SHADOW CUT, the Helsinki, Finland-based black/death metal band featuring drummer Repe F.W. Misanthrope (IMPALED NAZARENE) and bassist Mitja Harvilahti (MOONSORROW), have cancelled their studio recording session originally scheduled for March. "The reason is mainly their lack of time for practising and getting things ready in time," reads a press release from the group's record label, Firebox Records. "Also the band has thrown away half of the songs that were supposed to be on the second album as they weren't strong enough. The band wants to make sure that the second album will be better than the debut, so they will take all the time they need..."
SHADOW CUT released their debut album, "Pictures of Death", earlier in the year via Firebox. The CD was produced by Henri Sorvali (a.k.a. Trollhorn, FINNTROLL).

Finnish "epic heathen metallers" Moonsorrow have entered Tico Tico studio in Kemi, Finland to begin recording their new album, "Raah Raah Blääh", for an early 2005 release through the Spinefarm Records imprint Spikefarm. "This album is going to be a bit different release, as we thought not repeating ourselves musically and lyrically," stated guitarist/vocalist Henri Sorvali. "So, no more overlenghty boring songs and epic shit, but some seriously pure aggression, hate and even some politics. (!!!!) Some of you might think it´s not acceptable for taking a step forward (backward?) but might I remind you that it is us who decide the direction of the band, not you."
