Oulu, Finland-based power metal band ULTIMATIUM has issued the following update:

"ULTIMATIUM has decided to cancel their recording deal with Mastervox Records, affecting immediately. Because decision about recording and releasing of third album was not made in time by Mastervox Records, ULTIMATIUM sees that deal has been fulfilled and Mastervox Records does not wish to use their option for third album. In the end, musical differences and visions about third album between artist and label were just too apart. And to make things clear, we tried to avoid this until the inevitable end and we would have been pleased to record our new album for Mastervox Records, but it takes two for a dialog...

"We will continue working with third album and will start recording it on third quarter of 2010.

"ULTIMATIUM is now seeking for new partners to work with, mainly someone to release the album and handle marketing etc. So labels, managers, promoters, if you'd like to know more, contact [email protected]

"New promo pictures and samples/teasers of their 'controversial' pre-production demos have been added to their slightly updated web site Ultimatium.com, so enjoy.

"ULTIMATIUM also activates on matter of gigs and hopefully you'll be able to see us on stage next summer and second half of 2010."
