Sky Guitar met ESP, and the master met the best student. The deep, warm and passionate voice met the absolute metal and the generation that refuses to retire gathered with the younger one to show the road that will never follow, since nowadays that road is a high speed interstate. All that happened in one of the most historical venues in Athens, “Kyttaro”, last Tuesday.

According to Gus G Firewind has already entered Noise Factory Studios in Belgium with Denis Ward on production to begin working on their next album, beginning from tracking the drums. "We're super excited about it, as this is our first recording in four years, plus this will be our first album with our new singer Henning Basse” said the guitarist. Gus added: "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 U.K./European club dates to early 2017. However, Firewind will play their summer dates as scheduled, including the show in Athens, Greece opening for the Scorpions.
