Greek melodic metallers FIREWIND are checking in at last again with good news regarding current activity as well as first details about their upcoming new studio album, which was completed throughout the last months and which will be ready to be launched worldwide via Century Media Records in the Fall of 2010.
As a first taster of great things to come, FIREWIND are currently featured on the May’s edition (Issue 205) Judas Priest tribute CD of UK’s Metal Hammer magazine, where FIREWIND present an addictive version of the classic “Breaking The Law” track and appear next to bands like Disturbed, Trigger The Bloodshed or Steelwing to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the “British Steel” album.

FIREWIND mastermind and current OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist Gus G. checks in as follows:
“I know it’s been a few silent months, but this time we decided to be pretty quiet about the recording process of our new album. Anyways, before we go into revealing more info, we recently did a very fun project which was to be a part of Metal Hammer UK’s Tribute CD to Judas Priest!
We actually recorded everything for that cover song in our home studios and then passed over the files to Fredrik Nordström / Studio Fredman in Sweden for the mix. This also marks our first recording with our new drummer, Michael Ehre and the end result is killer (in our humble opinion), as we got to cover one of Metal’s most classic songs: “Breaking The Law”!
As for our new album, it’s scheduled for a release sometime this Fall and the name of it is “Days Of Defiance“. We’ll soon check back and reveal more info, song names, etc.”
