Frontiers Records & WHITESNAKE Join Forces


NAPOLI, ITALY (February 19, 2010) - Frontiers Records is very proud to announce the signing of legendary rock band WHITESNAKE.

David Coverdale and band are gearing up for their latest endeavour. WHITESNAKE has already started composing new material that promises to deliver one of the finest chapters in WHITESNAKE'S career. “We are off to a very good start, with the new songs taking positive shape. It feels good, fresh & exciting,” explains Coverdale.

The next release already feels like a solid, natural progression to their last opus, the successful, critically acclaimed ‘Good To Be Bad’ album, awarded by the influential Classic Rock magazine as “Best Album of the Year” in 2008. “As always, we want to take it to the next level,” states’ Coverdale. “I feel that with the last album we achieved a strong WHITESNAKE ‘cocktail’ that comfortably embraced & mixed all the previous musical aspects & styles of the band’s history, while taking our identity a little further... all on one album..."

Born in 1977, WHITESNAKE have been among the most influential representatives of the their genre, having produced numerous rock music classics such as ‘Here I Go Again’, ‘Is This Love’, ‘Still Of The Night’, ‘Fool For Your Loving’, ‘Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City’ or ‘Walking In The Shadows Of The Blues’.

Coverdale said the production team for the new album will most likely be the infamous Brutal Brothers, or Los Bros Brutalos, who handled the recording of "Good To Be Bad”. “The new songs are in the very familiar and recognizable WHITESNAKE territory of soulful, bluesy, melodic power rock, with a couple of ballads thrown in for good measure... It can’t be a WHITESNAKE album without ballads, mate!”

WHITESNAKE have conquered the love and respect of the audiences all over the world with their driving shows and music. The new album promises to follow in the steps of a great heritage of solid and timeless songs.

IN FLAMES - Part Ways With Guitarist

The following update has appeared on In Flames's official website:

"Jesper Strömblad, guitarist in In Flames has decided to leave the band permanently.

He had this to say - 'I have decided it is best for me to leave In Flames and to quit the band permanently. The last 17 years have been a blast, and I am proud to have been part of this great journey, with the most talented and amazing people anyone can wish to have the privilege to work with. I'm also the luckiest guy in the world, to have the BEST fans in the world, who have been supporting me during my difficult times. It means the world to me, and I'm determined to fight and defeat my demons once and for all.... and by the help from you guys, I'm on my way. I'm far from done with music, metal, or whatever my direction is taking me, so be sure to hear from me in the future.

...May the Force be with you!'

Anders, Peter, Daniel & Björn commented 'We are losing a great guitar player and musician, but in order to keep a very dear friend this is probably for the best.

If this feels right for Jesper we are behind him 100% on his decision.

It is way too early to speculate about the future and possible replacements and things like that. However, we can assure you that In Flames will continue as a band, release albums and tour the world.

The door to In Flames is always open to Jesper. We are, and will always be behind Jesper 100% on his way to recovery.'"

The album will be done at Sound Vision Studios of Las Vegas, NV, and will see producer/engineer, Lance Swain(Sound Vision Studios and metal band Lida Dyer) working with the band on co-production.

"We are very excited to begin recording at this time," commented the group's lead vocalist, Steve Handel. "The new material is more aggressive than past efforts, and all of us involved, feel that this music is much more matured. And to be working with Lance Swain again on this project will be great!"

This will be the second time that the group has done work with Lance, who also did work with the band on their video 'Blood of the Divine' taken from the band's EP release 'Prelude to Madness' which was recently released on the Heaven and Hell label on Oct. 29th.

the billing of MFF XIII on 27. November 2010 is finally complete! We finally have chosen DIAMOND HEAD (UK) as the headliner of this year´s festival. We are very happy about this decision as DIAMOND HEAD have been our favourite though we really considered some other great bands at the beginning as well. We think with this choice we have really set up a diverse line up and hope you like it all as well.

You can say that with this line up a very strong solide taditional and unique NWOBHM sound meets fresh new "speedy", "thrashy", "doomy" Heavy-Metal at its best.

So - let´s look at the MFF XIII line up on 27. November 2010:


and let´s have a look at the MFF warm up show on Friday, 26. November 2010 which is quite classical (EPIC) DOOM HEAVY METAL line up and perfect for warming up for the final show on Saturday:


We are now updating our website: www.metalforcesfestival.de for all relevant information about the warm-up show and MFF XIII. There you can soon see where to buy the tickets, how much there are going to be, how to get to Lörrach and much more details of all.

Also we are currently designing the FINAL poster / flyer which will also be ready for download.
