Toronto, Ontario's Cauldron have released a post-tour statement following thier recent outing in Europe with Suicidal Angels, Steelwing and Enforcer. The band announces details regarding thier upcoming studio album, tentatively titled "Burning Fortune."
"So its been a couple weeks now since we returned from Europe and I figure its time for an update on what’s been going on since our last blog dropped off the face of the internet. I’ve added a summary of the last 3 weeks of the Euro tour to the “CHAINED TO THE STEEL ENFORCED SUICIDAL WINGS” tour blog.
We’ve been busy tweaking the new songs for the next album since we got back. We just did a couple new demos for BREAKING IN and RAPID CITY and also laid down some solos over the weekend for ALL OR NOTHING and FROZEN IN FIRE. BURNING FORTUNE is the working title for the record so far and we have about 10 songs demoed now. Some of the other new tunes are TEARS HAVE COME, THE SERPENT SORCERESS and I CONFESS. We’re looking to record hopefully in September and have this out early next year.
We have a few gigs this summer to keep us busy… this Saturday in Ottawa with Flying Fortress at Mavericks. This one should be quite interesting as it will be our first as a four-piece. No, we haven’t got a new member, but I cut a few of my fingers open pretty badly on some broken glass over the weekend and just had them stitched up. I’m not able to hold a pick right now, so rather than cancel the show I’ve asked my old friend Brandon Wars to fill in on bass for the show. Should be fun, I’ve never really done the “lead singer” thing before and I haven’t played with Brandon in over 4 years, so I’m kinda looking forward to this."

View the cover art for "DIAMONDS" at this location.
ENFORCER singer OLOF WIKSTRAND comments, "Diamonds in some way refers to that we're seeing things in a little bigger perspective, or at least we think we do, haha. To me the word sounds majestic in some strange way, and that's what I like about it too."
"It was a bit dared, but also very natural for us to put ourselves on the cover. That was actually the first thing we agreed on concerning the artwork. The idea with us holding the diamond just came to us when we put one and two together." More...

Jason Decay, frontman of Canadian traditional metal band Cauldron, has been evicted from his apartment due to a dispute over Metallica's music. As Jason explained, his neighbor was playing Metallica's "S&M" at 2 a.m. He continues," When I had enough and went down to confront him about it with a copy of "Kill 'Em All" explaining that if he's got to crank Metallica at 2 a.m., they have more than that symphony shit." The neighbor was insulted and argued with Jason before slamming the door in his face. Jason retrieved a hockey stick from his apartment and "smash[ed]" the neighbor's door. The landlord gave Jason a notice of eviction.
Jason Decay had to reside in the band's rehearsal space for a short time before moving in with a friend. He enjoys living there because it has "...way cheaper rent."

Lane Soderberg of Noise Creep recently interviewed Jason Decay, frontman of Canadian traditional heavy metal band, Cauldron. In this interview, Jason goes on record about his hatred for nu-metal in its heyday and how the cyclical nature of musical trends directly influenced the rise of Cauldron.
"My backlash for that shit started when Korn started ruining the "Power 30" (Much Music's metal video show) back when I was 14," says Jason, "And it ended when I simply stopped caring about hating it anymore. I forget when that was. Like anything, it comes and goes and it will be back again someday to ruin something else, just like bands like us are currently ruining it (for nu-metal)."
