According to a posting on KORPIKLAANI's MySpace page, Finnish "fantasy metal" band BATTLELORE will no longer take part in KORPIKLAANI's December 2007 European tour. No reason was given for BATTLELORE pulling out of the trek.

As previously reported, BATTLELORE will play two shows with BAL-SAGOTH in Finland in January. The details are as follows:

Jan. 25 - Helsinki, Finland - Nosturi
Jan. 26 - Turku, Finland - Klubi

BATTLELORE is currently working on material for its fifth album, tentatively due next summer. "At the moment it seems that there will be bigger, more epic parts in the vein of 'Sword's Song' but also more harder, heavier parts in the vein of 'Evernight'," stated vocalist Tomi Mykkänen. "I'm quite sure that you fans won't be disappointed with this one."

BATTLELORE released its fourth album, "Evernight", in North America on March 13, 2007 via Napalm Records. The CD was issued in Europe in February.

The follow-up to 2005's "Third Age of the Sun", "Evernight" was recorded at MusicBros Studio and was produced by Miitri Aaltonen, who previously worked with the Finnish "fantasy metal" band on their first two CDs, "...Where The Shadows Lie" (2002) and "Sword's Song" (2003). The mastering duties were handled at Finnvox Studios.
