Shadowblade to Mix New Album in Finland

Jasio, of Edmonton progressive metallers Shadowblade, has checked in with the following album update:

"Hey everyone,

"I've made some nice progress in the last few weeks solidifying the ETA for "Frozen Serenity". I'm happy to announce that we have chosen to take our record down to the "promise land of metal" (as named by an interesting documentary) of Helsinki, Finland to have the record mixed at Sonic Pump Studios by Nino Laurenne and a colleague of his.

"You can recognize Nino's work on albums put out by bands like Ensiferum, Children of Bodom, Elvenking, Sonata Arctica, Wintersun, Stratovarius, Finntroll, Kiuas, etc... (the list is as long as it is impressive). Without saying much I think it is obvious why Sonic Pump was the place we chose to go with :) Our studio time is booked in May, which after mastering and getting the records physically manufactured will push the release date probably around the July 1st area. I do not regret that repercussion in the slightest, as I am just excited to let this beast out of its cage:)

"Plans are in the air for some CD release gigs in Edmonton and elsewhere in Alberta/British Columbia through the summer. These will be dealt with after I ensure the date of the record being available.

"I've got some more cool news, but I am going to hold off until things are 100% :)"

Shadowblade Announces New Drummer

Jasio Kulakowski of Edmonton band Shadowblade has issued the following update:

"Hello, I am just posting this to announce that in order to take the time to try and properly heal an unfortunate back injury, and to further dedicate his efforts with our good friends in Striker, Magnus will no longer be drumming for Shadowblade. It was an absolute blast playing with him for the past 2 years, and I obviously wish him the best of luck with both the healing and the playing.

"In light of this I would like to announce that Anders Johansson of Edmonton's technical death metal gurus Skepsis will be joining me to record the drums on the upcoming full length, and for future live gigs as well. Anders is by far the most creative drummer I've ever had the pleasure of playing with, and I am very excited to hear him sculpt his sound into my writing.

"I know I keep saying this, but I'll give more info on the album at a later point in time. I still haven't decided on a name, and I am still looking for the right artist to bring my ideas to life for an album art. Apart from that I need to give Anders a little bit of time to work with the tracks, but I do want to start tracking as soon as possible! Once I have all my details figured out I will announce them."

Shadowblade Working on New Album

Jasio Kulakowski, of Edmonton's Shadowblade, has checked in with the following update:

"So if anyone's curious what's been going on musicwise with this band, the answer is I've just been taking my sweet time writing a new album this year. For now I've recorded a demo of one of my new songs for some personal reasons, but also to give the general public some heads up as to what I've been doing with my time!

"If time allows me I'll have a few more demos up within the next couple months, so visit back when you get the chance. For now 'Beijing Sunrise' is on our page to check out. There's some faster songs coming up, but this one was a little more personal to me and I wanted the music to reflect the tracks purpose as much as possible, this included its nice swaying tempo :) I still tried to keep it heavy somewhat ;)

"I've also enabled downloading of that (and all the others for that matter...) track, so if you can figure out how to do it with myspace than feel free to download the songs. If it doesnt work and you want an mp3 just shoot me a message here via myspace with an email."
