Gee, that was fast! I wonder what the fuck happened here. All I know is, yesterday, Snowy Shaw’s telling Blabbermouth he’s in Dimmu and how he’s super psyched. Today, Blabbermouth get word that he’s quit symphonic black metal act Dimmu Borgir to return to progressive Swedish metallers Therion.
Dude, I want a big bag of whatever it is this guy is mainlining. Therion issued the following statement to Blabbermouth: “We are very happy to announce that Snowy has rejoined Therion. We welcomed him back with open arms, and we will now be making a mix between the new show we had planned, and the last one which involved Snowy. We think the merger between the two concepts will be incredible, and we look forward to taking the band’s live performance to the next level.”
Wait — that’s it? Nothing from Snowy regarding why he’s such a flip-flopper? What the hell happened? Last time I checked, tons more people were interested in Dimmu over Therion, so I wonder what the hell this is all about. Believe it or not, Snowy even wrote material for the next Therion disc, Sitra Ahra, which drops this fall.
Snowy — it is time to fucking come clean. Why the crazy back-and-forth moves? I hope you are working on that statement you’ll give to Blabbermouth tomorrow, to keep your name in the metal press.
