Hey Markus, grat review. I wish I could go to any of the shows. :ninja:
I'm always on the wrong side of the Pond, or in the wrong time and place when it comes to tours and gigs. :bye:

Lemuria.

That's all I have to say.

Lemuria.

Oh, and Snowy! Snowy was superb, as always. Thomas was fantastic, too. I was in the front lines, so there wasn't much room for maneuvering and, as first rows go, the sound was less than perfect, but I could hear the vocals clearly most of the time. Wisdom and the Cage was great and Siren of the Woods was... well... Tear-jerking. Unfortunately, I at one point exploited the sudden stillness of my Therion-comrades and started writing a message to my better half. Next thing I know, Thomas is on the floor, dead by the hand of our beautiful (and busty) Lori and I have no idea when this happened. Et tu, Lori?

Managed to get my ticket signed by everyone with the exception of Thomas Karlsson and Mr. Therion Himself. They didn't come down :\

Right, so, where can I buy tickets for the next show in Zagreb?

Well, the concert was fantastic, even better than expected but due to some tehnical problems the show started a little bit late. Of course, it only made waiting worser, but it was worth it at the end. The whole performance was mind blowing. I'd like to see something like that again. What's somekind wrong is that I didn't like Thomas. There's something about his appearance that bothers me... and he doesn't look nice to me at all... but he did the job well, though I'd still prefer Mats.

At the end I menaged to get into the backstage to collect all the signatures (woho, my Theli booklet is signed by all, tonights, performers ^^), also had a nice little chat with Lori, Piotr and Johan and had a lot of fun. Also, I saw my math teacher somewhere in the front rows with his daughters, I think. That man is so cool.

Merchandise (shirts) sucked big time, but see for yourself.

Urbiha, eh? The redheaded one was a friend of his, also his ex-student, while the other one was a guy.
Dap. You know him?
I tought the readheaded was his daughter or something.
A "guy"? You?

When did Christofer come down? :\
As far as I know, he didn't. People told me that he spent some time with fans right after the concert but I haven't seen him.

EDIT: Oh, backstage. Lucky bastard :)
Thank you, thank you. ^^

Also, where did they hide the merchandise? Shitty or not.
The merchandise stall was in the concert hall, on the right of the exit/entrance.

Yup. He's a friend of mine. He was on the last Therion concert too.

Interesting times. Some people wanted to get their picture taken with Christofer, some with the professor. He was a hit, so we decided to do a tour.

Yeah... We heard comments like that. We lol'd :) She's a bit too old to be his daughter.

Guilty as charged. I know my sensual features arouse even males, so I don't hold it against you. It's my elfish nature, you see.

The merchandise stall was in the concert hall, on the right of the exit/entrance.
Gnjaaah. And I saw nothing.

As to the unfortunate delay... The show started late 'cause they decided to compile the kernel. Or install Vista on a Macintosh, we're not really sure which one. Either way, it was an epic fail until the Spanish Inquisition came.

Compare this with this.

True enough, we didn't expect them.

I was also thinking about taking a picture with him but was kinda embarrassed of doing so since he is my teacher.

Well, she certainly doesn't look like that. I'd give her about 18/20 years.
Of course, if we are talking about the same girl. She is the one that took the drumstick, right?

To be honest, I haven't seen anybody but the girl with Urbiha. But a friend of mine told me something about some guy who told him "If you don't let the stick you won't get anything either", or something like that.

Gnjaaah. And I saw nothing.
Don't be sorry. Theli tour shirts look like the CD cover, and are not especially glamorous. The only thing worth anything is the new Sirius B shirt (at least I think it is new). Well, there wasn't much to see as I was expecting to be.

There were two versions of that shirt. One was like yours but with tour dates written in the hieroglyphs on the back. The other had almost same picture- somehow modified (without that wall or whatever behind)- and with tour dates on the back, written in english.

If anybody cares this is the setlist for Vision Bleak.
The order of songs is probably incorrect but the titles aren't.

Amala & Kamala

He wouldn't mind. He's pretty trigger happy with anything remotely resembling a camera, so he'd be more than willing :)

Yup, that's the girl. Add 10 years to your second guess and you're there ;)

That was me. He asked the professor if he'd get an A if he gave her the stick, to which I replied: 'If you don't give her the stick, you won't get an A.'

In the end, he gave her the stick :D

Inspired by Chris' post on megatherion.com, I was hoping to see some Lemuria/Sirius B (T-)shirts. So that would've been nice :\

Still, I'm hoping I'll be able to buy some of that stuff from their site. I'd give my neighbor's right arm for a Lemuria shirt.

Haha, ok, good to know. I hope I'll see him there next time to take that picture.
Maybe we could take a photo with the whole band. ^^

Woooow, ok, I'd never guess that.  :blink:

In the end, he gave her the stick :D
Greedy bastard. I let the stick go when Urbiha suggested that we, boys, let the girl have it. Though I had no idea he knew her.  :lol:

Yeah, I was also hoping to see all "old designs from the Lemuria/Sirius B era that they never ended up using using back then" but non of this happened. Still, I'm happy with my Theli shirt. ^^
