In other news, The new acclaimed album release by Greek melodic Metallers Firewind, “Days Of Defiance”, continues to do extremely well all over the globe and consequently the band’s mastermind and guitarist Gus G. has appeared on the frontcover of several relevant print magazines like Burrn!, Guitar World, Young Guitar, Rock Hard Greece and many more in these past weeks. View a compilation of the features above!

The Greek metal phenomenon Firewind, led by the young guitar sensation Gus G. has returned with the scathing new effort Days of Defiance, which is easily their defining moment. The much anticipated disc is set for an Oct. 26th North American release (Oct. 25th throughout Europe) and it’s a truly ambitious and dynamic opus featuring some of the most brilliant guitar playing the genre has seen in many years. Be sure to stay tuned to www.myspace.com/firewind in the coming weeks for the new album’s cover art and track listing.

Here is a preview of the new album:

The “World On Fire” single will be available for purchase on digital platforms starting on 8/17, so keep an eye out for that.

Gus G. further states: “Usually when we write an album we let the music come to us and go with the flow. Maybe that’s why our albums have variety and you can hear everything from super heavy songs, to speed metal shredding, to rock anthems and ballads. Days of Defiance wasn’t much different in the making, but this time we recorded almost all of it in our home studios, which allowed us to be more relaxed. That’s why I feel the new album features the best performances by all of us. One of our main goals though was to get a bit more of an ‘unpolished’ sound and be more raw. I think we achieved it and that gives an extra heaviness to the overall sound. We mixed the album in Helsinki, Finland at Sonic Pump Studios. Nino Laurenne (Thunderstone) and Tapio Pennanen mixed it and they did a killer job. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”
