After the huge success of 1998's Vovin, Swedish masters Therion release a compilation featuring new songs, new versions and live rendition of some of the hits. The release of Crowning of Atlantis in 1999 is an unusual fact in Therion's discography.

While the formula of mixing new tracks and old songs rarely achieves anything glorious, Crowning of Atlantis is an exception to the rule. With probably their best song up to that point with the new and improved version of 'Clavicula Nox', interesting covers of Manowar, Loudness and Accept and three grand brand fresh compositions, this album proves to be an essential in the band's discography.
