Snowy Shaw of symphonic metal act Therion has posted a new video update online titled "The Blog Of Heavy Metal: Part 1 - 25th anniversary of Therion." Check out the clip below. Therion also commented last week on a canceled El Salvador show:

"The concert in El Salvador was cancelled by the local promoter because of so severe technical problems that a concert could not be performed. There were also a very serious security issue that delayed everything very badly. While it is always very sad to have a show cancelled, we agreed with the promotors decision, there was no other way. So we agreed on making a statement for the local media, where we of course expressed our desire to come back and do the show at some future date.

"It was suggested that we should return shortly after Mexico, but that was not possible as we already had tickets booked home and had other obligations booked (for example orchestral recordings for the new album). It would not be possible to play any concerts at all until after the summer.

"However, to fly in the band from all over the world to do just one concert is a very expensive project. So we have serious doubts that it will happen. Especially as the local promoter still owe our Latin American booking agent money. So we are at the moment very pessimistic about the possibilities of coming back anytime soon and we would advice any fan with a ticket to the cancelled show to claim back the money and not wait for a replacement show. We would love to come back and give our fans the show that they were looking for, but due to the mentioned reasons we don't see it happening in the near future. We are of course sorry for this mess, but it's beyond our control and out of our responsibilities."
