Annotation

This is a rock opera written for the stage. It’s like Jesus Christ Superstar – you can buy it on CD, but it was written to be performed live and 90% of the people who go out to see it don’t even have the CD of the musical. »Beloved Antichrist« is directed towards a mainstream audience. Our fans may not see it that way, but that is the intention and purpose. But saying that, the 3 CDs contain way more material that sounds like classic THERION than that on a regular album, so our fans could think of it as getting a new CD + two more different sounding CDs as a pure bonus
