I’m one of those dudes who just doesn’t understand Firewind’s appeal, and frankly, I never will.
But that’s never stopped me from writing about the Greek metal act before.
Burning Earth, Firewind’s second album, has just been reissued on Leviathan Records in the U.S. and Hydrant Records in Japan.
The reissue was remastered and includes three previously unavailable bonus tracks, for you hardcore Firewind fans out there.
When I hold a lighter between my legs and rip ass, I like to call that Firewind.
Commented Gus G., Ozzy Osbourne’s new Zakk Wylde and a member of Firewind: “Burning Earth was a very important step for Firewind as we needed to create an even stronger follow-up to our debut album, Between Heaven And Hell.
“I wanted to create a killer record and finally get a chance to play some shows with Firewind and not just be a studio project. I remember it was a very inspiring period for me and the songs came to me so naturally.
“It seems that these days ‘The Fire & The Fury’ is a modern-day classic instrumental track, but I almost put it together accidentally. I had this cool riff but wasn’t sure I would make it a vocal track. I started jamming and the main theme just came out. It’s no wonder this song is still a highlight of our live setlist and fans go crazy when we play it.
“I definitely felt we were doing something different and more fresh within our genre and this is why this album has stood the test of time and I still think to this day that Burning Earth is one of Firewind’s finest musical moments.”
Gee…I love me, who do you love?
