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.

SOULFLY/CAVALERA CONSPIRACY guitarist Marc Rizzo has set the release date for his new LP ROTATION, in stores March 30th via Combat Records/EMP LABEL GROUP/AMPED in North America, and COMBAT/SPV in Europe. ROTATION is the 4th solo release for Rizzo, following 2004’s COLOSSAL MYOPIA, 2006’s THE ULTIMATE DEVOTION (both released by legendary shred label SHRAPNEL), and the independently released 2010 LP LEGIONNAIRE. Produced by Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Hatebreed, Soulfly, Rob Zombie, Chimaira), and featuring cover art by Melody Myers (Escape The Fate), ROTATION is a blistering showcase of Rizzo’s pummeling eclectic diversity, showcased on album tracks including “Spectral Intensities”, “Thrash Boogie”, and title track “Rotation”, combining Rizzo’s penchant for pummeling, low-end riffs, with thrash-intensive leads and heavy Latin flavor.
