This was the first album I had heard from Therion back in 2005 starting with the song 'The Rise of Sodom and Gomorrah' and has remained my favorite album from them to this day.
Johnsson noted that Vovin was practically a solo album as it used mainly studio musicians, besides Eriksson, who provided some guitar support.
Vovin was recorded at Woodhouse Studios involving a real string orchestra for the first time and a choir including Austrian singer Martina Hornbacher and British vocalist Sarah Jezebel Deva.
The album was released in 1998, and in two months, sales had reached 150,000 in Europe alone.
