Firewind are currently working on a new studio album to be released early 2010 and here is the update from Gus regarding the upcoming recording session:
?So while we?ve been doing all these select shows this year, we concentrated mainly on writing new material. I can tell you right now that we have 12 great vocal songs and 2 instrumentals. While it?s too early to know what will end up on the album, all of us in the band are very pleased with the demos and pre-production we did and we are positive that we?re creating the best album of our career so far!
"We?re planning to enter the studio this Autumn and looking into possibilities of who will be mixing our new album. As for the material itself, I?d say it?s what our fans would expect from us. Powerful rock / metal anthems with cool riffs and memorable vocal lines from Apollo, but also some faster & more technical stuff is on there. We also wrote a very challenging instrumental song. It will have a fusion of styles and advanced playing from all of us. Needless to say the guitar will shred like never before! ;-)
"Can?t wait? Neither can we!!!?
