The German edition of Metal Hammer magazine recently hit the road in Europe for a few days with THERION and THE VISION BLEAK. A live and behind-the-scenes report, which follows the tour from Germany to Slovenia, can be found at this location (available in German only). Exclusive photos from the tour can be viewed by clicking on "Bildergalerie".THERION's latest studio album, the dual-disc "Gothic Kaballah", was released in North America on February 6 via Nuclear Blast Records. THERION earlier in the year announced the departure of vocalist Mats Levén (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, KRUX, TREAT, AT VANCE), which took effect prior to the band's appearance at this year's Wacken Open Air festival in early August. His replacement in the group is Thomas Vikström, who is best known to metal fans as the voice behind CANDLEMASS' "Chapter VI" album (1992). Watch fan-filmed video footage of THERION's December 22, 2007 concert at Bikini in Ramonville-Toulouse, France (courtesy of "PrinceOfDarkness31"): Part 1:
