The Greek metal phenomenon FIREWIND, led by the young guitar sensation Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne), has returned with the scathing new effort Days of Defiance, which is easily their defining moment. The much anticipated disc is set for a fall release and it’s a truly ambitious and dynamic opus featuring some of the most brilliant guitar playing the genre has seen in many years.

FIREWIND are also currently featured on Metal Hammer UK’s May edition (Issue 205) Judas Priest Tribute CD presenting a blistering version of the classic “Breaking The Law” track to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the British Steel album. For more information, please visit www.metalhammer.co.uk
Gus G. further states: “I know it’s been a few silent months, but this time we decided to be pretty quiet about the recording process of our new album. Anyways, before we go into revealing more info, we recently did a very fun project which was to be a part of Metal Hammer UK’s Judas Priest Tribute CD.
“We actually recorded everything for that cover song in our home studios and then passed over the files to Fredrik Nordström/Studio Fredman in Sweden for the mix. This also marks our first recording with our new drummer, Michael Ehre, and the end result is killer (in our humble opinion), as we got to cover one of metal’s most classic songs “Breaking The Law.”
“As for our new album, it’s scheduled for a release sometime this fall and the name of it is Days of Defiance. We’ll check back soon to reveal more info, song names, etc. We can’t wait for you to all hear this and we promise it will be worth the wait.”
