SLAVIOR/ex-FATES WARNING drummer Mark Zonder has issued the following update:"SLAVIOR will be playing this year at the NAMM Show in Anaheim [California]. We will be playing some acoustic songs on Friday and Saturday, January 18-19, 2008 at 2PM in the Steinberg Technology booth. We did a similar show in Japan back in August. SLAVIOR is also finishing up the second album and will be doing some recording during this same period while Gregg [Analla; SLAVIOR/TRIBE OF GYPSIES vocalist] is here from New Mexico. Hope to see everyone at the Steinberg booth." SLAVIOR recently posted another video from its trip to Japan in August. Watch the "Swept Away" clip below. SLAVIOR's self-titled debut album was released on April 3 via Inside Out Music. 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. 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.
