    Nice. The new logo looks kind of cool. Cannot wait for that announcement.

    Swedish progressive death metallers SKYFIRE have signed with Florida's Pivotal Rockordings. The band has entered Powernest Studios to begin recording their highly anticipated, as-of-yet-untitled follow-up to 2004's "Spectral." Mixing and mastering will be handled by Jonas Kjellgren (SCAR SYMMETRY) at Black Lounge Studios (SONIC SYNDICATE, SCAR SYMMETRY, THE ABSENCE, ZONARIA).

    The group's newest member, ELOHIM vocalist Joakim Karlsson comments:

    "I was honored when I was asked to join SKYFIRE. This is a challenge I could never turn down in a million years, and I cannot wait to hit the studio with the band and be a part of this album as well as future albums to come! It's also an honor to be a part of the Pivotal Rockordings family. I'm excited to see what they can do for us and what we can do for them."

    Adds SKYFIRE bassist and founding member Martin Hanner:

    "It's been almost four years since we released "Spectral" and we are overjoyed to finally say that we have signed a deal with an amazing record label and will get to work on our next album. We were talking with a few labels over these last few years, but none of them were as helpful and hard working as the Pivotal Rockordings guys, who we have been in touch with for over a year. At this point, we couldn't imagine signing with anyone else!"

    "As far as the new album goes, expect the traditional SKYFIRE sound, but also expect some new elements that we have never experimented with before. We also cannot wait to work with Jonas Kjellgren, who will be mixing and mastering the new record. He is one of the most talented up and coming producers in metal right now, and we are certain that he will take SKYFIRE's sound to the next level!"

    Adds Pivotal Rockordings co-founder Leevan Macomeau:

    "It's an honor to collaborate with such a world-class band as SKYFIRE. They have had some record label problems in the past and despite everything still managed to build a loyal fanbase! That alone says a lot about the perseverance and talent of SKYFIRE. After nearly a year of helping and communicating with the band I am proud to announce their signing of a three album record deal with Pivotal Rockordings! As Pivotal Rockordings grows out of its baby years, which saw the emergence of world-class acts SONIC SYNDICATE and ZONARIA, and we head into our adult years armed with multi-album deals for deathcore newcomers STIGMA and progressive death metal veterans SKYFIRE, expect us to continue providing a barrage of metallic goodness in 2008!"

    The myspace page looks bad azz now, hope the website looks just as cool when it is done being constructed.

    Hoping for an album title too. :)

    I'd probably prefer that logo better without all the twiddly shit in the background and that dodgy (gay) looking flame on top. Just the name on its own would have been fine. Now it looks like something a power metal band would use... unless... oh god no... anything but that! Nah, they'll never go straight up power metal, I hope. I'm expecting clean vocals though, unfortunately.

    I do not expect any clean vocals at all, and I can guarantee they will never release anything close to resembling shit ass power metal.

    I have always wondered how Skyfire would sound with clean vocals. Not that I really want them, but I have just been curious as to how they would fit in or not. I prefer them not change their vocal format, but experimenting wouldn't hurt either. It may help the sound for all that we know. We shall see.

    If the new singer Joakim's earlier vocal experiences are anything to go by, you needn't worry.
