THERION - split ways with singer mats leven! - 2007-05-16

2007-05-16 - This is shocking news for all THERION fans - the masters of Opera Metal have recently announced a significant change in the band camp. From Wacken Open Air and onwards, Mats Levén will no longer be singing with the band!"It was a decision taken by the whole band in discussion with Mats. This change of line up is on friendly terms and the remaining shows before Wacken will be performed with the same energy and passion as if nothing had happened", the band promises. "There are no bad feelings. THERION will continue to develop even further into the direction we set on the last tour and Mats will focus on his new projects." Of course, mastermind Christofer Johnsson has already found a suitable replacement. "The new guy will be Thomas Vikström. He is probably most known in the metal world for singing on a CANDLEMASS album ('Chapter VI'). His great vocal abilities will for sure be more known at least among the THERION fans after the tour."
