BURNING POINT Seeking New Label Home

Finnish metallers BURNING POINT have parted ways with Metal Heaven, the label that released the band's most recent album, 2009's "Empyre". The group states, "Our plan is to record a six-track promotional CD and send it to the labels all over the world."

BURNING POINT's fourth album, "Empyre", came out in February 2009. The artwork for the CD was handled by Felipe Machado Franco who had previously worked with such artists as ICED EARTH, AXEL RUDI PELL and BLAZE BAYLEY.

BURNING POINT filmed its performance at last year's Jalometalli metal music festival — which was held August 14-15, 2009 at Club Teatria in Oulu, Finland — for a forthcoming DVD.

BURNING POINT is featured on "ReUnation - A Tribute To Running Wild", the tribute to German metal legends RUNNING WILD which contains cover versions of songs exclusively from the albums "The Rivalry" (1998), "Victory" (2000), "The Brotherhood" (2002) and "Rogues En Vogue" (2005).
