THERION: Singer Applications No Longer Accepted

THERION mainman Christofer Johnsson has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"We want to thank everyone who sent their applications for the soprano position with THERION live 2007. We have received tons of applications. Both from hopeful amateurs and professional singers. Tomorrow we will take a decision of who to bring. So from midnight (CET) today we won't be accepting any further applications."

As previously reported, Nuclear Blast Records has set a February 6, 2007 North American release date for the new THERION album, entitled "Gothic Kabbalah". The CD was recorded and mixed in Stockholm by Stefan Glaumann (RAMMSTEIN, EVERGREY, EUROPE) and features Swedish multi-instrumentalist Snowy Shaw (MERCYFUL FATE, KING DIAMOND, DREAM EVIL) sharing the vocal duties with Mats Levén (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, KRUX, AT VANCE) and two female singers — Katarina Lilja on solo and choral vocals; and Hannah Holgersson on solo, choral, and soprano vocals. More information is available at this location.

THERION will play with a full symphonic orchestra, choir and international opera stars on December 9, 2006 at the Palace Hall in Bucharest, Romania. A full-blown European tour with GRAVE DIGGER and SABATON will kick off mid-January. A complete list of tour dates can be found at the THERION web site.
