THERION : About The Russian Novel That Sparked Christofer's Inspiration




THERION | CHRISTOFER SPEAKS OUT ON WHY HE CHOSE THE NOVEL 'SHORT TALE OF THE ANTICHRIST' AS INSPIRATION FOR HIS OPERA


On February 9th, THERION can finally unveil their monumental opera project, Beloved Antichrist, presenting a complex story with 27 different vocal roles and a playing time of over three hours! Today, the band launches their second album trailer, in which band leader Christofer Johnsson explains why he chose Vladimir Soloviev's "Short Tale Of The Antichrist" as initial inspiration for his story and how his own plot differs from the one in the philosophical Russian novel.

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…
