=========================================
MARK BOALS
==========
The former Yngwie Malmsteen singer, Mark Boals has licensed his new
solo album "Ring Of Fire" to the Anglo/Italian label for the territory
of Europe!

The album has already been hailed in various sources as a "true
masterpiece of neoclassic metal!".

"Ring Of Fire" is Boals second solo album and features Mark himself on
bass and all lead vocals along with the likes of TONY MCALPINE (Planet X
and world renowned guitar player) on all guitars, VITALIJ KUPRIJ
(Artension) on keyboards and drummer extraordinaire VIRGIL DONATI
(also Planet X).

The front cover artowork was supplied by famous Belgian artist, Eric
Philippe, who has worked with the likes of Rhapsody, Stratovarius,
Riot and Gamma Ray.

The release date for Europe is set to be on December 4th, 2000.

INTO THE LIGHT
==============
Another great signing for Now & Then/Frontiers Records is Into The
Light, the brand new studio project featuring the fretless guitar
maestro TIM DONAHUE with Hurricane singer KELLY HANSEN.

Into The Light is a piece of art which mixes a unique guitar style
approach to the songs along with the true talent of Kelly Hansen, who
handles all vocals.

The musical style of Into The Light can be best described as very
original class metal with hard rock and peculiar AOR elements.

The European release date of the album is set to be December 4th,
while the American release shall follow in January 2001.
