Therion Premiere “Codex Gigas” Music Video

Therion have premiered a new video for their new song “Codex Gigas.” This track is from the band’s new album “Leviathan II,” which was released today (October 28). Guitarist Christofer Johnsson commented:

“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 [Vikström] 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.”
