Firewind: Debut "Wall Of Sound" video-clip online; Confirmed for Bang Your Head!!! Festival
Greek melodic Metallers FIREWIND, lead by guitar wizard and Ozzy Osbourne band-member Gus G., are soon to unleash their newest studio album "Few Against Many" on May 21st, 2012 via Century Media Records in Europe.
In anticipation of the nearing street date, FIREWIND are debuting their video-clip for the new album's opening track "Wall Of Sound" via the Century Media Records YouTube channel today. Check out the dynamic clip, which was shot during the band's latest shows in their homeland Greece by Colin Marshall, by visiting the following location: www.youtube.com/watch?v=aihNvw4b8bE
FIREWIND's Gus G. has checked in to comment on the clip as follows: "We wanted to do a different video this time, instead of the usual indoor studio shootings. So we figured we'd show the band in its comfort zone - on stage. The clip was shot on our most recent shows in Greece this past January and you can witness the mayhem that goes down when we play in our home country! Enjoy!"
FIREWIND's newest album, "Few Against many", was mixed by Jason Suecof & Eyal Levi at Audiohammer Studios (Trivium, All That Remains, Death Angel, etc.) and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (Mastodon, Hatebreed, Symphony X, etc.). The iconic album's artwork was once again created by FIREWIND's longtime partner in all design matters, Gustavo Sazes / www.abstrata.net (Arch Enemy, Angra, Dream Evil, etc.), who has been working with the band since the release of the album "The Premonition".
The "Few Against Many" album release is preceded by a digital release of the album's 1st single, "Wall Of Sound", which is out NOW. As one of several digital retail platform options, you can get it via Itunes by clicking here.
