Italian metallers Stormlord have issued the following update about parting ways with their guitarist and working on a new album:

"Hi guys, it’s been a long since the last update, isn’t it? That why we felt the will to bring some fresh news to all the legions of the Storm out there. First of all, we want you to know that we parted ways with our mate Pierangelo Giglioni (rhythm guitars) and we wish him the best luck for the future. The replacement was found in Andrea Angelini, an old friend of Stormlord: we know him since a long time, we like his bands (Stick It Out and Withate) and we already had a sort of collaboration back in 2002, on Francesco (Bucci – bass) and David (Folchitto – drums) side-project, Outbreak. Andrea has been on stage with us for more that a year now, he is highly motivated and ready to measure his talent with some new Stormlord music.

"Talking about that, after almost two years of touring promotion for 'Mare Nostrum,' we’re about to stop the live activity for a while. The response to our 2008’s album has been outstanding and we had the chance to perform a lot of concerts in Europe and even in ..Africa... Now it’s time for us to work harder on the new songs, that’s why we’re gonna play four last shows before to dig ourselves in the rehearsal room in order to complete the songwriting for our fifth album. The stuff we already have sounds damn’ good: innovative yet loyal to the epic Mediterranean style of 'Mare Nostrum.' We hope to enter the recording studio between the end of this year and the beginning of 2011. So, don’t miss the chance to see the last Stormlord shows for a while, it’ll be our pleasure to storm the stages in your neighbourhood!"

Stormlord also has the following upcoming tour dates:

3/25 2010 7th mediterrannen guitar festival TN - Tunis
4/30 2010 Jack Hole ITA - Vicenza, Vicenza
