BATTLELORE To Play Acoustic Show In Helsinki

Finnish fantasy metallers BATTLELORE will play an acoustic show at Nosturi downstairs in Helsinki, Finland on August 9. The band states, "In spite of this gig we are still on a break."

BATTLELORE announced last November that it was going on an indefinite hiatus after performing at the Metal Female Voices Fest IX on October 21, 2011. The group ssaid at the time, "This is not the end, however, just a time-out to focus on other aspects of life and build up more creative energy for the future. . . There's no drama behind the decision to go on break, just a need to take a step back and have a breather."

BATTLELORE's sixth full-length album, "Doombound", was released in January 2011 via Napalm Records. The band's first conceptual effort, features lyrics which "tell the story of J.R.R. Tolkien's tragic hero Túrin Turambar and his kin," according to a press release. "One of the songs is sung completely in Finnish in appreciation to BATTLELORE's beautiful home country Finland and Kalevala, the national Finnish epic. The songs themselves are more dynamic, atmospheric and epic than ever before."
