  GUS G. ANNOUNCES ALBUM RELEASE FROM SOLO DEAL WITH CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS
3 December 2013





Guitar virtuoso Gus G., well known in the Metal and Rock universe for his outstanding work as member of Ozzy Osbourne's band and as leader of his own group Firewind, has announced the signing of a new solo-artist contract with longtime international partners Century Media Records in order to co-operate on his debut solo-release entitled 'I Am The Fire' for the Spring of 2014.

Gus G. comments on the newly signed deal as follows: "Loyalty is a very important thing in the music business and for me it just felt natural to trust my first solo effort to the hands of the record company that has been loyal, supportive and has helped build my career for more than 11 years now - a label that I truly feel as a family. Thank you Robert Kampf, Leif Jensen, Antje Lange, Don Robertson, Steve Joh, Jens Prueter, Nasrin Vahdani, Paul Gargano and rest of Century Family! I truly feel blessed to be a part of the CM history and looking forward to exploring new territories with this new album!"

Century Media's founder and owner Robert Kampf checked in as well, adding: "Gus G.'s coming solo record 'I Am The Fire' is going to be another display of the amazing talent Gus possesses. We at Century Media are proud to work with a player and songwriter of his class and status as well as the fantastic new album that Gus has crafted. Horns up!"

'I Am The Fire' was mixed by Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour, Steel Panther, etc.) and was partly recorded in Los Angeles and partly in Gus's home country of Greece during the past months. Some song titles included on the release are 'Eyes Wide Open', 'Redemption', 'End Of The Line' and 'Blame It On Me'.

The album showcases a well-balanced and inspiring mixture of precise song writing, driven contemporary active rock songs, a classic Hard Rock vibe, pounding Metal cuts as well as breathtaking instrumentals. The album takes you on a diverse journey and opens the door to Gus G.'s soulful guitar playing. An exciting cast of talented guest musicians and great vocalists are also appearing on the album. The exact list of participants will be revealed throughout the coming weeks.

Gus G. has had an amazing rise within the scene and amassed an incredible body of work, both on the studio-album and worldwide touring fronts, from his early international inception as up and coming talent alongside the groups Dream Evil (Sweden), Mystic Prophecy (Germany) and Nightrage (Greece).

It was mainly the restless activity with his own band Firewind, with whom he has released a total of 7 studio albums and 2 live releases so far, as well as his invitation to join Ozzy Osbourne's line-up ranks for the Grammy nominated 'Scream' album release from 2010 and its consequent worldwide touring that fully boosted Gus G.'s reputation and profile to be now considered one of the leading guitarists in the current Metal/Rock scene.

This has been proven via awards such as "Best Metal Guitarist" from Guitar Player magazine, US, "Dimebag Darrell Shredder" from Metal Hammer UK Golden Gods Awards and three times poll winner for "Best Guitarist" from Metal Hammer, Greece.

'I Am The Fire', Gus G.'s long overdue solo debut album, will not only stress his skills and status, but also present interesting new facets to his range and an album as exquisite in performance as it is addictive in its catchiness. Look out for the album to street by the end of March 2014 via Century Media Records. More details will follow soon.

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.
