FIREWIND originally formed in Thessaloniki, Greece in 1998 but started in earnest after Gus moved to the United States. “For some time I studied at Berklee College of music in the USA. Some friends helped me to put together a demo, that I named FIREWIND, after an album of Uli Jon Roth’s band Electric Sun. I sent this demo around and got a couple of offers.” The demo was well received and Gus signed with Leviathan Records who put out the band’s first records, “Between Heaven And Hell” and “Burning Earth”. The band began touring the world, including a Japanese run with Rob Rock and a worldwide deal with Century Media Records was soon signed.The first album as part of that deal (“Forged By Fire”) further established the band but it was the follow up “Allegiance” that really put the band on the international map. Gus had finally found the right members (with the arrival of Time Requiem singer Apollo Papathanasio) and the subsequent two years of touring in support nike coupon code of “Allegiance” (opening for Dragonforce and All That Remains) saw the band hit three continents and clock up thousands of miles. The hard work paid off as both "Allegiance" and the acclaimed follow up "The Premonition" albums made it to the Top 10 in Greece and the "Mercenary Man" single became a Top 5 hit. "The Premonition" also charted in Japan, a territory that has majorly embraced and supported the band since their inception.Despite the band’s growing success, Gus was always ready to get back out on the road so when Arch Enemy needed a temporary tour guitarist, Gus was first in line and it was on Arch Enemy’s 2005 Ozzfest appearances that he first caught the eye of the Osbourne camp. But it wasn’t until 4 years later when Gus was invited to audition for the guitar role in Ozzy’s band. Gus was then asked to first perform with the band at ‘Blizzcon 2009’, where he ripped through Ozzy classics such as ‘Crazy Train’, ‘Mr Crowley’ and ‘Bark At The Moon’ with aplomb. Subsequently, Gus played on Ozzy’s “Scream” record and toured the world as Ozzy’s new guitarist as well as releasing FIREWIND’s acclaimed “Days Of Defiance” album in 2010, and hitting stages across the globe with his own band.A notoriously hard worker, Gus is rarely without a guitar in his hand and justifiably won the ‘Best Shredder’ award at this year’s Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards ceremony in London. The “Days Of Defiance” tour took FIREWIND across the world again, including appearances at Hellfest, Sonisphere UK, Graspop and Basinfirefest, plus tours of Japan, U.S.A., Canada and Europe.
Greek melodic power metal masters FIREWIND, the group led by guitar wizard and OZZY OSBOURNE band member Gus G., will release their eighth studio album, "Immortals", on January 20, 2017 via the band's longtime label partner Century Media Records in Europe.Gus G. checked in to comment about "Immortals" and its artwork (which can be seen below): "Today we're very happy to reveal the cover artwork for our eighth studio album. It's titled 'Immortals' and it's the first concept album FIREWIND has ever made."Since we're from Greece, we thought it would be a cool idea to make a concept of Greek history and heritage. So on this album we focused on the legendary battles of Thermopylae and Salamis during the second Persian invasion of Greece in 480 B.C."The artwork was once again created by our longtime collaborator, Gustavo Sazes, and we feel it reflects the vibe we tried to capture on this album — epic, powerful, glorious, everlasting.""Immortals" marks the first time FIREWIND used an outside co-producer, having worked with Dennis Ward (UNISONIC, PINK CREAM 69), who not only engineered, mixed and mastered the album, but also co-wrote it together with Gus G.In addition to the standard jewel case CD and digital download formats, "Immortals" will be released as LP on 180-gram vinyl with a poster as well as the entire album on CD as bonus. Additionally, there will also be a limited-edition mediabook CD with expanded booklet, a bonus track and three stickers. Look out for more details and pre-order details soon.A first album's online single is set to debut on November 25, but in the meantime you can already check out a few sample riffs in a play-through clip that Gus G. recorded in co-operation with Toontrack's EZmix 2 and the Metal Guitar Gods 4 EZmix Pack expansion.In order to support the release of "Immortals", FIREWIND is set to hit the road across Europe."Immortals" marks FIREWIND's first release with singer Henning Basse (METALIUM, SONS OF SEASONS), who previously toured with the band on various continents in 2007 and was most recently the singer in Gus's solo touring group.Said FIREWIND in a statement: "Since , [Henning] started playing some shows with Gus G.'s solo band and he delivered amazing performances, stunning the crowds all over Europe! Henning is an amazing frontman and a personality that totally fits with what FIREWIND is all about."FIREWIND celebrated its 10th anniversary by releasing a live album in June 2013 via Century Media Records in Europe. Titled "Apotheosis - Live 2012", the CD contained 17 songs recorded at special anniversary shows in Greece as well as all over Europe during the band's "Few Against Many" tour in 2012. It marked FIREWIND's final release with singer Apollo Papathanasio, who decided to leave the group at the end of 2012.FIREWIND toured in 2013 in support of "Apotheosis - Live 2012", with Kelly Sundown Carpenter (ADAGIO, BEYOND TWILIGHT) handling lead vocals on the trek.
