New Jersey power metallers ARCTICFLAME have posted the cover artwork for their upcoming CD at this location. According to a posting on the band's web site, "This painting, called 'Ambush at the Church of the ArcticFlame', was conceived by drummer Mike Paradine and commisioned to artist Juanjo Castellano of Spain."
ARCTICFLAME recently entered the studio to record the follow-up to its debut CD, "Primeval Aggressor" (Battle Cry Records). The sessions are being held at Dead City studios, helmed by Mike Sabatini of ATTACKER (Sentinel Steel Records).
ARCTICFLAME recently announced the addition of guitarist Steve Demalion to the group's ranks. Steve previously played for the '80's rock band WARRIOR, touring with them for three years throughout Canada and the U.S. Having recently moving to New Jersey from Tacoma, Washington, he answered an Internet ad placed by ARCTICFLAME, who were seeking a replacement for departed guitarist Don Dioro.
Commented drummer Mike Paradine: "Steve brings some great metal guitar work plus a high energetic stage prescence that was missing from that side of the stage. And for some reason he reminds me of Gary Moore!"
ARCTICFLAME plans on presenting the new lineup publicly in mid-April with a local show before their appearance at the fifth SwordBrothers festival in May.
