Vovin (in Enochian VOVIN, VOVINA means dragon) is the seventh full-length musical album by symphonic metal band Therion. It is their bestselling album, selling over 150,000 copies in Europe alone.[2] Even though it was released under the name Therion, Christofer regards this as his solo album, as it was recorded entirely with studio musicians who were not members of the band.[3]
