The CD was mixed at the legendary Polar Studios in Stockholm by Lennart Östlund (LED ZEPPELIN, ABBA).

THERION mainman Christofer Johnsson previously stated about the upcoming CD, "Expect something spectacular, even by THERION's standards!"

THERION recently recruited Christian Vidal from Argentina as the band's new guitarist.

Vidal made his live debut with THERION on June 4, 2010 in Mexico City.

Christian Vidal was born in Zarate, Buenos Aires and he first started playing guitar at the early age of eight. In 2007 he became part of THE ROAD VULTURES, a band that was formed with the purpose of backing former MR. BIG vocalist Eric Martin.

In 2001, Vidal formed the heavy metal act CUERO along with former KAMIKAZE vocalist Enrique Gomez Yafal. CUERO completed several tours of Argentina and participated in a METALLICA tribute album.

Christian released a solo album, "El Viaje", in 2005. The CD featured a mix of instrumental rock with different native Argentinian styles like folklore and tango.

Christofer Johnsson announced in May 2009 that vocalist Thomas Vikström (ex-CANDLEMASS) had become a permanent member of THERION.

THERION's new rhythm section is comprised of Johan Koleberg (ANIMAL, ZAN CLAN, LION'S SHARE) on drums and Nalle "Grizzly" Påhlsson (TREAT, ZAN CLAN, VINDICTIV) on bass guitar.

THERION's latest CD/DVD, "The Miskolc Experience", was released in June 2009 via Nuclear Blast Records.
