OSIRIS-TYPHON UNMASKED is a must purchase for all those metalheads that prefer to enjoy their dose of Black Metal with some great harmonies, those who like it symphonic and atmospheric and are indeed able to give lots of credit for a great production. This is no bullshit, garage sounding Black Metal recorded by a shitty 4-track recorder, so stay fuckin´ away from this excellent album, both song and production-wise, if that fact disturbs or irritates you somehow. This album offers just more than ´trolls´ for you.
Behemoth is a Polish blackened death metal band from Gdańsk. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground, alongside bands such as Vader, Decapitated, Vesania and Hate. Over the years Behemoth has moved from traditional black metal into blackened death metal and then into modern death metal with each consecutive release. Until the late 1990s, the band played a traditional black metal style with heathen lyrical content, but soon changed to that of occult and thelemic themes written by their lead vocalist Nergal and Krzysztof Azarewicz. With the 1999 release of Satanica, the band demonstrated their presence in the death metal scene, while retaining their own signature style characterized by the drum work of Inferno, multi-layered vocals and Middle-Eastern influences.
21 tracks. Joe Dassin, Edith Piaf, Patricia Kaas, Dalida, Mireille Mathieu, Yves Montand, Mylenne Farmer, Charles Aznavour, Desireless, Johny Hallyday, Adamo and more, and more..
Therion is a Swedish symphonic metal band founded by Christofer Johnsson in 1987. The word 'therion' comes from the Greek therion (θηρίον), meaning 'Beast,' i.e., that of the Christian Book of Revelation. However, the band's name is a homage to the Celtic Frost album To Mega Therion. Beginning as a death metal band, they later turned to combining orchestral elements with their metal music, employing heavy use of choirs and classical musicians, not only as additions to but also as integral parts of the composition. Therion is the first metal band with fully live orchestra featured. It is also the band which originated, popularised and influenced the symphonic metal genre, cited as 'the most adventurous metal band at present'. Because of these extents they take in conducting their music, they have been dubbed as 'Opera Metal'.
