THERION frontman Christoffer Johnsson has quit DEMONOID, the death metal band also featuring THERION members Kristian Niemann (guitars) and Johan Niemann (bass). The following statement regarding the matter has been posted on THERION's official web site:

"As a result of too little time, and as previously announced, also wanting to stop singing, Chris has withdrawn from DEMONOID and the band have already found a replacement vocalist. Chris wishes them all the best and has offered the band his assistance in negotiating the band a new long-term record deal.

"There was always different opinions in what direction the band should go in terms of activity. Chris didn't want to play live, while the other guys didn't mind touring if there was time for it in between the THERION projects. So this means you will not only see a new DEMONOID album (when they have time to record it), you will also most likely be able to see them live on stage some time in the future as well."

Johnsson announced last week via THERION's official web site that he was retiring from vocal duties. His complete statement can be found at this location.
