THERION bass player Nalley Påhlsson has issued the following message to fans:
“Hi Everyone out there!
First of all I want to thank all you fans who watched us in Mexico, Germany and Belgium this summer! THERION have a wonderful, fantastic and enthusiastic audience and I enjoyed every second of the concerts!
I´m also very glad, pleased and satisfied about my playing on the forthcoming album Sitra Ahra that will be released in [Europe on] September 2010. I really think this album will be well-received by all of you fans. It´s absolutely great!!
I´m writing here to announce that I am not gonna be part of the [European] tour that will start in October 2010. And the reasons are:
1. I´m alone with my two children and it´s not possible for me to be away for over two months.
2. I´m right now studying and I have to complete my education this autumn.
3. I have lately had a drinking-problem, and to be on tour is not the best thing for me right now.
I´m doing well at home, feeling good and everything is under control and that´s the way I´m gonna keep it!
If everything goes as planned, I´m gonna stay a member of THERION playing on the forthcoming albums and hopefully I will also be able to show up and play live in the future.
We´ll see what the future holds. (?)
I Salute You All!! Thanks!
