Symphonic metal titans Therion kicked off their massive almost 60 date headline tour yesterday. As well as playing classics hits from over the last 3 decades, the band will also be performing new tracks off the forthcoming album Beloved Antichrist.

Therion have also released “Bring Her Home” the fourth single off their new album today.

Beloved Antichrist will be in stores on February 9th.

Therion are currently working on the possibility of bringing the entire production to the stage – and while this monumental undertaking still simmers away in the production halls, the band has announced a pan-European tour taking them to 25 different countries, where they will perform some new and some classic Therion hits.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
