion album is the very best.  Please say why your vote is your favourite!

I have them all except Bells Of Doom (some honorary NTSMS members may have this one! :rolleyes: ), which I hope to get hold of one day.  Probably I will be a double-agent at that time. ;)

My own favourite changes regularly between SB/L, Deggial, SotR & Theli.

Today I have voted for SB/L, because there is so much there! Lemuria rules!! SotR part 2 would have been safe, and this is not it!! And all the better too!!

Fantastic to hear Chris & Piotr sing again!!!  :D  :D  Hail!!  Hail!!!

I've voted Lemuria/Sirius B. I hard to say the reason why it likes me so much... Altough both can be considered as an unique discs, really I prefer Lemuria. Mot at first time I heard it, so at first time I was "surprised" by the growls, and Lemuria didin't like too much for these reason; but I've quickly been adapted to this glrowls, and then... Lemuria rise! In fact, the song Lemuria is my favourite, is so difficult to explain what I feel when I heard Lemuria LOOOOUD, alone in my home; I close my eyes and I'm transported to parallel univers...

Second fav song is Siren of the Woods, of course, which hipnotize me too... but this is other history!

I've voted Secret Of The Runes.

First, I had heard Lemuria & Sirius B before SOTR.
I like Sirius B...I love Lemuria and I think SOTR is THE masterpiece. I don't know why I prefere SOTR, maybe I 've the impression that the album is deeper...I don't see another explaination for my vote... :mellow:

Lemuria and Sirius B. It is absolutely a symphonic masterpiece! I like verything about the album. The lyrics, the music, I LOVE the growling vocals and I even love the artwork it is the best so far. Just when I think I´ve heard the best of Therion they supersede themselves in everyway.

HAIL Therion!!!!

Lemuria and Siruis B are simply AMAZING... although I liked Lemuria a little bit more, Sirius B is still a masterpiece... I don't know why, the lyrics, the symphonic voices, the complecity of new songs... everything

Ey Manolo!

Ok, you voted for Crowning... but WHY? If I have made an efford to describe why (and I really don't know how explain me in musical terms), you have to do, too!!

Btw... talking about growls: at first time, I don't like them. In fact, they spoils (IMHO) some great songs of great bands. For instance... I love Haggard's music, but I cannot hear them for a long time by the growls. BUT... how can I explain it? Growls in Lemuria expoil nothing; at the contrary, after hearing them a lot of times... I like, I love this songs. Is soooooo extrange! I know... I'm crazy, I have double personality or something... but is true!! :blink:

Actually, you ARE crazy. :P   - But that's just a general opinion!

Anyway, what is it with growls?  I love some and hate others. why?

Some really "bad" vocals I love: Opeth, Immortal, Children of Bodom, Testament ('The Gathering' & 'Demonic' being Death-ish Metal examples), Deathrow, Gravedigger, Emperor, Coroner, Finntroll, Bathory, Carpathian Forest, Arch Enemy, Forest Stream, etc etc.

But if I like them, why do I hate so many others?  There are loads of Death/Black metal bands that aren't quite right somehow.  And mostly any type of musical genre that ends with the word '....core' (Hardcore, mathcore, anythingcore), I pretty much detest the vocal style!!

Everyone seems to rave about Mastodon at the moment. I can't listen to 'em. Hate the vocals.  There are loads of US bands that make me feel like that.

Hi,

I´ve voted for SOTR because I think it´s the closest thing to true Symphonic Metal so far. It was very hard to choose, though, between Theli, Vovin, Deggial and SOTR. Though I like L/SB a lot I cannot consider it Therion´s best so far.

Cheers!

I think that Manolo voted for Crowning becouse The Crowning of Atlantis and Mark of Cain are PERFECT songs.

I'm the one for deggial !!!
The greatest songs i find in are Eternal return, ship of luna, emerald crown and via nocturna !
I find it is the album with the darkest choirs and style since therion has becomed a symphonic band (since theli) and i love that dark symphonic and orchestral style.

Well I can't really say, since I haven't been able to find Therion albums here. But the one that got me into Therion was Secret of TRhe Runes, so that will always be my favourite.
