Therion will release their new record Leviathan II on October 28 and is now streaming their new, obviously operative single "Pazuzu." Guitarist Christofer Johnsson reveals the song was originally written for another artist, but eventually made its way back to being a Therion song.
”'Pazuzu' is a song originally written for another artist, but in lack of a positive answer on acceptance of the song, we decided to rewrite it for Therion instead," said guitarist Christofer Johnsson. "So style-wise it’s almost like a cover song on another artist – but still written by Therion. The song contains some powerful guest vocals from Eclipse singer Erik Mårtensson, in my mind the 'Blackie Lawless of AOR', definitely one of my fave singers from the last decade of new bands."
