Therion is currently celebrating the band's 25th anniversary and will release new album "Les Fleurs du Mal" (reviewed here) tomorrow in North America via End of the Light Records.

Today GuitarWorld.com is hosting an exclusive stream of "Les Fleurs du Mal" in its entirety right here. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"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."
