It starts of much like a Heavy Metal album but starts to go more and more symphonic and calmer and the end is like almost just Opera style metal.
Into Rememrance is one of my top 5 songs of Therion of all their discography though.

Wow, I didn't think it was possible to make an artwork uglier and cheesier than the one of the Theli album
Well to be honest Metallica's latest album proved me wrong first before I discovered this one... But for sure this one wins the prize!
