Greek Guitar God Gus G. is a relentless force in the metal scene. After parting ways with DREAM EVIL to focus on his band FIREWIND, Gus continues to lend his extraordinary guitar skills to NIGHTRAGE and MYSTIC PROPHECY. His chunky riffs and ferocious leads set him apart, and at just 24 years old, he is already a legend in the making.

"Forged by Fire," the latest from FIREWIND, builds on the success of 2002's "Between Heaven and Hell" and 2003's "Burning Earth." With a new deal with Century Media, this album combines the best elements of the previous releases with even stronger songwriting. New vocalist Chity Somapala from Sri Lanka brings a deeper, powerful voice to the band, while Bob Katsionis adds atmospheric touches on the keyboard.

This album is packed with memorable, hook-laden tracks. "Kill to Live" and "Beware the Beast" are prime examples of the band's metal prowess, driven by Gus's scorching guitar work and Stian Kristoffersen's powerful drumming. "Burn in Hell" merges metal intensity with an infectious chorus, while "The Forgotten Memory" and "Hateworld Hero" pay homage to '80s melodic metal with big, sing-along choruses reminiscent of the SCORPIONS. The power ballad "Land of Eternity" and the instrumental showcase "Feast of the Savages," featuring Marty Friedman, highlight the album's versatility.

For fans of melodic and classic metal, "Forged by Fire" is a standout release. It's time for FIREWIND to get the recognition they deserve. Don't miss out on this blazing masterpiece.
