Christine Gyrsting Lorentzen (better known by her stage name/ nickname "Lore") is the current lead vocalist for Cryoshell. She has been singing and working with music in the greater part of her life.

Prior to Cryoshell, Lorentzen has recorded in Los Angeles, done model work and in 2006 starred in the Danish version of the TV show Star Search and later that year, she hosted the Danish version of the worldwide successful TV concept Strictly Come Dancing. Since then, Cryoshell has been Lore’s dedication, and with her powerful and intense voice, she draws people into the Cryoshell universe.

In late 2006, Lorentzen was offered the chance to sing vocals in a one-off recording project; the song Creeping In My Soul. She was joined by Kasper Søderlund on guitar and Søren Bendz on piano. The song was used as the soundtrack for the popular LEGO toy theme BIONICLE's 'Barraki' toyline. The song proved to be a hit, rapidly becoming as the most downloaded MP3 from the official LEGO website.

Over a year later, Lore, along with Søderlund and newcomer Mikkel Maltha, released a new song for BIONICLE to help promote their 'Mistika' toyline, Closer To The Truth, and at the same time, decided on a band name; Cryoshell. The trio later announced plans to release an album to be released in Fall 2008, but delays had caused the album release to be moved to a later date. In 2009, Cryoshell released a fifth and final song for BIONICLE as well as their first official single, Bye Bye Babylon.

In 2010, Lorentzen and her bandmates released their debut album in their home country of Denmark. They are currently working on a worldwide release.

Personal LifeEdit

Lorentzen lives in Copenhagen, located in the Hovedstaden region of Denmark. She worked and studied at Advance, a creative agency, for ten years and has been employed with nearly every job title available in the business. Lorentzen left the company in the Summer of 2010 a few weeks pregnant.

Due to the online popularity of the song, Søderlund and Mikkel Maltha (a close friend of Søderlund who has worked with him on numerous occasions) along with Danish vocalist Niels Brinck, recorded a new song for BIONICLE called Face Me in mid-2007. Søderlund again played the guitar for the song, with Brinck on vocals and Maltha as the director. Later in the same year, the trio recorded a third song for BIONICLE to help promote their 'Phantoka' toyline in early 2008 titled Gravity Hurts.

In the Summer of 2008, Søderlund and Maltha recorded a new song for BIONICLE, Closer To The Truth, with Creeping In My Soul' 'vocalist Christine Lorentzen, whist at the same time deciding on a band name; Cryoshell. The newly-formed Cryoshell later confirmed plans to release a debut album in the Fall of 2008, but delays had caused to the album's release to be moved to a later date. In 2009, Cryoshell released a fifth and final song for BIONICLE as well as their first single, Bye Bye Babylon.
