THERION – Miami January 20-22

The rehearsals at Villa Adulruna went smoothly !
We now have our new soprano Isa with us now. She´s a great singer and also a very, very nice and humble person. Really easy to work with ! 🙂


Up at 03:30 am to take a shower and check all of my stuff before leaving. We met at the central-station in Stockholm and went towards Arlanda Airport. It was a pleasant flight but pretty strange that we got dinner at breakfast and breakfast for dinner !??

Arrived to New York. There, before we went on the next plane to Miami an officer took a sample from my hand and put it in a machine……..and for some reason the result became that ”I could probably have some explosives with me” !!?? They had to check me and my luggage 3 times and I had to go to an office to answer questions about my travelling and so on…… but they were nice and only did their job….. I came to the gate in the last minute – and we were on our way to Miami.



It´s really hot and humid here. In the afternoon it was around 26-27 degrees celsius. Me and Johan shared room. I slept a lot, had a good rest and just relaxed ! Wonderful ! 🙂

The day after we also had a relaxing day.
It was Thomas´birthday so in the evening we sat by the hotel pool and had a good time talking and then we went to a sushi restaurant. Thomas payed for us all !!! (y) 🙂

Today we leave for the 70.000 Tons of Metal Cruise !





10 År utan alkohol !

I samma stund som jag tog första steget ut från Capio Maria, Stockholm den 2:a Februari 2011 så föll den slutgiltiga poletten ner……. Det var inte en tanke, utan mer som någon slags uppenbarelse som bara ”slog till” och plötsligt så visste jag: ”Det är slut nu” – ”Jag kommer aldrig mer att dricka alkohol

Då har det gått 1 år till och jag är ”uppe på nio”…. Och står där, fortfarande stadigt ! Så har det varit sen den 2:a februari 2011. Och Nej – Jag är inte ”duktig” eller ”stark”. Jag skryter inte heller om det ! – Det var ett BESLUT jag tog, och jag är tacksam

9 Years of sobriety !

One more year has passed …. And I´m still here – sober ! This has been the case since February 2nd, 2011. But No – I’m not ” that fantastic” or ”strong”. I’m not boasting about it either! – It was a DECISION I made, and I am grateful that I finally got the insight

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

8 År som ”Spik-Nykter” ! Hur blev det efteråt ?

8 År ! Tiden går fort ! Och den går ännu fortare när man trivs och har kul, säger man. Och jag har det faktiskt kul och trivsamt – även om livet förstås går lite ”upp-å-ner” ibland, eller ganska ofta. Men så är det att vara människa och leva i verkligheten. Inget konstigt med det.
