Norwegian power metallers GAIA EPICUS have posted the following message on their official web site:

"GAIA EPICUS has broken the contract with Sound Riot Records. After this last episode with the label we have decided to end the contract with them. SR has broken too many parts of the contract and we can't except it anymore. We are now in contact with lawyers both in Norway and Portugal and will state our demands to SR very soon. If they do not agree we might be taking them to court, but we hope to have an agreement without going to court. We are also in the progress of finding a new label to release the new album, and we hope to have a contract on this soon."

The follow-up to 2003's "Satrap", GAIA EPICUS's second album, "Symphony of Glory", was recorded and mixed over a five-week period at Top Room Studios (TRISTANIA, VINTERSORG, BORKNAGAR) with producer Børge Finstad and will feature artwork by Michael A. Mueller (MEGADETH). The CD was mastered at Bazement Studios (MOB RULES, VANDEN PLAS, SYMPHONY X) in Germany.
