Beloved Antichrist is the sixteenth full-length album by Swedish symphonic metal band Therion. It is a triple album and was released on 9 February 2018 by Nuclear Blast Records. The album has been described as a rock opera by the band, who are accompanied by a large orchestra and choir. The album cover was created by Thomas Ewerhart. It is the band's first collection of new material since Sitra Ahra in 2010, while group founder Christofer Johnsson had toyed with the idea of a rock opera for 15 years.

That said, Beloved Antichrist is more ambitious than anything they've done previously. Its 46 tracks are spread over three acts in as many discs clocking in at 182 minutes. Alongside the septet are 29 individual singers, an orchestra, and a choir. The conceptual musical drama was inspired by and partially based on philosopher and abstract theologian Vladímir Soloviov's novel A Short Tale of the Antichrist. Guitarist and founder Christofer Johnsson conceived, arranged, and wrote the music (with several lyricists).

Remember when Therion was but a mere death metal act? I do. I came in on their 1991 Of Darkness debut, which was simplistic Swedeath with nary a hint of the symphonic metal monster the band would evolve into. By 1993s Symphony Masses the transformation was well underway, with neo-classical influences merged with opera and chamber music. From there the band embarked on increasingly esoteric flights of musical fancy, releasing double albums and 3 album conceptual arcs. After a 5 year hiatus, the madman Christofer Johnsson and his crew of musical misfits have returned in a big way with Beloved Antichrist, a TRIPLE album metal opera with 46 tracks running over 3 hours in length.

Therion – Beloved Antichrist. Posted on January 31, 2018 by Rob. What is 46 songs in length and clocks in at 182 minutes and 26 seconds? Why yes, it’s the new Therion album, Beloved Antichrist. This album is the definition of massive. Three acts split across three discs, making an epic rock opera. Literally of course since Therion incorporates operatic vocals with metal. The album is the first bit of new Therion music since 2010’s Sitra Ahra, though they did release an album of French pop cover songs Les Fleurs du Mal in 2012
