Finnish metallers AMORAL have issued the following update:"We're hard at work on the material for the fourth album, with a few songs ready and a bunch more in the works. So far so good! The songs are coming to us pretty easily and we're very happy with them, hopefully you guys will be too. "As for the singer situation, we've received tons of applications from singers all over the world. We've listened to each and every one of you, and now have a couple of strong candidates. Hopefully we'll be able to make the important announcement in the near future. "Thanks for everyone who applied for the job, it was nice to see so many interested in joining this band!" Vocalist Niko Kalliojärvi recently announced his departure from AMORAL in order to focus on other projects. He made his final appearance with the band at the Thrashia Läpi Yön festival at Tammela, Finland on August 23. AMORAL last year entered the album chart in Finland at position No. 5 with the band's latest effort, "Reptile Ride". An e-card for "Reptile Ride", featuring clips of all the songs on the CD, can be accessed at this location. "Reptile Ride" (view cover artwork by Aki Siltala at this location) was produced, recorded and mixed by Janne Saksa at Sound Supreme Studios in Hämeenlinna, Finland. Spikefarm Records in June 2007 released the Internet-only "Leave Your Dead Behind". The bonus track for this release was a cover of Swedish pop star PANDORA's song "The Naked Sun". AMORAL's back catalogue has also gone digital: "Wound Creations" (2004) and "Decrowning" (2005) were released to digital music distributors in May 2007. AMORAL's video for the song "Leave Your Dead Behind" can be viewed below.
