" Of Darkness... is the debut album from Swedish death metal act Therion. Therion had released two demo tapes and an EP before the release of this album "

" The music on Of Darkness... is typical old school Swedish death metal with both fast paced and more mid-paced down-tuned metal riffing. The vocals are very brutal growls....Vocalist Christofer Johnsson sounds like he means it and that´s a quality I´m always after when listening to music with growling vocals "

" Of Course..This album was recorded and produced by Tomas Skogsberg and was Recorded & mixed at Sunlight Studio, Stockholm, August-September 1990...So you know what the sound was like...Buzzsaw heavy !

This is when Therion was Good.....Not the gothic Symphonic/Operatic Metal..nonsense they spew out today !

Enjoy another Swedish Classic !

The Bells of Doom Ring !..........Over !
