metallers FIREWIND are back
with revamped line-up featuring Gus G. (Guitars), Mark Cross (Drums),
Petros Christo (Bass), Bob Katsionis (Keyboards) and Apollo Papathanasio
(Vocals) and a great album called “Allegiance”.
only familiar with their debut album “Between Heaven and Hell” from
2002, which I find very good, but I have to check out “Burning Earth”
(2003) and “Forged By Fire” (2005), that’s for sure, because this
brand new release hits me just where it hurts.
get up tempo, mid tempo and very Melodic Metal with catchy riffs and
catchy choruses here on “Allegiance” that could satisfy every fan of
this genre. Sure, this is typical Power Metal with nothing new being
added, but the guys put a certain touch to it that makes it ROCK! Every
time I throw this album in my CD-player I just have to crank up the
volume and bang my head while singing along to the catchy tracks there
is to be found on this hammer album.
very talented singer Apollo Papathanasio fits the music perfect and
everything is packed with power in every note but they still keep the
memorable effect very high. I get the feeling that I have heard every
song before but I don’t give a F**k!!! This album just makes me feel
musicians know what they are doing, be sure about that and the
production is awesome. This album is among the best that I had rotating
in my CD-player lately, so if you are into Melodic Metal and Power Metal
do check it out when it hit the stores.
