I've just started listening to Therion's new album Gothic Kabbalah. No opinions on the album as such yet (shit like this tends to grow on you, and I've learned my lesson about prejudging albums based on the first listen :P), but I do have an opinion on the first two tracks.

Track number 1 - Der Mitternachtslöwe (tyvm) - begins with an intro eerily familar to fans of Def Leppard. It sounds very similar to the intro to Action (one of the best songs off Retroactive) which in itself is a cover of a Steve Stevens track.

Track numero dos - Gothic Kabbalah - introduces itself with a riff very similar to Megadeth's Angry again. It then spins off into some pseudo-celtic-flutesy-folksy tune.. but nevertheless..

I have nothing against this btw.. on the whole, I find that stuff like this makes things more interesting..

Anyways, props to whoever ripped this album and posted it on the web.. Thank you mr. fucking retard for messing with the equalizers :/ Gah!
