BATTLELORE frontman Tomi Mykkänen has checked in with the following update:

“Guess what guys and gals?! No, we are not returning just yet. But something I’ve promised to you a long time ago. If you have no idea about the past of the band go and check yourself. I just uploaded Battlelore’s first demo, Warrior’s Tale, from 1999. It’s quite a different band; it’s rough but still it’s true Battlelore. Enjoy!”

The tracklist is as follows:

‘The Ring Of Power’
‘Black Legions’
‘Raise Your Swords’
‘Gift Of The Woods’

Jyri Vahvanen – guitars
Miika Kokkola – bass
Gorthaur – drums
Tommi Havo – raging vocals
Patrik Mennander – clean vocals

Hanna Partanen – female vocals
Arto Mäkikuusela – keyboard

Battlelore went on hiatus in late 20111. They issued the following statement:

“Battlelore played their – for the time being – last show abroad in Belgium, at Metal Female Voices Festival IX, on Friday October 21st 2011. After that the band is going on an indefinite break from touring and making music. This is not the end, however, just a time-out to focus on other aspects of life and build up more creative energy for the future. The plan is to play one more show in Finland before the break to thank the Finnish fans for their support over the years. The details of the last show are not confirmed yet but will be announced as soon as the information comes.

There’s no drama behind the decision to go on break, just a need to take a step back and have a breather. We want to thank all of our associates and supporters for the help and work over the past nearly 12 years, we’ve been lucky to have met and worked with such wonderful people! The biggest thanks definitely go to our amazing fans, without whom none of this would’ve been possible. We are honoured to have met you all and are humbled by your generosity and support! You all have a place in our hearts and we will always cherish the amazing moments we’ve shared with you on and off stage.

Elen síla lúmenn’ omentielvo. (A star shines on the hour of our meeting.)”
