On February 2nd, symphonic metal pioneers Therion will finally release Christofer Johnsson's monumental brainchild "Beloved Antichrist," a sweeping rock opera loosely inspired by Vladímir Soloviov’s "A Short Tale Of The Antichrist." The entire piece reaches an impressive length of 3 hours and the dramatic opus comes to life through 27 different character roles, performed by long-time band members like Thomas Vikström, Lori Lewis and Chiara Malvestiti, amongst many others.
