This tour with Therion is not an ordinary tour. It´s the 25th anniversary. It´s the last tour we will do
for a long time. We have just released a “weird & strange” coveralbum in french that some may love and
some may hate…..(?)
The reaction from the fans are very different. It´s the same within the band……
Some of us like it and some may don´t…….
Well, there´s nothing wrong with the music, but is this really what you would call “a real Therion album” ?
Is this what you do when you celebrate the 25th anniversary ?
The answer is No ! It´s against all ordinary rules……
Probably no other band on this planet who has sold in excess of One Million Albums worldwide would do this…..
But Therion does !
Therion is unpredictable !
Some fans are getting a bit confused…….and so are some of us in the band…….
– What will the future hold ?
But it´s also a bit exciting… !! What lurks behind the corner ?
All this is also the reason to why I think Therion is such a great band !
Therion is not just “a band”. Definitely not an ordinary band ! Therion is also a concept.
A concept of the unknown and unexpected.
A bit mysterious ! And that´s how it should be, and will remain I think……..
Nothing should be predictable…….. That´s how our bandleader Christofer is ! And he´s not faking it.
Christofer is one of the most original persons I´ve ever met !
How many bands can survive and last for 25 years, still have success and go on these sort of tours ?
For example in Sweden ?…….. How many ? I´m very glad and proud to be part of this !
To be honest, from the beginning I had my doubts about this new album…..
I didn´t understand the concept and I would rather have recorded original songs…. but I respect
and trust Christofer and his leadership. And though I critisized the project I also always said: “I hope I´m wrong” !
Christofer wanted reactions, so of course I gave him my opinion !
Now I´m slowly beginning to realize that most of the fans seem to like, love, or at least accept it….
and it feels great !
The fans of Therion want to be surprised or maybe even a bit shocked !!?
Take it or leave it ! Here we are ! 🙂
