Firewind Announces Live Album


Firewind FIREWIND, featuring Gus G. (OZZY OSBOURNE), have recently returned from an extensive North American tour together with TURISAS and STOLEN BABIES, on which Kelly Sundown Carpenter (ADAGIO, BEYOND TWILIGHT) debuted as session frontman.

Now, Firewind have revealed that they will be releasing a new live album on June 24th via Century Media Records in Europe, to celebrate the 10th band anniversary in style. Entitled Apotheosis – Live 2012, the album will contain 17 songs recorded at special anniversary shows in Greece as well as all over Europe during the band’s Few Against Many tour in 2012 with a playing time of 69 minutes featuring a great overview of the band’s career so far, which spans over 7 studio albums so far. This live-album also marks the final release with longterm singer Apollo Papathanasio, who decided to step down from his duties as singer by the end of last year.

Gus G. checked in to comment on the release: "Apotheosis = the glorification of a subject to a divine level. That is the word that came to my mind, while thinking of how I could best describe the feeling and the vibe of those four anniversary shows we played in our homeland Greece and our last European headline tour in 2012! So that had to be our live album's title. You can feel the energy on these recordings, you can hear the screams of the most hardcore fans and the Firewind chants... it's all there. No doubt about it, it's the sheer love from our fans and supporters that has kept us alive and strong for 10 years and we wanted to celebrate all that with this album. We recorded all those shows, chose the best performances and now we can't wait to release this one! See you out there this spring and summer on European festival stages!"
