Singer LORI LEWIS Gets 'Permanent' Status In THERION

AESMA DAEVA singer Lori Lewis has officially joined Swedish progressive/experimental metallers THERION as a "permanent" member. THERION mainman Christofer Johnsson states, "[Lori] has been a fantastic partner of the band being a great friend and making the best operatic performance known to the metal world for several years. Now she will also be an active part of the creative process behind the making of our future releases. We know fans will agree when we say she is one of a kind and have a natural place in the band now and in the future."

Lewis hails from Salem, Oregon and has spent time on the road with THERION as part of the "Gothic Kabbalah", "20-Year Celebration" and "Sitra Ahra" tours. She is also a member of AESMA DAEVA, a band that toured with THERION in Canada and the USA in 2005. In October 2007, Lewis performed with both bands on the U.S./Canada portion of THERION's world tour (AESMA DAEVA supported THERION).

THERION's latest album, "Sitra Ahra", was released in North America on October 26, 2010 through Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was mixed at the legendary Polar Studios in Stockholm by Lennart stlund (LED ZEPPELIN, ABBA). The cover artwork was created by Thomas Ewerhard, who worked on all of the band's most recent releases in addition to collaborating with EDGUY, AVANTASIA, RAGE and HAMMERFALL, among others.
