Guitarist Jyri Vahvanen of the Finnish "fantasy metal" band BATTLELORE has posted the following message at the band's web site:
"Gigs in Lübeck (Germany) on Jan. 27, Osnabrück (Germany) on Jan. 28 and Arnhem (Holland) on Jan. 29 are CANCELLED. We were really anxious for those gigs and more than ready to visit Middle Europe again, but because of the problems of our booking agency/promoter, it is impossible for us to play there. We apologize those cancellations."
BATTLELORE are currently writing material for their fourth album, tentatively due before the end of the year. The group's third CD, "Third Age of the Sun", entered the Finnish album chart at position No. 38 back in August 2005. The follow-up to 2003's "Sword's Song" was recorded at SoundSuite Studio in Marseille, France with producer Terje Refsnes (TRISTANIA, MORGUL, TURISAS). Mastering duties were handled at Finnvox studios in Helsinki.
