Jon Oliva (SAVATAGE, JON OLIVA’S PAIN) has recorded guest vocals on two songs for inclusion on the new album from Italian folk/power metallers ELVENKING, due this fall via AFM Records.

ELVENKING entered Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland on February 24 with producer Nino Laurenne (AMORPHIS, LORDI, SONATA ARCTICA, APOCALYPTICA) to begin recording the new CD. Nino previously worked with the band on “The Winter Wake” and “The Scythe” CDs.

ELVENKING recently parted ways with bassist Gorlan and replaced him with Jakob.

Drummer Zender left ELVENKING last year for “personal” reasons and was replaced by Symohn.

ELVENKING’s most recent album, “Red Silent Tides”, was released on September 17, 2010 in Europe (November 9, 2010 in North America) via AFM Records.
