In other news, IN BATTLE have issued the following statement regarding their current label situation:

"We have been told that Cold Records is no longer under Metal Blade's wings. We would thank Michael and Andreas for a great job and a lot of good support. It was a great time to be on Metal Blade team. The next IN BATTLE album, we have been told that we are going to work with Regain Records, and I think it will suit us perfect!

"Next IN BATTLE album will be a lot of variation and heavy parts but still brutal and fast as ever before. IN BATTLE will work exclusive with Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, ex-MORBID ANGEL) on the upcoming album. We will try even to record everything in Mana recording studio [Erik's studio in Florida]. Only the cash will tell if it's possible or not."

As previously reported, IN BATTLE have set "Terrorkings" as the tentative title of their next album. A late 2005 release is expected.
