Comments from Chris

Our 10-years anniversary album. We used songs from the Theli sessions that didn’t fit on that album, used some cover recordings we had done earlier, recorded one more cover, did some Therion versions of a classic movie soundtrack I did as a solo artist as well as a re-recording of the old track Symphony Of The Dead (originally from the “Beyond Sanctorum” album). As a bonus, I also included the original soundtrack.
