BURNING POINT Hard At Work On New Album

Finnish metallers BURNING POINT have entered the studio to record their as-yet-untitled fifth CD, tentatively due later in the year. The group says, "All in all, 21 songs [are being laid down during the sessions]. All the drums are recorded as well as 80% of the final rhythm guitars, and although there's nothing else there yet, the songs sound AWESOME! It's going to be very hard to decide which songs we put on the album but our plan is to choose, somewhere along the line, 10-12 best from the best."

BURNING POINT filmed its performance at last year's Jalometalli metal music festival — which was held August 14-15, 2009 at Club Teatria in Oulu, Finland — for a forthcoming DVD.

BURNING POINT is featured on "ReUnation - A Tribute To Running Wild", the tribute to German metal legends RUNNING WILD which contains cover versions of songs exclusively from the albums "The Rivalry" (1998), "Victory" (2000), "The Brotherhood" (2002) and "Rogues En Vogue" (2005).

BURNING POINT's fourth album, "Empyre", was released in February 2009 via Metal Heaven. The artwork for the CD was handled by Felipe Machado Franco who had previously worked with such artists as ICED EARTH, AXEL RUDI PELL and BLAZE BAYLEY.
