Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – 8 October 2008 – VoTuM was formed in 2003 and have performed regularly in clubs in Warsaw and other places in Poland, actively promoting a single entitled "Jestem" which was released attached to Heavy Metal Pages magazine in May 2006. September 2006, however, brought significant changes not only for the band’s line-up, but also for the repertoire and the style of the music which took on a more progressive mood. After an eight-month period of working on new music, eight brand new tracks were recorded in the DBX Recording Studio in Warsaw, with Jacek Melnicki as the sound producer. 
The record was entitled "Time must have a stop". Votum is not only concerned with sound though. The band pay the utmost attention to song lyrics which, like the music, function as a sort of a binding material for the compositions. In addition, rich visual setting is provided by Mindfield Art Group and serves as a background for the pieces. The merging of music, lyrics and visual art work, as well as the ensuing emotional expression, have been the key concepts for the creation of the new album. Their main concern is not any particular style of music, but the atmosphere pouring out of it. 

The band had this to say about signing with ProgRock Records, "We are really happy to inform, that we have just signed a record deal with ProgRock Records! Up to this point we had been looking for a well established label with traditions in the genre and we are certain that ProgRock Records is the perfect choice. Also, we are currently working on our first video for our first single ‘The Pun’ – to be released soon. Hopefully, it will allow us to reach out to you and capture your hearts and minds." 

"I have a soft spot for good Progski (Polish Prog) and Votum joins Sandstone on our label as a talented young band that has some of the flavor that we all enjoy from the area. I’m sure you will enjoy them as much as I do.", said Shawn Gordon, President of ProgRock Records. 

"Time Must Have A Stop" is the ProgRock Records debut release from Votum and can be found at The album will be released in early November 2008 but is available for immediate pre-sale at a $2 discount.

Best Regards,
Shawn Gordon
ProgRock Records
