Alternative/Experimental/Rap Metal band Candiria have announced plans to put out a record consisting of rare tracks and "b-side" material. Details have yet to be finalized, but the group has issued the following:
"We have decided to put out a rare tracks/B sides record. Older, odder material that never made it to any of the records for one reason or another, OR, stuff that was never actually intended to go on any of the records but was written by a Candirian. So that is next on the agenda... after that a remix compilation."
The following message has been posted by Christofer Johnsson on the official Therion website:
"Due to line-up problems Sirenia are forced to pull out and won't be able to fulfill their commitments. As we're on tour and time is short, we won't replace them. Therion will be playing 2,5 hours with a break in between and there will be a considerably improved stage scenery so there is no real need for a mid act in order to have a full evening going. On top on this there will be special guests and special performances (more info to come on that further on)."
The Vision Bleak will open with a 30 minute set, followed by an 2 1/2 hours set by Therion including one pause of 20 minutes to set change Therions production.

The following message was posted on Týr's official website:
"Týr will go into Jacob Hansens Studio in December to record their fourth full-length album, due to be released by Napalm Records in April or May 2008.
Týr's preceeding two albums, "Ragnarok" and "Eric The Red", have been recorded at Jacob Hansens Studio. It is situated in Ribe on the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. Ribe is one of the oldes known large and organized viking settlements in Scandinavia, so it's only very fitting that Týr record their albums there.
The co-operation between Týr and Jacob Hansen have been most appreciated by all parts involved so the decision for Týr to continue recording at Jacob Hansens Studio was not a hard one."
