Snowy Shaw's revelation that he was quitting Therion last week has now been officially confirmed by the band and supplemented by rumours that he will be joining none other than Dimmu Borgir.
However, the Dimmu Borgir rumor is of course a rumor and not necessarily true in any way.
Therion's official statement reads thus:
Snowy Shaw has suddenly decided to not do any of the upcoming shows with Therion. This decision took us by surprise, because, up to now, we have had a great collaboration. The reason is simply that he has been working on an album with another big band (as a bass player – that came as a surprise too!), who have now offered him a deal he felt he could not refuse. We don’t think this is a good decision, but accept the situation and wish him good luck.
Snowy was forced to sit out of what would have been his last performance as Therion vocalist at RockHarz festival last weekend due to sickness. His vocals will be filled in by Thomas Vikström in future shows which will go ahead as planned.
An announcement detailing who Snowy will be strumming his bass for should be out any day now…
