FIREWIND - Immortals (20 janvier 2017)

Message par Pietro le Ven 18 Nov 2016, 12:18

New FIREWIND Studio Album "IMMORTALS" set for January 2017 release!

Greek melodic Power metal masters FIREWIND, are proud to announce the release of their upcoming 8th studio album, ”Immortals”, which will be released on January 20th, 2017 via the band’s longtime label partner Century Media Records in Europe & AFM Records in North America.

Gus G checks in to comment about “Immortals” and its artwork: “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:

FIREWIND – “Immortals”:
1. Hands Of Time
2. We Defy
3. Ode To Leonidas
4. Back On The Throne
5. Live And Die By The Sword
6. Wars Of Ages
7. Lady Of 1000 Sorrows
8. Immortals
9. Warriors And Saints
10. Rise From The Ashes

Next to the standard jewel case CD and Digital Download formats, “Immortals” will also be released as LP on 180gr vinyl with a poster as well as the entire album on CD as bonus. Additionally, there will also be a limited edition Mediabook CD with expanded booklet, a bonus track and 3 stickers. Look out for more details and pre-order details soon…

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 here:

Ouais, et Rastatopoulos est parti, laissant le chant à Henning Basse, ancien chanteur de Metalium.
Les deux derniers albums étaient franchement pas fantastiques... Alors que Allegiance et The Premonition étaient excellents!

...et  il sort un album solo (en plus de Spiritual Beggars):

"Revolution For The Brave", a brand new song from former FIREWIND and current SPIRITUAL BEGGARS vocalist Apollo Papathanasio, can be streamed below. The track is taken from Papathanasio's new solo album, "Waterdevils", which was released on November 18 via Escape Music. The CD was recorded and mixed at Global Musix Studio in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Jalle Westergen.

After more than two decades of contributing with his voice and songwriting on studio albums, finally it is time for Apollo to deliver his first solo album. And it's has been a long road leading to "Waterdevils".

Apollo's career started at the age of 14 when the young Apostolos from Swedish town Borås, inspired by bands like KISS and ALICE COOPER, and he started playing with various bands, as an aspiring guitarist.

"Not many wanted to be vocalists back in those old days; everybody wanted to play the guitar, nobody wanted to sing," he explains. "So I just made the decision to become a singer."

Apollo joined his first bands BLAZON and CRAZE at the age of 17. CRAZE released a single, "Living In Sin", but the band disbanded shortly thereafter when Apollo left to do his military service in 1988. It took another eight years before Apollo recorded his first full album with the band FAITH TABOO.

"We started out as a cover band, but I didn't want to waste time just playing other people's songs, so I had everybody get involved in writing songs for our self-financed album, 'Psycopath' [released in 1996]," he says. The band continued playing local gigs, they eventually called it a day and Apollo joined the band MAJESTIC.

His singing career took off and when he sang with bands and projects in quick succession: TIME REQUIEM, MEDUZA, SANDALINAS, and EVIL MASQUERADE, to mention but a few.

TIME REQUIEM was mixing its album in Studio Fredman in Gothenburg in late 2005 when studio owner and producer Fredrik Nordström introduced Apollo to a guitarist Gus G., who was also working in his studio. "Fredrik said he wanted me to meet this Greek guy, he thought we would get along, 'cause we were both Greek," Apollo says. "It clicked right away. Gus asked me to join his band FIREWIND, but I had to turn down the offer because I was studying at the time and didn't have time for another band. He asked again about six months later, and by that time I was done with my studies so we went for it. It was magic. It felt like it was finally the real deal and we were all on the same musical level."

The years with FIREWIND definitely and finally put Apollo on the map. He recorded four albums with the band and toured with the likes of Y&T, SCORPIONS, JUDAS PRIEST and WHITESNAKE, among others, playing big festivals such as Download, Graspop Metal Meeting, Sweden Rock Festival and more.

Apollo parted company with FIREWIND in January 2013 and decided to focus on SPIRITUAL BEGGARS (with ARCH ENEMY guitarist Michael Amott), whom he had joined in 2010. The ensuing two years were spent writing, recording and collaborating with friends from bands like KING DIAMOND, HELLOWEEN, GAMMA RAY, ARCH ENEMY, GRAND MAGUS, METALIUM, MASTERPLAN and many more.

"I originally wanted to release the material under a band name or as a project, but people kept saying it was about time that I go solo and step out as a solo artist," he explains. "So I decided to take the plunge."

"Waterdevils" is the result of Apollo's free musical spirit where he has liberated himself from all rules and just done whatever he wanted to do.

"I wanted to do this because it's fun and exciting, and also because I want to contribute to keeping classic rock alive," Apollo says.

"'Waterdevils' is a weather phenomenon. It's a small, weak whirlwind over water that's pretty rare. You never know where you'll see it or if you'll see it again. In a way it's a tribute to all of those who have contributed to this album. They showed up, unexpectedly and they might show up again, or maybe not, you just never know. Like waterdevils."

"Waterdevils" track listing:

01. Revolution For The Brave (3:52)
02. Liberate Yourself (3:35)
03. Buried In A Flame (3:51)
04. Safe And Sound (3:48)
05. Fallen Endlessly (5:30)
06. Crossing The Lines (5:10)
07. Power (3:10)
08. Rise Up (4:41)
09. I Need Rock 'N' Roll (4:27)
10. Chasing Shadows (4:35)
11. Through The Fire (4:31)
12. Stop (5:18)

Le morceau est sympa mais Firewind ne tient jamais sur un album entier. Dommage que ça n'aille jamais un peu plus loin. Et on a l'impression d'écouter toujours la même chose.

Sinon, le début du clip on en parle des mecs en slip ?

Pinaise, mais moi aussi, en fait!
Alors que ma première écoute m'avait très moyennement emballé. Mais là, c'est cool!
Le chanteur est franchement pas mal, certains passages sont très hard rock (le break sur Back On The Throne), et l'ensemble fonctionne bien mieux que sur les deux précédents que j'ai totalement oubliés...
