Epic Rock Radio is happy to announce the vocalist of the band Therion, Thomas Vikström!!!


Thomas will be here in our Shoutbox on Tuesday, February 08, 2011 at 1pm PST Shoutbox time.  (GMT-8)

We'll have an Admin to lead the interview to keep it going smoothly.  You can ask questions but please try to limit them to one per person if the Shoutbox is chaotic and please allow Thomas time to answer a question before asking the next one.

(A special thank you to Metalswede for bringing Thomas [who atteneded MS's wedding] to Epic Rock Radio!!!)

\m/ Fun! \m/

Theion & Thomas Vikstrom Facts:


Therion is a Swedish symphonic metal band founded by Christofer Johnsson in 1987.

Thomas is also a permanent vocalist for the symphonic metal band Therion.

Thomas is the son of opera singer Sven-Erik Vikström.

Inspired by his father, Vikström has played roles in theatre productions starting on stage at the Stockholm theater "Folkan" in 1990.

During 1991 he starred as the main-character in the opera "Hoffman" adventure" in Stockholm.

He also played the main part as "John" in the musical "Miss Saigon" from late 1997 to December 1998.

Greatest gig experience:  He sang together with Vinnie Vincent from Kiss.  Also performed in front of Bjorn and Benny from ABBA and warmed up for Alice Cooper on his Trash Tour.  Also did backing vocals together with Andy Scott from Sweet!

Thomas sang at Mr and Mrs MetalSwede's wedding.   Grin

Likes: Good food!!!! Not some five star restaurant!! I like food cooked for a man!! Of course my family, I also love to be alone sometimes and do exactly what I want!

Influential CD's: Kiss - "ALIVE", Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe - "Barcelona", ABBA - "The Album", Judas Priest - "Painkiller".

Thomas wanted to be a hockey pro but did not really have the skills, even though he was good. His father was an opera singer so it came very natural to start singing.

Thanks to everyone that showed up for the Thomas Vikstrom interview!  It was a lot of fun and a great success!

It was a bit crazy and exciting at first but eventually calmed down enough so that Thomas V could answer everyone's questions.

Great job!

Dude, I totally forgot about it.  I downloaded it and got it ready and didn't post it up!  Oops.  Thanks for reminding me.

I'll get it done when I'm home from work this evening.  :-)
