Thursday, April 10, 2008 - New Firewind video
Check out the new Firewind video for "Mercenary Man" here.

Guitarist Gus G. comments: "The video for 'Mercenary Man' is the third clip we shot with Patric Ullaeus. It was a great feeling going back to Sweden and working with him. When it comes to the visuals, he's our man. When I think of who could make us look like a million dollars, I think of Patric.

We basically did a couple of day's worth of shooting in his studio in Gothenburg and then he worked his magic in the editing process. I love the band editing and the fact that he gave such a crystal clear look to this video. Since the song is talking about a mercenary going out to war, the story evolves around a soldier and includes some pretty incredible footage of fighting jets, helicopters and tanks. We hope you like it."

Saturday, February 2, 2008 - FIREWIND Announces New Album Details; Posts New Track Online
In 2007, the Greek metal powerhouse Firewind began to solidify their spot as one of the genre's defining artists with Allegiance, a scorching metal opus with powerful, melodic hooks and bombastic guitarwork. Just a year later this phenomenon, led by the young guitar sensation Gus G. (ex-Dream Evil, Nightrage, Mystic Prophecy, Arch Enemy), has returned with The Premonition, which is easily their defining moment. The much anticipated offering is set for a March 25th release.

The captivating new track, "Mercenary Man," has just been posted on the band's MySpace page (Click here to open link) so head over now to check it out. A stunning new video for the track was recently shot by acclaimed director Patric Ullaeus (Dimmu Borgir, In Flames) and look for that to make its debut in the coming weeks.

Gus G. further states: "I feel that the new FIREWIND album is yet another step up in our career - musically speaking. Once again we wanted it to have variation. I really don't like those types of albums where you've listened to the first song and it's like you heard them all. This doesn't happen on FIREWIND albums and certainly not on this new one. Songwriting wise, I think all songs are special and once again everyone was involved in the writing as we basically kept the Allegiance 'winning team' together. Our influences draw from Thin Lizzy to Black Sabbath and Megadeth and you can clearly hear that on the riffs and guitar melodies."

This past fall, FIREWIND completed their inaugural North American tour performing alongside Sonata Arctica, Epica and Visions of Atlantis, which ultimately was capped off with a rousing performance at the prestigious ProgPower festival. Expect to see them make their much-anticipated return to the U.S. later this year.

The Premonition is a dynamic metallic assault that was once again recorded and mixed at the famed Studio Fredman in Sweden with renowned producer Fredrik Nordstrom (Arch Enemy, Dimmu Borgir). This album is a must for any fan of heavy, melodic music and it's an effort that is sure to help FIREWIND gain worldwide dominance.
