The biggest landmarks of the band are often said to be the album ”Theli” in 1996, which invented the new music style opera metal, and ”Vovin” (1998) which was Christofer’s solo album, but released under the name Therion. In 2004 the double release Lemuria and Sirius B was revealed, featuring a massive amount of 171 different musicians and singers.

Christofer about Tronical

“For quickly getting back in tune on stage when needed, this system is very valuable. But having a lot of different tunings like Therion does (E, Eb, Drop-D on one guitar, C# and C, B on another), this system is a true gem both when the guitar tech has to retune or when I do it my self discrete in the background during an intro or while a singer make some introduction. It’s very reliable and once you get used to it, it’s hard to imagine playing without it.”
