ICYMI: Therion unveil “Codex Gigas” video

Posted by on November 3, 2022


The second of the Swedish symphonic metal outfit, Therion’s third ambitious Leviathan chapter, Leviathan II, was released this past Friday (28th). In case you missed it, to celebrate the new album’s arrival, the group has shared a video for the song “Codex Gigas.” 


Mastermind Christofer comments: 

“One day I was thinking about epic doom metal and wondering if it is harder to write a ”hit song” in that genre, or if it’s harder in regular metal. I’m a huge fan of Candlemass, and in my opinion, I haven’t heard any other band match their hit songs in the genre. So, I decided to try to find out for myself how hard it is. Of course, I had to involve Thomas in the writing process, being an ex-CANDLEMASS singer. The result was ‘Codex Gigas”’, a CANDLEMASS -inspired THERION doom song. If it’s a hit or not will be up to the fans to judge.”
