Christofer continued about the project: “The project was seen as too controversial for THERION’s record label, Nuclear Blast, by the final results, so I asked if it was possible to buy back the master tapes of the record and release it on my own label. And after some negotiations, my wish was granted. But THERION is of course is still signed to Nuclear Blast Records for future releases,” Christofer clarifies.

By having full control of the release now, Christofer has decided to do everything his own way, and starts by releasing the album to the loyal fans first that come to the concerts in Europe during THERION’s 25th Anniversary “Flowers of Evil” tour.

Christofer went on to explain: “This is the beginning of a new period that will last for a number of years, where the band will focus on doing certain projects performed by THERION rather than releasing regular albums. In the planning after the art project is a rock opera that is scheduled to take several years to complete.”

Now during THERION’s “Flowers of Evil Tour” and the band’s 25th anniversary the audience can expect a breathtaking performance which combines all the elements which have been the key to THERION’s success throughout the years.
