Kiuas - New Line-Up Announced

Guitarist Mikko Salovaara of Finnish power metal band Kiuas has issued the following update on the recent line-up changes:

"As our loyal followers (that's you!) are well aware, vocalist Ilja Jalkanen left the band to pursue other interests. However, it is not only Ilja who has been pondering the balance between Kiuas and other areas in their lives. Markku Näreneva (drums) duties as a parent and medical doctor have grown to the point where it is impossible for him to continue giving his total dedication to the band. Atte Tanskanen has found his passion with flying and after graduating from the Finnish Aviation Academy he has spent most of his time in the mile high club (and steering the aircraft as well every now and then).

Kiuas - Singer Leaves Band

Taken from the official Kiuas website:

Hello folks! We have some startling news: our lead singer Ilja Jalkanen has decided to leave the band after some serious thinking. The reasons for this are purely musical and the chemistry within the band has always been great. In Ilja's own words: "My heart is not in heavy metal anymore, and a great band like Kiuas deserves a singer completely dedicated to the music."

However, as all the fans know, although Ilja has been the voice of Kiuas for many years, his contribution to the songwriting has been very minimal and thus his departure won't affect the bands musical direction or diminish the power of the music in the future in any way. The fact is that Kiuas will be able to continue it's musical journey with passion only without Ilja - this is the only way to go.

Kiuas - To Enter Studio Next Month

Finnish Power metallers Kiuas have issued the following update:

"So, it's been a while since we've informed you of our comings and goings on, and there have been some questions and speculations as to what Kiuas is up to, or are we up to anything...

Well, fear not my comrades! To make a long story short: We'll be entering the studio no later than in the end of November, and start recording our fourth full-length studio album. There are about 10 new masterpieces almost completely written, which we are polishing and finetuning as I write these words. The album is set to be released in March 2010 in Finland, other areas TBA. Naturally this is and has been the reason for not doing gigs for a while, since the writing, arranging and practing of the songs demands our full focus. After the release, we will start touring, the dates will be announced once confirmed (but hold your horses until next year, kids!).
