Therion Celebrators of Becoming

As grandiose a production as Therion’s musical gestures, Celebrators of Becoming is part retrospective, part celebration (as its title suggests) and an excellent indication of the band’s huge vision. Four DVDs and two CDs capture Therion live — a headlining show in Mexico City, a set from Wacken, clips and behind the scenes footage from numerous stops around the world — in the studio, in professional videos, in rare bootlegs and on the soundtrack of a short art film. The collection is a great package, documenting the band’s growth and success, which shines clear on the faces and in the voices of Therion’s Mexican and South American fans.
