Firewind Premiere “Ode To Leonidas” Music Video

Firewind have premiered a new video for their new song “Ode To Leonidas.” This song is from their new album “Immortals,” which will be released on January 20.

Gus G. commented:

“As many of you have found out by now, our new album ‘Immortals’ is a concept and focusing on the battles of Thermopylae and Salamis. The song ‘Ode To Leonidas’ is obviously about the legendary warrior King of Sparta and his heroic battle with his 300 brave men against the massive Persian army invaders.

“For the production of the clip, we traveled to Belgrade, Serbia and filmed with iCode team (same team that directed my solo video ‘The Quest’ and so many other great bands) and we’re really amazed by the end result. It’s truly epic! We hope you will enjoy too. Heavy metal fans — unite!”

Gus G. commented:

“Today we’re very happy to reveal the cover artwork for our eighth 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 second Persian invasion of Greece in 480 B.C.

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.”

The band said the following:

“We feel it’s time to give you an update on what’s happening in our world. For the past few months we’ve been busy composing our 8th album and this week we finally entered the studio to start recording! We’re super excited about it, as this is our first recording in 4 years, plus this will be our first album with our new singer Henning Basse (who should not be a stranger to our fans by now).

We’ve entered Noise Factory Studio in Belgium this week with Producer/Engineer Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69, Krokus, etc.) to track drums and it’s sounding huge already!

As the schedule is pretty hectic for the next few months with recordings, finalizing everything, etc. we feel we need time to have a proper setup for the album release and give it the attention it deserves.

Therefore, we have decided to postpone our UK/European club dates to early 2017. All dates are there and we’ve even added an extra UK show in Southampton and one more in Strasbourg, France! Moreover, we will have Sweden’s Manimal as special guests, as well as Greece’s Scar Of The Sun opening the shows. Tickets already purchased are still valid for the re-scheduled dates. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but we promise it’ll be worth the wait!”
