Sweden's THERION has revealed more details about their upcoming show with a full symphonic orchestra, choir and international opera stars, which will take place on December 9, 2006 at the Palace Hall in Bucharest, Romania. According to the band, the concert will consist of three parts:
1. Pure orchestral versions of THERION songs. For example, an opera version of "Clavicula Nox".
2. THERION + orchestra and choir perform various famous works by Wagner, Mozart, Saens-Saen, Dvorak and Verdi.
3. THERION play own songs together with orchestra and choir. Of course classics that everyone would expect will be played, but also songs that have never been played before, such as "Via Nocturna", "Eternal Return" etc. Also a version of "Siren of the Woods" scored for real orchestra and with opera singers.
As previously reported, Swedish multi-instrumentalist Snowy Shaw (MERCYFUL FATE, KING DIAMOND, DREAM EVIL) has been named the new singer in THERION. The group's new album, "Gothic Kabbalah", was recorded and mixed in Stockholm by Stefan Glaumann (RAMMSTEIN, EVERGREY, EUROPE) and will be released in January 2007 via Nuclear Blast Records. Snowy shares the vocal duties with Mats Levén (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, KRUX, AT VANCE) and two female singers. A full-blown European tour with GRAVE DIGGER and SABATON will kick off mid-January.
