THERION - Blood Of The Dragon
Stygian Crypt Productions and Possession productions presents!
For almost 30 years THERION deserved a tribute album like no one else. Not because the fact of their existence or decades on scene, but at least for creating a genre "symphonic metal".
Surely, dominating keyboards and female vocals were used in metal before THERION, but it was they, who approached it in a big way and could masterfully unite a magnificence of symphonic orchestras, classical operatic vocals and heavy guitar riffs. ´Theli´ and its successor ´Vovin´ are the cornerstones of symphonic metal that inspired many musicians to play this music, which led them to success.
With delight, we are happy to announce that we again joined forces to make an epic release. Deep adherence to the music of the Swedish Beast from Stygian Crypt Productions and immense respect for the totality of His dark lyrics from Possession Productions led to the incarnation of this amazing limited 2CD Digibook.
This album restored "historical justice" and gives tribute to the masters of the genre that keep their own unique style while performing as their songs, as also diverse covers from Abba to Manowar (let´s not also forget about the whole album that covers various songs from French 60-70s estrade).
01 – Fight Fire With Fire (Metallica)
02 – The King (Accept)
03 – Southbound (Thin Lizzy)
04 – Witching Hour (Venom)
05 – Green Manalishi (Fleetwood Mac)
06 – Revelations (Iron Maiden)
07 – Black Funeral (feat. Messiah Marcolin) (Mercyful Fate)

10 – Ivanubis Hollanda – Raven Of Dispersion
01 – GHOST WARFARE – An Arrow From The Sun
02 – ANTYRA – Asgard
03 – REVOLTED MASSES – Baal Reginon
04 – REMAINS – Genocidal Raids
05 – DAY 40 – Invocation Of Naamah
06 – DARK LETTER – Kali Yuga. Part I
07 – WHIRLWIND STORM – Liusalvheim
08 – THEOSOPHY – Pandemonic Outbreak
09 – THEUDHO – Schwarzalbenheim
10 – THE EXPERIMENT no.Q – Seven Secrets Of The Sphynx
11 – IMPERIAL AGE – To Mega Therion
12 – ELIMI – The Blood Of Kingu
13 – NUMENOR – The Riders Of Theli
14 – MARE INFINITUM – The Wand Of Arabis
15 – FROZEN OCEAN – The Wings Of The Hydra
16 – MAJESTY OF REVIVAL – Wisdom And The Cage
Every band in this album not only presented their vision of THERION ´s songs (including quite rare songs, by the way), but also told why they chose exactly this composition.

28th of November long-awaited edition of debut album of Autumn band «And We Are Falling Leaves....» has issued. Extract from press-release:
Ten years ago the first album of Autumn - "... And we are falling leaves" was recorded. It was the most ancient history of Urals doom-metal, the first step in the history of the band - "the golden autumn". That times all over the world doom-metal`s began to grow stronger and to develop some tendencies. The musicians found their own ways of developing the style and now with the help of re-edition of this album we have the opportunity to hear the directions of the way of members of the only one at that period doom-metal band from Ekaterinburg. By the way the first line-up of the band were: Yuri Ketov (guitar, vocal), Sergey Berdyshev (drums), Svetlana Polezhaeva (keys, vocal), Felix Vigorov (bass), Sergey Kunavin (guitar).
Originally the album includes 9 traks, all lyrics are written in English on different topics so this album couldn`t be considered as conceptual one. Re-edition includes two bonuses from unique rehearsal recordings "Wings" and "Feasting The Dark Half" which never were issued before, newer were recorded in some studio and were played exceptionally during live performances and remain by some miracle at friends-musicians. It must be admitted the quality of original was far from perfect so all the material was remastered at CDM Records by Lazar, who made remastering of «Black Wings» as well. Graphic design was made by W.Smerdulak.
In general there`s no more words – the last art of Autumn you know so it`s time to know the beginning.
