Burning Point- new sparks in the fire.

Northern Finland based heavy metallers Burning Point announces their new line-up. As previously reported, Pete Ahonen stepped down from the lead singers thrown just to hand it to Nitte Valo (ex- Battle Beast). Her unique voice can be heard on their upcoming 6th album Polttopiste. Jukka Jokikokko played bass in the band for 8 years and on 3 albums. He left the band due to personal reasons, no drama included. Jukka still remains as a heavy metal brother to the band. New bassist is Sami "Sammy" Nyman (Ghost Machinery). Nyman states: "This is just an amazing opportunity for me. I've known the music and the guys for several years and I feel lucky as hell. It's not a new crew for me as we've done a few miles together, especially with Pete (Ahonen, guitar), Jussi (Ontero, drums) and Jarkko (Väisänen, keyboards). You can't go wrong playing kick-ass heavy metal with a bunch of great friends, right? A big thank you to Jukka for good times! Can't wait to get the new album released." There is no valid release date to their new album, as they are going thru negotiations with different record labels. Next year they will do multiple festival shows in the summer, first show with the new line-up will be played with Sonata Arctica in their hometown Oulu, on 14th of January 2015..

Nitte Valo (ex-Battle Beast) joins Burning Point as a new singer!

Finnish melodic metal band, Burning Point, recruited a new singer and a new keyboardist. "2009 when we parted ways with Pasi (Hiltula), we decided we would continue without an "official" player in the band and use a "hired gun" in the gigs. Jarkko (Väisänen) was our first choice and he has been with us for a while now. He is a solid player and really cool guy to be with. We are very happy that he decided to join BP ranks as an official keyboardist", band states. Pete also decided to step down from the lead-vocalist position and continue as a guitarist. "Well, it has been a one helluva ride for 15 years to handle both, vocals and guitar, but now we thought it was time to try something totally new. I love playing and singing live, I love to be on the spotlight...but also I want the band to be in constant motion and moving forward", says Pete. "Nitte is perfect choice as a new frontma...oh woman :), very powerful voice and an awesome stage performer!"

"These guys are awesome and the music, just great! I love all the Burning Point songs! I’ve been away from the world of heavy metal for a while now, but now with these guys, I am back! I’m very excited and anxious to start recording the new stuff and just waiting to be on stage with Burning Point", Nitte explains.

Band will start recording the new album within two weeks and the working title is "Polttopiste". More news coming very soon, stay fired up!

Nitte Valo (ex-Battle Beast) on Burning Pointin uusi laulaja!

Suomalainen metalliyhtye Burning Point on kiinnittänyt riveihinsä uuden laulajan ja uuden kosketinsoittajan.

Bändiä 15 vuotta luotsannut Pete Ahonen veti viimeisen keikkansa laulusolistina heinäkuussa, ja tästä eteenpäin keulakuvana toimii Nitte Valo, joka vaikutti aiemmin Battle Beast -yhtyeessä. Pete päätti vetäytyä syrjään laulusolistin paikalta ja jatkaa kitaristina.

"Olen hoitanut solistin ja kitaristin hommia 15 vuotta ja nauttinut joka hetkestä, mutta nyt päätimme kokeilla jotain uutta. Pidän laulamisesta ja valokeilassa olemisesta, mutta haluan bändin kehittyvän koko ajan", Pete sanoo. "Nitte on täydellinen valinta nokkamie... naiseksi, voimakasääninen ja loistava lavalla!"

"Bändin tyypit ovat hyviä jätkiä, ja musiikki on tietysti pääasia. Rakastan Burning Pointin biisejä. Olen ollut hetken poissa metallikuvioista, mutta nyt teen paluun tässä kokoonpanossa. Odotan innolla uuden levyn nauhoituksia ja sitä, että pääsen keikoille bändin kanssa", Nitte valottaa.

Samalla bändin kokoonpano vakiintuu muutenkin. "Kun tiemme Pasin (Hiltula) kanssa erosivat vuonna 2009, päätimme jatkaa ilman pysyvää kosketinsoittajaa. Jarkko (Väisänen) oli ensimmäinen vaihtoehto keikkasoittajaksi, ja hän on ollut nyt mukana jo pitkään. Hän on osaava muusikko ja mahtava bändikaveri. Olemme iloisia, että hän päätti liittyä viralliseksi jäseneksi", bändi toteaa.

Bändi alkaa loppukesän aikana nauhoittaa uutta levyä, jonka työnimenä on"Polttopiste".

New deal!

Finnish melodic metallers Burning Point have signed a deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their new album ‘The Ignitor’. 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. ‘The Ignitor’ was recorded at HelGate and Reindeer Horns Studios and mastered at Tico Tico Studios (Sonata Arctica, Sentenced) byAhti Kortelainen. The beautiful cover artwork was handled by Felipe Machado Franco (Blind Guardian, Rhapsody Of Fire, Iron Savior). Follow all the latest news on www.scarletrecords.it and www.burning-point.com.

Sparks from The Ignitor promotional CD ready to rock!

Hello you all and sorry for the long silence!

Although, it might seem that nothing's happening in BP camp, but we can assure you, we've been busy as hell recording the new album!

You might know already that we decided to leave from the previous label, Metal Heaven, and we are currently searching the new one to work with :)

We just finished the 6- track promo-cd and we named it, Sparks from The Ignitor! Songs are once again KILLERS, fast & furious, heavy & hard!!! Classic Burning Point!

The track-list is as follows:

1. Holier Than Thou
2. Losing Sleep
3. The Ignitor
4. Silent Scream
5. The Lost Tribe
6. Heaven is Hell

The cd will be sent to the labels far and wide within the week and let's all keep our fingers crossed :)

A little sad-note is that, we decided to part ways with our keyboardist Pasi Hiltula. He is truly one of the best players in the world and awesome friend, but he has so many iron's in the fire and he had to cancel lots of BP gigs because of that and we had to do those shows as a 4 piece.

We wish him all the best in his future musical journey and thank you for the times in BP!

What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger they say...and we are now very strong unit and we're ready to rock you all!

Keep it heavy and stay tuned fo more news!!!

Burning Point part ways with the drummer

Burning Point..s original drummer, Jari Kaiponen, decided to left from the bands line-up. This is very unfortuned thing, but the signs of that have been "in the air" for a few years, the bands states. The new drummer was found very close by. Jussi Ontero, former keyboardist, will take over the drums and the new keyboardist will be joining the group. The band has recorded 17 tracks ( + intro ), 11 totally new, 4 covers and new versions from 2 older songs. The complete track list, album quests, new line-up etc. will be announced soon.

Here is Jari Kaiponen in his own words:
Hello everybody, I have an announcement to make that I decided to quit the drumming for Burning Point. It was tough and kind of sad decision and I..ve been thinking to giving up for a while. I just couldn..t handle the schedules and time limits for the next album etc. Also I felt that my personal time was very limited and I want to give 100% if I..m gonna keep doing this. That..s why I felt that it was better for me to step aside. Now on I..m consentrating fully on National Napalm Syndicate, which is my other band. I wanna thank all the nice people, fans and bands I have met and all people who worked with the band during these past 9 years. Also I wanna thank the BP guys: Pete, Pekka, Jukka and Jussi. The ex-members: Jukka K. and Jöpe! There..s been lot..s of good memories and even some bad, but all this has been quite a ride and important part of my life! Thanks and all the best, Jari Kaiponen.

We thank Jari for all these years and wish him good luck in the future paths, Pete, Jukka, Jussi and Pekka

BURNING POINT aloittaa uuden promovideon kuvaukset tulevana lauantaina 17. maaliskuuta. Videon tuottajana toimii North Crest Media ja kuvaajana Jukka Häkkilä. "Heart of Gold" -biisistä tehtävän videon kuvaukset aiotaan saattaa päätökseen pikaiseen tahtiin, jopa tuon viikonlopun aikana.

Kaksi aikaisempaa videoclippiä saavat nyt siis komean seuralaisen. Ensimmäiseltä albumilta, "Salvation by Fire", julkaistiin "Fall of thy Kingdom" joka pomppasi heti silloisen MoonTV:n videolistan kärkeen. Myös toiselta levyltä, "Feeding the Flames", kuvattiin todella pienen budjetin klippi "Into the Fire ", joka päätyi levyn Japanin-julkaisuun.

BURNING POINT starts the new promovideo filming in next Saturday the 17th of March. Producer of the video will be the North Crest Media and the camera-man/engineer Jukka Häkkilä. "Heart of Gold" was a track the band choose for the video and time schedule of shootings are very tight and they are going to finish filming in that same weekend.

Two earlier videoclips are going to have a great companion. From the first album "Salvation by fire" they released "Fall of thy Kingdom" which climed to the top of the video list in one of Finnish national cabel TV-cannels "MoonTV" video charts, from the second album, "Feeding the Flames", they made a very low budget video clip "Into to Fire" that was released in Japanese edition of the album.

"First, it is honor to be a part of this group full of great musicians. I have known Pete for some time now. We have done music together in another band called STARGAZERY. I also knew Jari before. On 'Burned Down the Enemy' I was as studio engineer and I get to know rest of the band, Jussi and later Pekka. "BURNING POINT didn't have a bass player at the time, so Pete and folks asked to me do I want to play some tracks in the album. I played 12 tracks to 14 recorded and Pete played rest two. It felt pretty good to play those songs and then band had a suprise gig in Club Teatria and I had opportunity to go on stage with these guys. Gig was amazing and chemistry of the band worked great since first training session. We had some conversations and I informed that I am available as a bassist if they want. So I didn't have nothing much to think, when they asked me to join the band. 'Of course' was only right answer."

"We did promise a studio diary in the beginning, but unfortunately my computer crashed at one time and took all of my markings to the "bit heaven", so i can`t give you a really detailed diary, sorry..." , says the bands spokesman, Pete.

Here is some details though...Recordings has been proceeding nicely ( despite the few "problems" ;) and they are on the final stages before the mixing and mastering. First time in the Burning Point`s history there is 2 drummers to be heard on the album. There are few line-up changes too, our second guitarist Jukka Kyrö and bassplayer Toni " Jöpe" Kansanoja wanted to pursue their career with their other bands. Jukka with NNS and "Jöpe" with Catamenia. We were fortunate to get the new guitarist, Pekka Kolivuori, to replace Jukka. He also playes in another band, Sicknote, which represents maybe more "darker" side of metal music. Go check for yourselves, www.sicknote1.com The bass tracks on the album is played by Pete ( in 2 songs, Bring me Oblivion and the title track, Burned down the enemy ) and a long time friend of the band, Jukka "Hesus " Jokikokko ( all the rest 12 songs ) more details soon...
