According to a posting on THERION's web site, Norwegian/Danish gothic metal band SIRENIA has cancelled its participation in THERION's upcoming European headlining tour "due to lineup problems." THERION added, "As we're on tour and time is short, we won't replace them. THERION will be playing 2.5 hours with a break in between and there will be a considerably improved stage scenery so there is no real need for a mid act in order to have a full evening going. On top on this there will be special guests and special performances (more info to come on that further on)."

Fan-filmed video footage of SIRENIA's September 9, 2007 performance at the Rock Station Festival in Ankara, Turkey can be viewed below.
SIRENIA's new album, "Nine Destinies and a Downfall", entered the German Media Control chart in March at position No. 54. The album was recorded at Jailhouse studios in Norway with engineer Hans Eidsgard and Soundsuite studios in France with Terje Refsnes and was mixed and mastered at Antfarm studios in Aarhus, Denmark with Tue Madsen.
SIRENIA's video for the song "The Other Side" has been posted online at YouTube.com. The clip was helmed by the renowed Serbian production company I-Code (DEATHSTARS, HAMMERFALL, BLIND GUARDIAN, SCAR SYMMETRY), which previously worked with the group on the "My Mind's Eye" video.
