Finland's POISONBLACK (formerly SHADOWLANDS) — the new band featuring SENTENCED vocalist Ville Laihiala (on guitar) — have recruited an as-yet-undisclosed Canadian singer to replace departed CHARON frontman Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto."The new vocalist I've chosen is absolutely the right person to take our music to the next level and I will be announcing his name soon," Ville said in a recent online posting. "But do not expect to hear J.P. imitation 'cos that will not be the case. The new singer has a really talented, emotional and personal voice. "We will start the recordings of the next POISONBLACK album really soon. The single will be out before the summer... "We'll be back with a killer album...I promise!" POISONBLACK's debut CD, "Escapextacy", was released last February through Century Media Records.
