Canadian heavy metal trio Cauldron recently entered the studio to begin recording the band's third full-length album.
The follow-up to 2010's "Burning Fortune" is being recorded in Parkdale, Toronto, where the band is once again working with producer Jameson Elliott. The as-yet untitled new album is due to be released later this year on Earache Records.
Cauldron singer and bassist Jason Decay comments:
"We recently entered the studio to record our new album. Pretty much the same set up as last time with Jameson Elliott producing with us and recording close to home in Parkdale (Toronto) like we did on Burning Fortune. Chris (Rites) has been nailing the drums and I really think this is the best we've ever sounded in the studio so far. We feel very strongly about the new stuff and can't wait for people to hear it."

Canadian heavy metal trio Cauldron is currently on tour in Europe, and has issued an update to fans from the road. The band is headlining the three-week long "Burning Europe" tour in support of the latest album, "Burning Fortune." Supporting Cauldron are fellow Canadian metallers Striker.
Cauldron guitarist Ian Chains updates from the road:
"The Burning Europe tour so far has been an endless supply of self-cleaning rotating toilets, fizzy water, public hostels with old men walking around in yellowed underwear, giant hot dogs with miniature buns, dirt cheap Czech beer, 1 Euro skin rags, Jason washing his hair with his deodorant, and feeling like you can scrape a bucket of Crisco off your face.
"The shows have been great so far, the crowds have been savage, and we're having a non-stop pardy crammed in a van with our buds from Striker! We've been hanging out in Prague for the past couple days since we were lucky enough to blow our alternator on our day off. We've broken down before in worse places...! Looks like we'll get back to the Burning part of the tour in no time. We're looking forward to the rest of the tour cause you guys are wild man... WILD!!!" More...

We've been working on some new stuff for the set; stuff we never played before and some new material as well. Sorry to the fans in the UK, Sweden, and Greece who have been bugging us to come back, we tried to but it was beyond our control. Come party with us in a nearby country... It's sure to be a good time with us and Striker. And bug your local promoters for next time! I'm brewing up a nice hot one right now to drop on a ledge as soon as we arrive in Germany, beware!"

Canadian heavy metal outfit Cauldron has posted a new music video online for the song, "All Or Nothing." You can check it out below. The song comes from the band's latest studio album, "Burning Fortune."
Frontman Jason Decay comments: "The video is basically a concentrated day, or a final straw in the life of Cauldron. We based the concept around the lyrics of the song, which is a bit of an ongoing theme with Burning Fortune. We went for a bit of an edgy type of music video rather than the same old thing 'cause we figured we wouldn't get played on TV anyway.
"It was directed by Kevin MacAllister who normally does videos for Lush Cosmetics. We got hooked up through a friend who used to work there and just went for it. Ian's scene is actually shot at the Lush factory in Toronto..." More...

This issue of the fanzine will be a collectible Cauldron themed edition which will be dedicated to the band.
