Finnish metallers Charon have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:
"New decade brings changes to Charon and now it's good time to update the situation. There have been rumours among Charon fans and followers about the future of the band. Playfully it could be said that Charon was not able to escape the cold grip of ongoing recession and had to go through re-organization and layoffs.
After taking some time out last summer we were not able to tune our engine to the needed pace for the studio sessions. We had written a bunch of new songs during the last couple of years but were not able to put them on record. After a long pondering and going through different alternatives, it was inevitable that we cannot output the next album in this mood of confusion. As a consequence guitarist Pasi Sipilä has left Charon.

Swedish metallers Pain have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:
"We've created a place for all Pain headz to meet up and discuss everything from Pain songs and shows to Peters beard and how much money Johan spends monthly on hygiene hair products. Hopefully we'll be able to answer some of your questions, ask you questions, and maybe we'll get to know each other a little bit better. You'll find it at this location.
Pain will only visit one summer festival 2010. But it will feel and sound like fifteen, he he. We will put all the energy, all the songs, all the headbanging, all the lights, all the power, all the volume, and all the booze we usually spend on a whole summer into one show. Which one it is will be official later this month (February)
We are very excited to bring you these news! We are almost done writing the songs for the new album, and we couldn't be happier! There is a general feeling that this is gonna be a really great album. Every time I listen to ourselves playing the songs, I can't help smiling. We are totally into every little detail and small part to make this one of the best Angra albums ever.
The rehearsals are taking place at Ricardo's country house, near São Paulo. We don't have TV or internet, and phone signal is very poor, so we can't help but concentrate fully on the composition process, and this is intentional. We have a whole new set of challenges in the new arragements, since every part of them is being taken to the next level, both technically and musically.
