Stratovarius have just released "Under Flaming Skies," another track from their forthcoming new album, Elysium. Produced by guitarist Matias Kupiainen, Elysium, will be hitting stores on January 18th via Armoury Records. The cover art for the record was created by Gyula Havancsák who has also worked with the likes of Annihilator and Destruction, so it's very metallic.
"Under Flaming Skies" finds the Finnish metal masters firing on all cylinders with a particularly impassioned performance from vocalist Timo Kotipelto, who wrote the track along with Kupiainen. You can check out the fiery, blazing new track here!
Also, in other Stratovarius news, in November of 2010, the band announced that doctors had found a cancer in drummer Jörg Michael's thyroid. After a successful surgery and some post-op treatment, Michael released a statement in late December letting his fans know that his health is rapidly improving. The drummer stated, "The surgery was done about six weeks ago and the first therapy is done as well. All looks good so far and as Jens (Johansson, keyboards) told me before: "Do not worry Jörg, nothing survives in your body after all what you did to it!" ARTISTdirect.om is happy to hear that the drummer is recovering. What good news!
