LULLACRY Guitarist Keeping Things Heavy And Melodic

LULLACRY guitarist Sami Vauhkonen has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"Boys and girls! Now it's time get in some action! For me it's always been easier to write music when it's dark outside. Yeah, I know you're looking at the damn picture and mumbling that it's not soooo fuckin' dark! But hey, you get better pictures in the daytime.

"The end of the year has been VERY dark here in Finland, so it has given me much energy, strong and darkful, to start working with the next master/disasterpiece, whatever it will be called. Now it's too early to (not too early for a cocktail) say what kind of music my twisted bloody mind will bring ya, but as every time I do my best to keep it heavy and melodic. I have a couple of heavy rockin' tunes which can be described as OPETH playing the next PAUL STANLEY solo album, which includes the songs of AVRIL LAVIGNE, which are written by Dave Wyndorf of MONSTER MAGNET.

"This time we might hear more music from the whole lovely group. Tanja [Lainio, vocals], Sauli [Kivilahti, guitar], Heavy [bassist Jarkko Hiltunen] and well... Jukka [Outinen, drums] has also said he's been doing some shit lately. We'll see what's going on with the drummer."

As previously reported, LULLACRY and SILENTIUM have been added to the STREAM OF PASSION gig on January 19, 2007 at Nosturi in Helsinki.

LULLACRY's fourth studio album, "Vol. 4", was released in the U.S. in February via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded at Astia Studios with Anssi Kippo (CHILDREN OF BODOM, ENTWINE) and at Finnvox Studio with Mikko Karmila (NIGHTWISH, STRATOVARIUS).

LULLACRY's first single off the new album, "Stranger in You", entered the Finnish single chart at position No. 16 upon its release in July 2005. The title cut was backed by a cover of KISS' "I Stole Your Love".

LULLACRY issued a five-song EP, "Fire Within", in August 2004, featuring two new songs ("Fire Within" and "The #1 Rebel"), two remakes of classic LULLACRY tracks, as well as a cover version of W.A.S.P.'s "L.O.V.E. Machine".
