Therion mainman Christofer Johnsson has announced the addition of vocalist Linnéa Vikström - the hot blond daughter of vocalist Thomas Vikström. She'll be replacing tour vocalist Katarina Lilja, who left the band back in March in order "to sit at home with the boyfriend and just have a regular job."
Johnsson wrote the following: "We are hereby proud to announce the person who will be filling the infernal shoes of Kat (the Evil One) for the upcoming Therion tour activities. It will be no less than Linnéa Vikström, the daughter of Thomas. She sang on Sitra Ahra and enchanted many listeners with her charming and diverse presence. From being the cute little spawn of Thomas, she has now been growing to a woman and she is ready to help us carry the flag of Therion around the world.
