GUS G. Says FIREWIND Still Hasn't Found Permanent Replacement For APOLLO PAPATHANASIO
In a brand new interview with Alternative Nation, Greek guitar virtuoso Gus G., well known in rock and metal circles for his work as Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist and as leader of his own band FIREWIND, was asked if if there are any plans for FIREWIND to write and record its eighth studio album. "Not at the moment," Gus replied. "The band is on a break and we still haven't found a singer we want to work with, so we're going to take our time and there's no rush. I'm also very busy with my solo thing right now. I'm out on the road until Christmas and then I will be doing more touring in the beginning of 2015. I think there'll be another solo record from [me] before we see another FIREWIND album." 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. FIREWIND's latest album, "Few Against Many", entered the official chart in Greece at No. 42 and in Germany at No. 90. Released in Europe on May 21, 2012 via Century Media Records and in North America on May 22 through DisManic, Inc. via eOne Distribution, the CD was mixed by Jason Suecof and Eyal Levi at Audiohammer Studios (TRIVIUM, ALL THAT REMAINS, DEATH ANGEL) in Sanford, Florida. A special expanded edition of Gus' solo album, "I Am The Fire", will be released in Europe on November 3 (digitally in North America on November 4). This limited CD + DVD digipak will feature four bonus tracks and a 62-minute bonus DVD (including the album's four official video clips so far, plus three live tracks, six guitar tutorials, as well as an EPK and track-by-track commentary).
THRESHOLD: 'Unforgiven' Video Released
"Unforgiven", the new video from British progressive metallers THRESHOLD, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's latest album, "For The Journey", which came out on September 22 via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2012's "March Of Progress" was produced at Thin Ice Studios in England by THRESHOLD members Karl Groom (guitars) and Richard West (keyboards) and was mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox in Finland. "For The Journey" marks THRESHOLD's second release with vocalist Damian Wilson since his return to the band in 2007. Damian told Prog magazine about the band's relationship and how easy it was recording the new album: "I think it's just the fact that we've become really good friends and it's the companionship in the band," he said. "We seem to care a lot about each other and we've become really close. So we thoroughly enjoy making music together." "For The Journey" track listing: 01. Watchtower On The Moon 02. Unforgiven 03. The Box 04. Turned To Dust 05. Lost In Your Memory 06. Autumn Red 07. The Mystery Show 08. Siren Sky Bonus tracks: 09. I Wish I Could (digipak, vinyl and digital versions) 10. Lost In Your Memory (acoustic version) (vinyl and digital versions) Commented West: "'For The Journey' is one of our strongest albums and one of the most enjoyable to make. I've probably heard it a thousand times during the recording process, but now that's it's over, I still can't stop listening to it!" The cover artwork was created by Polish artist Leszek Bujnowski, whom THRESHOLD found on the Internet. "He's designed some beautiful pieces and we thought this was a perfect THRESHOLD cover," stated West.
