....So, taking into account that I am feeling somewhat un-original right now, I shall start this thread with a description, stolen from Wikipedia.

"Therion is a Swedish symphonic metal band. Its name originates from Greek, where therion means simply beast; the name refers to the beast of the Christian Book of Revelation, however the band's name itself originates from the Celtic Frost album To Mega Therion. Therion was founded by Christofer Johnsson in 1987. Beginning as a death metal band, they later turned to combining orchestral elements with their metal music employing heavy use of choirs and classical musicians.

Therion's music takes its themes from different mythologies and is based on concepts ranging from occultism, magic and ancient traditions and writings. The majority of their lyrics are written by Thomas Karlsson, head and founder of the magical order Dragon Rouge of which Johnsson is a member. The band has seen many changes in line-up and style throughout its history"

This band to me, are absolutley sublime. The elements they combine are not only multifarious, but beautiful in the way they are placed and presented. Lemuria / Sirius B was an instant classic for me, so much more so than the bands previous endevours.

What do you all think of this terrific ensemble?

We are looking for a "live-Nalle".

As you may know, Nalle decided to withdraw from doing overseas and longer tours last year. Which means Therion will be having a live bassists, as we are keen on keeping Nalle remaining the band as a studio musician.
We had a perfect guy for this engaged last year, but recently it turned out he won't be able make it after all, so we have now started to look around for someone else. There are a lot of great bass players around, but we need someone who can sing as well, as Nalle did a valuable contribution with his voice that we got pleasantly used to.

Normally we only recruit people quietly via recommendation, but in this case we thought we'd widen our search base and will be open for auditions also from unknown people.
So if you are interested in an audition, please read the criteria in below carefully:
