Finnish melodic metallers BURNING POINT have inked a deal with Scarlet Records. The band’s new album, “The Ignitor”, will be released later in the year. The CD was recorded at HelGate and Reindeer Horns Studios and mastered at Tico Tico Studios (SONATA ARCTICA, SENTENCED) by Ahti Kortelainen. The beautiful cover artwork was handled by Felipe Machado Franco (BLIND GUARDIAN, RHAPSODY OF FIRE, IRON SAVIOR).
According to a press release, “No other title could be more appropriate to describe an album that truly ignites all the elements that BURNING POINT are about. The band have come a long way round musically and you can really hear it in their music. ‘The Ignitor’ takes all the good things from its predecessors, throwing them into a whirlwind of heavy metal and from the eye of the storm rises what can be easily considered the Finns’ masterpiece.”
BURNING POINT‘s fourth album, “Empyre”, came out in February 2009.
