Deggial is the ninth full-length musical album by Swedish Symphonic metal band Therion in 2000. As with many of Therion's other albums, Deggial features a choir and orchestra. Unlike their earlier release Vovin, which seemed to focus more on vocals, Deggial's style leans towards hard rock and sounds overall like Vovin with more atmosphere.
