Therion is currently in the midst of the 25th Anniversary tour and will be releasing the new album "Les Fleurs du Mal" on November 27th in North America through End of the Light Records. The band debuted the new track "Polichinelle" exclusively on Noisecreep today at this location.
The album "Les Fleurs du Mal" is a part of an art project that Christofer Johnsson has been thinking about for some time:
"The time was never right for it, but in celebration of the band's 25th anniversary, I thought now will finally be the right time for it," Christofer Johnsson explains.
The album title refers to Charles Baudelaire's (French author and poet 1821-1867) famous poem collection "Flowers of Evil" ("Les Fleurs du Mal" in French) that caused such an upset of emotions in France that the author was brought to court and got fined for "insulting the public" with six of the poems, that remained forbidden in France until 1949 when the ban was finally lifted. The spirit of the project is a tribute to Baudelaire, and is imbued into both music and artwork. The album was recorded at Adulruna studio, located in a separate building next to Johnsson's decadent "Villa Adulruna" where the band lived together while recording.
"Les Fleurs du Mal" is available for pre-order on Amazon.
