RAM-ZET's Miriam Renvag (also known as SfinX) will make a guest appearance on "Abyss Masterpiece", the fourth album from Portuguese dark/goth metallers HEAVENWOOD, tentatively due in early 2011 via an as-yet-undetermined record label. SfinX will appear on a track titled "Leonor".

Commented HEAVENWOOD: "We felt SfinX's vocals on 'Leonor' as if she was just side by side composing this melodramatic vocal lines for this song with us. She did a really fantastic work… A piece from her heart and soul is absolutely hand-delivered to you by SfinX enigmatic and very emotional voice on 'Leonor'."

"Abyss Masterpiece" was recorded at Ultrasound Studios in Braga, Portugal during August and September 2010 under the guidance of Daniel Cardoso, Pedro Mendes and Ricardo Dias (HEAVENWOOD). Mixing and mastering will take in Germany with a soon-to-be-announced producer.

Commented HEAVENWOOD guitarist Ricardo Dias: "'Abyss Masterpiece' perfectly symbolizes all the feelings that flow on each one of the songs included in this album — an album that will be dark, deep, melancholic, and above all with a very intense sound on which each song have their own soul. We consider 'Abyss Masterpiece' another step forward in HEAVENWOOD's career."

* The Arcadia Order
* Fading Sun
* Sudden Scars
* Leonor
* Poem For Mathilde
* Her Lament
* September Blood
* Morning Glory
* Like Yesterday
* Burden
* Winter Slave
