1991年的12月，Therion乐团录制完成了第二张的专辑<Beyond Sanctorum>，并於隔年发行，而这张专辑相较於上一张而言可说有相当的进步，一些新元素如键盘及女音vocal的加入，对於当时的一个Death metal团来说可谓是极少见的，而这样的改变除了一些传统的Death metal迷一时较难以接受外，金属界普遍而言都对这种新方向抱以非常肯定支持的态度，这也正是Therion未来所要走的路。
Comments From Christofer Johnsson:
We begun to experiment with more keyboards as well as some clean male and some female singing. We found out that we wanted to add different elements to our music and in one song we even had some persian (similar to arabic) folk music tunes

Christofer would like to dedicate this record to Erik Gustafsson who was a previous member of the band, I hope we never loose contact even though we live in different countries now.

这张<Beyond Sanctorum>也是2000年重新发布的版本，同样增加了几首demo。就如上所述，专辑中出现了女声和键盘，甚至融合了波斯民间音乐的元素， 比如Symphony Of The Dead（中间的女声和声和guitar solo非常的棒），比如Paths ，我们非常欣喜的看到Therion走出了他们自己的风格。
