    (Again: credit goes to the official Therion website for this).

    I was lucky enough to attend one of their live shows when they were here in America and I can’t wait to own this set for posterity.

    PS: the official website indicates May 5th as the release date, Amazon has it for a June 13th release. The May 5th date could be just for Europe, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that this item will be released on May 5th here in the States too. Finally as one might expect this is gonna be a pricey set, but hopefully (as always) Amazon will give us a great deal on it, way below MSRP.
    Thanks.
