Swedish progressive/experimental metallers THERION have completed work on their new album, “Sitra Ahra”. The CD was mixed at the legendary Polar Studios in Stockholm by Lennart Östlund (LED ZEPPELIN, ABBA), who commented, “What you have made here is truly unique.” 13 songs were recorded for the CD, although it is presently unclear if all of the tracks will end up on the final record.
“Sitra Ahra” will be mastered in New York tomorrow for a late 2010 release.
THERION mainman Christofer Johnsson previously stated about the upcoming CD, “Expect something spectacular, even by THERION’s standards!”
Christofer Johnsson announced in May 2009 that vocalist Thomas Vikström (ex-CANDLEMASS) had become a permanent member of THERION.
THERION’s new rhythm section is comprised of Johan Koleberg (ANIMAL, ZAN CLAN, LION’S SHARE) on drums and Nalle “Grizzly” Påhlsson (TREAT, ZAN CLAN, VINDICTIV) on bass guitar.
THERION’s latest CD/DVD, “The Miskolc Experience”, was released in June via Nuclear Blast Records.
