PARAGON Begin Work On New Material, Land GAMMA RAY Tour

German melodic metallers PARAGON are writing songs for the follow-up to this year's critically-acclaimed Law Of The Blade CD for a tentative late 2003 release through Remedy Records/Zomba. According to bassist Jan Bünning, "we have about seven tiles in work already and one song, 'Eye of The Storm', is almost complete. We perhaps will record this song in advance and release it a special tour-only vinyl EP for the [band's upcoming European tour with] GAMMA RAY — but that's not [definite]."

In other news, PARAGON will shortly record a cover version of MANOWAR's "The Oath" for an upcoming MANOWAR tribute CD, due next year. The band have also been confirmed for next year's Headbangers Open Air Festival, which is scheduled to take place on July 11-12 in Germany.

PARAGON will support GAMMA RAY on the latter's The Skeletons In The Closet Tour 2002 at the following dates:

Oct. 24 - Hamburg, GER - Markthalle
Oct. 28 - München, GER - Backstage
Oct. 29 - Milano, ITA - Alcatraz
Oct. 31 - Barcelona, SPA - Razzmatazz 1
Nov. 02 - Strasbourg, FRA - La Laiterie
Nov. 03 - Elysee, FRA @ Montmatre
Nov. 04 - Bochum, GER - Zeche
