THERION – video contest, the return of Snowy Shaw + tour update - 2010-08-23

2010-08-23 - Swedish symphonic gothic legends THERION will release their new masterpiece „Sitra Ahra" on September 17th! Now we need you and your creative skills: mastermind and guitar wizard Christofer Johnsson wants to see your ideas!
Shoot the videoclip for the title track of „Sitra Ahra" and get some inspiration from the lyrics:

Sitra Ahra

Tree of disbelief
with broken harmony in the resin.
Taste the tempting fruit
and be an outcast from the paradise.

Pass the Sea of Darkness to another world.

Join me to the Other Side, (the) Nightside of the Paradise.
Sitra Ahra
Kiss the Queen of Qelipot, listen to the serpents voice:
Sitra Ahra
"Pass the gate across the line, take a step and enter Ayin".
Sitra Ahra

Pandemonium
a secret residence in the exile.
Build another house
God is left behind and now you see.

(An) Eden you are losing you will once regain.

Join me to the Other Side, (the) Nightside of the Paradise.
Sitra Ahra
Kiss the Queen of Qelipot, listen to the serpents voice:
Sitra Ahra
"Pass the gate across the line, take a step and enter Ayin".
Sitra Ahra

You will break the seventh seal
Sitra Ahra
(and) all the secrets are unveiled.
Sitra Ahra.

Walk across the mirror to another world.

Join me to the Other Side, (the) Nightside of the Paradise.
Sitra Ahra
Kiss the Queen of Qelipot, listen to the serpents voice:
Sitra Ahra
"Pass the gate across the line, take a step and enter Ayin".
Sitra Ahra

The lucky winner will be picked by Christofer Johnsson himself and will also get lots of cool prizes!

Also, after just having left THERION, singer and legend Snowy Shaw apparently missed Christofer Johnsson and co. faster than expected! "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 bands' live performance to the next level," says Christofer Johnsson.

In addition, THERION had to cancel shows in Mexico and Venezuela. Christofer explains: "We are very sad to announce that the shows in Chihuahua and Puebla in Mexico has been cancelled. The situation with the drug cartels are becoming worse and worse in the north and the local authorities strongly advice against playing concerts in Chihuahua (and of course Monterray which also has been rumoured we would be playing), so the national promoter in Mexico has decided to cancel Chihuahua as the safetly of the band, crew and fans can not be guaranteed at this point. The Puebla festival has also been cancelled due to some sort of drug cartel related civil unrest problems.

There seems to be no risk for the remaining shows in Mexico and the band hope that there will be other shows to replace the cancelled ones in other parts of the country.

Seems like the world is going crazy at the moment, as the Caracas show in Venezuela will be cancelled as well. Local promoter is having economic problems and didn't want to risk fucking everything up from what I've heard. So better to cancel and try to replace it with another show in some other country than to risk standing there with thousands of fans buying tickets and maybe making a long travel from another city just to end up with no show happening. We hope we will be able to do Venezuela some time in the future, we were really looking forward to playing there."
