  FIREWIND ANNOUNCE NEW LIVE ALBUM
16th April 2013

firewind



Greek melodic Metallers Firewind, featuring guitar-wizard Gus G., have recently returned from an extensive North American tour together with Turisas and Stolen Babies, on which Kelly Sundown Carpenter (Adagio, Beyond Twilight) debuted as session frontman.

Now, Firewind are happy to reveal that they will be releasing a new live album on June 24th, 2013 via Century Media Records in Europe to celebrate the 10th band anniversary in style. Entitled 'Apotheosis – Live 2012', the album will contain 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 with a playing time of 69 minutes featuring a great overview of the band's career so far, which spans over seven studio albums so far.

This live-album also marks the final release with long term singer Apollo Papathanasio, who decided to step down from his duties as singer by the end of last year.

Firewind's Gus G. has checked in to comment the release as follows: "Apotheosis = the glorification of a subject to a divine level.

"That is the word that came to my mind, while thinking of how I could best describe the feeling and the vibe of those four anniversary shows we played in our homeland Greece and our last European headline tour in 2012! So that had to be our live album's title.

"You can feel the energy on these recordings, you can hear the screams of the most hardcore fans and the Firewind chants... it's all there.

"No doubt about it, it's the sheer love from our fans and supporters that has kept us alive and strong for 10 years and we wanted to celebrate all that with this album.

"We recorded all those shows, chose the best performances and now we can't wait to release this one! See you out there this spring and summer on European festival stages!"

Firewind's latest studio album, 'Few Against Many', was mixed by Jason Suecof and Eyal Levi at Audiohammer Studios (Trivium, All That Remains, Death Angel, etc.) and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (Mastodon, Hatebreed, Symphony X, etc.). The iconic album's artwork was once again created by Firewind's longtime partner in all design matters, Gustavo Sazes/www.abstrata.net (Arch Enemy, Angra, Dream Evil, etc.).

While the album's standard version is available in the CD format as well as LP and also as Digital Download, 'Few Against Many' is also released as limited edition Digipak CD with two bonus tracks. 'Few Against Many' occupied the national sales charts in Greece at the # 1 top spot for several weeks!

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
