* OneOfUs: Mats wears a [[StarWars Han Solo]] shirt during the Mexico City concert from ''Celebrators of Becoming''.

* SymphonicMetal: Obviously.Therion started as a DeathMetal band, but its style shifted gradually towards symphonic metal, with ''Theli'' usually considered their first symphonic metal album. As this page's introduction says, Therion is considered one of the genre's {{Trope Codifier}}s.

Originally formed in 1987 by bassist/vocalist Christofer Johnsson as a DeathMetal band named Blitzkrieg, they split up after only two shows but were soon reformed under the name Megatherion, after the album ''To Mega Therion'' by CelticFrost. Johnsson switched from bass to guitar and the band went through some lineup changes, and the name was shortened to Therion.

* CrystalDragonJesus: "Birth of Venus Illegitima" takes a tale and a goddess from Myth/ClassicalMythology and weaves in explicitly Christian concepts of sin, sexuality, paradise and Hell. In this case, it's done for artistic purposes rather than to file off serial numbers.
