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 ! 🙂

My Last Live Performance with THERION

I did my last live performance with Therion at Brutal Assault Festival, Czech Republic August 7th 2019. I made the final decision a couple of months ago, so everybody in the band and the crew knew this was gonna be my last appearance on stage with them. The reason is that the long touring is

PSYKISK OHÄLSA – Del 2

Eftersom mitt inlägg om Psykisk Ohälsa drog till sig så pass mycket uppmärksamhet så fortsätter jag nu här: ….så vad hände sen då egentligen ? Hur gick egentligen efter det att ”mitt pussel” var färdiglagt ? Och vad kan man dra för slutsatser av det hela ? Jag vet inte till 100% men det spelar

Mental illness – My Story

Much too often I meet people who feel psychologically bad. Those are people who really do have a good life practically, economically etc ….. but still they feel bad, suffering from anxiety or depression. What is really ”required” to feel good ? Or maybe just to allow yourself to feel good? It can often be
