THERION mainman Christofer Johnsson has posted the following message on the band's official web site"
"The album is now released and so far 99% of the reactions have been very good by the press. I haven't had the chance to get some more detailed opinions from fans yet, but I hope to get some of that soon as well.
"I have made around 135 telephone interviews + a bunch over email, so the last two months I have been quite busy with that. Nevertheless I have had some time left to complete the last pieces of the 'new THERION fan club' - The Therion Society (therionsociety.com). Still some small pieces to be put together by Ivo who (as always) is the man behind the cool graphics on the site. One the site is up there will be a chat. However, there will also be a public chat on THIS page very soon, so save your questions. We'll let you know very soon when.
"We have since some months a new drummer called Petter Karlsson and after rehearsing for a while with him, playing both new and old songs, I must say it sounds really good. You can find his biography added on to the Bio section. We have also rehearsed with Mats Leven [AT VANCE, ex-YNGWIE MALMSTEEN] and it sounds really cool, prepare for a different THERION sound un the upcoming festivals and tours! Regarding singers there is also a big change. As you all know Sarah Jezebel Deva have been singing with us live for quite some years. Well unfortunately she will not be able to go with us this time due to some health problems. We are very sad about this, but have found a replacement called Karin Fjellander who is a young Swedish soprano that have a background as a viola player, but who now study classical vocals since some years.
"We have made a death metal project in secrecy called DEMONOID that will be released in July! It is mainly Kristian and Johan's project musically, but I contributed with some riffs, sang on it and made the lyrics. More info on this will be added soon."
