SNOWY SHAW RE-JOINS THERION

Christofer Johnsson, the creative mastermind behind Sweden’s genre-defying THERION, has issued the following statement about session/touring vocalist Snowy Shaw:

“We are very happy to announce that Snowy has rejoined THERION. We welcomed him back with open arms, and we will now be making a mix between the new show we had planned and the last one which involved Snowy. We think the merger between the two concepts will be incredible, and we look forward to taking the band’s live performance to the next level.”

In May 2009, Johnsson announced that vocalist Thomas Vikström (ex-CANDLEMASS) had official permanent member status.  Johnsson recently recruited Christian Vidal (ex-The Road Vultures, ex-Cuero) from Argentina as the band’s new guitarist, who had his live debut with THERION on June 4, 2010 in Mexico City.  Comprising THERION’s new rhythm section are Johan Koleberg (Animal, Zan Clan, Lion’s Share) on drums and Nalle “Grizzly” Påhlsson (Treat, Zan Clan, Vindictiv) on bass, who is currently on leave.

The artwork to the new THERION album, Sitra Ahra, is posted on the band’s homepage & MySpace page.  Mixed by Lennart Östlund (Led Zeppelin, ABBA) at the legendary Polar Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, Sitra Ahra will be available in North America on October 26th.
