Greek melodic Power metal masters FIREWIND, the group led by guitar-wizard and Ozzy Osbourne band member Gus G., are proud to announce the release of their upcoming 8th studio album, Immortals, which will be released on January 20th, 2017 via AFM Records in North America (Century Media Records in Europe).

Gus G. checked in to comment about Immortals and its artwork (which can be seen below) as follows:

“Today we're very happy to reveal the cover artwork for our 8th 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 2nd Persian invasion of Greece in 480 BC. 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, working 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. The album’s tracklisting reads as follows:

  • "Hands Of Time"
  • "We Defy"
  • "Ode To Leonidas"
  • "Back On The Throne"
  • "Live And Die By The Sword"

  • "Lady Of 1000 Sorrows"
  • "Immortals"
  • "Warriors And Saints"
  • "Rise From The Ashes"
  • "Vision Of Tomorrow" (bonus track on Digipak)
A first album’s online single is set to debut on November 25th, 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 below.
