Therion's "Crowning of Atlantis" was recorded between 1997-1999. the album was released in June of 99. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Therion you own it to yourself to give them a listen. There is no other band to compare them to. Often called stage metal or Opera Metal. Therion don't just release albums they create an entire world arounf each release. You can expect big, bombastic, haunting, yet powerful tracks from this ever changing and growing group of musical visionaries. Crowing of Atlantis was originally to be an EP but quickly grew into a full length album. It is a good example of the bands earlier work, but believe me I say each album stands alone.
