Christofer Johnsson (born August 10, 1972 in Upplands Väsby, a suburb of Stockholm) is a Swedish musician. He is a founding member and the guitar player for Therion and used to be in Carbonized, Liers in Wait, Messiah and Demonoid. He is a member of the magical order Dragon Rouge and founder of the defunct Dark Age Music label. He started to play the bass at the age of 15 and changed to guitar a year later. Therion in one form or another (known earlier as Blitzkrieg, Megatherion and other names) is the main band that has occupied him ever since he started playing, but he also made 3 albums with a weird psycho-metal band called Carbonized as well as some vocal performances in bands, such as the Swiss band Messiah and the Swedish band Liers In Wait. He has no formal music education and has never taken any kind of music lessions. On March 21, 2006, he announced he will no longer sing for Therion, though he will continue playing guitar for the group
