Thesyre has checked in with the following update about writing new material for an upcoming album:
"2010 will soon be over. It's been a quiet year for me and Thesyre. It's time for a short recap:
"We are still writing material for Thesyre's next album. We will record, produce and release it ourselves when we are ready. I am looking forward to some limited physical formats as well as sharing it for free online, as usual.
"Speaking of online material, I am glad to report we had an average of 6 people a day downloading from our archive in the last year. Those numbers are tiny, of course, when compared to bigger bands but I think it's good enough for a band like us with no promotion, no touring, no presence in the press in the last 18 months.

Vocalist Eric Syre of Thesyre has issued the following update about the band's activities:
"I experienced a major system crash with my computer and had to start anew recently. The holiday period also put a more or less unwanted break on our activities as a band. We should resume rehearsals soon and start recording and uploading new music to our free MP3 archive.
"I hope the few hundred people who already downloaded our music enjoyed it! There's no way we could have sold that many CDs in such a short time so I think our decision to go free online was a good one. Thanks to everyone! Knowing most people taking the time to download also probably had the right mind frame to appreciate us, your comments are welcomed! No seasons wishes or happy this/that...this stuff gets overrated!"
Vocalist Eric Syre of Canadian metallers Thesyre has issued the following statement about the upcoming movie based on the Lords of Chaos book:
"A few people contacted me recently, inquiring about my feelings on the forthcoming Lords Of Chaos movie.
"Being a long-time Burzum enthusiast, a supporter of Varg Vikernes, after being slightly involved in burzum.com and its following online community (filosofem), as well as appearing on the only 'official' tribute album I guess my two cents meant something to someone.
"Whatever, here's my take of the phenomenon:
"The book this movie is based on was, to begin with, a huge pile of crap. Most of its content is built around interviews excerpts, more than often put out of context and focusing mainly on shocking topics without giving it any additional background. More...
