Finlands Entwine have posted the following message:
"Hiili Hiilesmaa is taking charge producing Entwine's sixth, yet untitled studio album. The sessions will occur over two months period, and the album will be relased sometime after the summer. Info about the progress, release dates, and everything else related can be found here on the MySpace and on the official website at www.entwine.org.
BATTLELORE guitarist Jyri Vahvanen has posted the following studio update:
"The ‘last’ day in studio for me. Yesterday we finished Kaisa’s vocals and in the evening we listened the songs carefully if there would be any reason for changes, adds or additional arrangements. Jussi and I made a few last guitar lines today morning and then… that was it! The whole session went very fast and when the end came, I was a bit confused and so is the rest of the band. We recorded eleven songs, but we do not know if they all are going to end up on the album and it has been very difficult to make a clear vision about the whole package. We will get a rough mix on Friday and that is actually the first time when we can really hear all the songs together with all of the tracks balanced and shaped.
"Well, actually there’s a little more to do: a few more verses for Kaisa and at least one 'shouting' part for Tomi and after we have heard the rough mix, there might be more some small changes, but it would only take a day or a two and of course there is the mixing still left. Huh! My mind is empty, soul wretched, and body shivering, but one thing is for sure: it is going to be a helluva’ album!"
Diamond Head have posted the following message:
"Unfortunately, the show in Nuneaton (England) on Saturday, May 3rd has been cancelled.
"The promoter has cancelled this show after trying to renegotiate the terms intially agreed at such a late stage and this was totally unworkable for the band.
"We apologise to any fans in the area looking to attend for this inconvenience."
