Therion / Luciferian Light Orchestra

Live Review

Venue: London Islington Academy

Sweden’s theatrical metal troupe enthrall Islington

If the name LUCIFERIAN LIGHT ORCHESTRA [6] suggests a Satanic ELO, then the truth is slightly heavier. Led by Therion founder Christofer Johnsson, the sound is darkly symphonic metal with hints of 70s Uriah Heep and Mk II Deep Purple. This might seem intriguing, but the reality is a little dull, although Taste The Blood Of The Altar Wine and Dante And Diabaulus offer promising quality.
