Gus G. (Firewind, Ex-Ozzy Osbourne) Shares Playthrough Video For “Thrill Of The Chase”

Gus G. (Firewind, ex-Ozzy Osbourne) has shared a playthrough video for “Thrill Of The Chase” off his latest album “Fearless.” He had the following to say about the track:

“‘Thrill Of The Chase’ is the second instrumental on this record. This is a song that showcases, obviously, a lot of my guitar playing. And it’s also a tribute to a lot of my guitar heroes from the ’80s and ’70s. It’s got a heavy, I would say, Michael Schenker and Scorpions influence, and, obviously, a lot of the ’80s shredders that I grew up listening to — the Mike Varney guitar scene. So I just wanted to create a track that takes you back to that time.”

Gus said the following about his bandmates:

“Dennis and I have collaborated very closely for a number years, he produced the current Firewind album Immortals, among other things. We’re on the same musical wavelength and simply continued our cooperation after the Firewind production. I sent him demos of and ideas for my new songs and once we had enough material and started to think about vocalists, Dennis suggested recording the album as a trio.

A lot of people don’t realize that Dennis is not only a brilliant songwriter, bassist and producer, but also an excellent singer. I immediately liked his suggestion because this would be very different from everything else I’ve done before.”

“Will was at the very top of my wish list. Fate smiled on me because we played at the Frankfurt music fair 2017 during my tour with Steve Stevens, and Will stayed at the same hotel. So I approached him, we talked for a while and he agreed. Last August he came to the studio and recorded the drum parts for the whole album within two and a half days. A real pro with a great groove and an awesome punch.”
