"Expect hard riffs combined with rich melodies and brilliant musicianship — the THUNDERSTONE trademarks!" reads a posting on the group's web site. "Also look forward to possible surprise guests and covers."THUNDERSTONE's sophomore album, "The Burning", entered the Finnish Album chart at position No. 17 upon its release in January. The follow-up to 2002's "Thunderstone" was recorded at Sonic Pump with producer/guitarist Nino Laurenne and was mixed at Finnvox studios with Mikko Karmila (NIGHTWISH, CHILDREN OF BODOM). Included on the CD is a guest appearance by SYMPHONY X guitarist Michael Romeo in the track "Drawn to the Flame".
