EXCALION To Enter Studio In May

Finnish symphonic power metallers EXCALION will enter Watercastle studios in May to record the follow-up to 2005's "Primal Exhale", due later in the year via Sound Riot Records. According to a press release, "The new songs are very more mature both musically and lyrically. The whole band has improved a lot, but the vocals of Jarmo Paakkonen got a notable evolution. The actual music is more melodic, hard and fully rich in the songwriting and playing, it isn't only prog or power metal in all. We could say the band found their 'own sound' now."

Described as a blend of NIGHTWISH and STRATOVARIUS, "Primal Exhale" was recorded and mixed at Watercastle studios and was mastered at The Digital Audio in U.K. (ROYAL HUNT, RING OF FIRE, LAST TRIBE). Cover artwork duties were handled by C.A. Interactive (MORIFADE, AXENSTAR, SUPREME MAJESTY).
