www.paladinosclub.com SLAVIOR recently posted a new track, entitled "Red Road" on its MySpace page. The song comes off the group's upcoming self-titled debut album, due in April via Inside Out Music. A versatile, melodic hard rock/metal act, SLAVIOR's debut album features elements familiar to Zonder's progressive metal past, but also introduces a wide array influences including reggae, hip-hop, and modern rock. The band had originally inked a deal with Greece's Black Lotus Records, but financial turmoil eventually caused the label to fold, leaving SLAVIOR to re-evaluate matters and come to their initial choice of labels, Inside Out. As previously reported, Zonder will appear on the "Another State of Mind" radio show on 105.3 FM in San Diego on January 21 to promote SLAVIOR's upcoming CD.
