EDGUY frontman Tobias Sammet has set "The Scarecrow" as the title of the third installment of his AVANTASIA solo project. The album is being produced by Sascha Paeth, who also played the rhythm guitar on the CD. The drums were laid down by KISS/ALICE COOPER drummer Eric Singer and the bass is being handled by Tobias himself.
Commented Sammet: "I am right now in the studio doing some vocal sessions. In about two weeks I am going to fly to England to work with a friend of mine on some vocals.
"Fans and record companies who are interested always ask me for the names of my guest musicians. I want you all to know that I am blessed to work with the best musicians, but I don't believe in making names more important than the music itself. I am working with some childhood heroes of mine and most important, with great personalities, true friends, and the greatest musicians you can think of. More...

DESPISED ICON have posted the following update:
“After going though tons of audition videos, we’d like to introduce our new guitarist; from Boston, Massachusetts, Mr. Al Glassman (Goratory, ex-Burn In Silence). Al learned and played the songs perfectly but most of all, he’s an awesome dude and we’re glad to have him as a guitarist and as a friend. He joined us on our latest Canadian tour and proved to us and to the rest of the crowd that he’s the perfect guy for the band. Thumbs up!
We just got home from our Canadian tour. Almost every single show was sold out! We hadn’t toured home in while and we’d like to thank everyone that showed up for making this a memorable experience. Our plane for Europe leaves tomorrow! This will be our first time touring overseas and we can’t wait to see what it’s like. We hope to see you there.”

Baltimore’s APHELION have posted three new tracks over at their official MySpace page for your listening pleasure. The band is also planning a tour for June with THE TASTE OF SILVER, you can check here for the tentative routing.
Finland's SOULRELIC have issued the following update:
"As some of you might have wondered the lack of information considering the band known as Soulrelic, aka Kurakello (inside joke, don't ask) here's some: Currently the status of this band is unsigned and unexisting, as we see no continuum for Soulrelic as a demo band. Some of us will continue making music with different instances, but at the moment there's no light at the end of the tunnel for this band. No dramatics we're involved in this separation, and we'll remain as very close friends with each other. But never say never. There is still a slight chance that someday we'll write new material, but if it ever happens, it won't happen in the near future. So long, and thanks for all the fish."
