AVIAN, the melodic metal band featuring singer Lance King (BALANCE OF POWER, PYRAMAZE) and guitarist Yan Leviathan, has set "Ashes and Madness" as the title of its new CD, tentatively due in early 2008.Commented Yan: "I have three songs I have to get done by Monday so that when Bill Hudson [CELLADOR] arrives to do his solos, he won’t be doing them to only a click track. "The songs are coming together very nicely, we are setting down a very solid foundation which I feel will make 'Ashes and Madness' a great CD. Lance will begin vocals next week and we hope to have everything mixed and ready to go by mid-December. According to the group, "Mattias Norén [EPICA, EVERGREY, INTO ETERNITY] has once again handled all of the art duties and he has done a killer job constructing a visually stunning 16-page booklet." Yan Leviathan assembled AVIAN after being inspired by GAMMA RAY's performance at the ProgPower USA III festival. Lance King is a well-respected and seasoned vocalist who has received critical acclaim and the support of legions of fans from his work in such bands as BALANCE OF POWER, GEMINI and PYRAMAZE. AVIAN's debut album, "From the Depths of Time", was released in 2005. For more information, visit www.avianband.com.
