Therion - Looking For New Soprano


Taken from the band's official website:

"Therion had planned to use the same singers from the latest album also live, but unexpectedly, we are one soprano short. We're right now checking our contacts for a replacement, but thought we might surprise a bit and actually do like Nightwish did and let people we don't know also apply for the job.

So what's the deal?

If you get the job, you will be one out of 4 vocal soloists on stage and you will do all concerts on the upcoming Therion World Tour 2007.

Payment per show will be the same as a regular member of the band and you will travel, live and perform on the same terms as the rest of us.

If you're so damn good that we get stunned when we hear you, it doesn't matter where on the planet you live - we will fly you in for each tour and separate show. But of course it is a plus the closer you live to Stockholm.

Do you fit in with this?

You have a soprano range and sing classical style. It is a plus if you can read notes, but a very good ear for picking out tones is enough as we will present you recordings of everything that will be sung.

You are flexible and can also sing other types of voices than operatic.

You have an exceptionally good intunation and a varm vibrato.

You are able to be a part of a show with movements, we are not looking for a singer standing still, there will be quite some action on the stage this tour.

You are laughing fear in its face and it's a piece of cake for you to perform in front of thousands of people.

You are between 20 and 45 year old and have experience of singing live with a rock band before.

You speak english, are easy to get along with and are willing to dedicate the entire year 2007 for Therion activities when they occour even with short notice.

If "yes" to all of the above. then mail us as fast as possible some good quality mp3's of you singing, some photo of you and a brief text explaining who you are etc.

Mail your application to singer@therionstore.com

Please do NOT send anything else than applications for singing with the band to this address. If you want to contact the band, then do it over the Therion Society."

This might be a stupid question, but do they say if they want a male or female vocal?

Well honestly, Nightwish has not found a singer yet, so i am assuming this method does not really work!
