The second album by the Swiss legends has been variously filed under thrash, black, death, and doom metal, largely because of its immeasurable influence across those subgenres. Bands as diverse as Darkthrone, Obituary and Anathema would be unimaginable without it.Tom G. Warrior and Martin Ain made a conscious leap forward from their debut Morbid Tales, with complex song structures, varied moods and tempos, and even the occasional bombastic horn part. To Mega Therion is a synergy of idiosyncrasies: an unmistakable guitar tone, snaky semi-tone riffs, verbose lyrics, and of course those trademark death grunts.

The album has an intoxicating ancient and occult atmosphere, down to the iconic H.R. Giger artwork. Also, the monolithic Jewel Throne and swords ’n’ sorcery karaoke favourite Circle of the Tyrants will get you headbanging like a maniac. This reissue also includes the contemporaneous Emperor's Return EP. UH!
