Firewind new live album Apotheosis – Live 2012 out now!

The Greek power metal gods Firewind, who house pioneering guitar extraordinaire Gus G when he’s not off with the legendary Ozzy Osbourne and playing his songs, have released a new live album to celebrate their 10th anniversary. The live album, entitled Apotheosis – Live 2012 features iconic tracks from throughout Firewind’s extensive musical career and was recorded during their Few Against Many tour at shows in Greece and other countries in Europe. Clocking in at 69 minutes and featuring anthems from throughout their career, it breathes new fire into the band and shows a different side to them than their previous live release from 2008: Live Premonition.

Apotheosis – Live 2012 also features the final performances of Firewind’s vocalist Apollo Papathanasi, who has since left the band. His replacement, Kelly Sundown Carpenter (Adagio, Beyond Twilight) will be taking to the stage as a session front man for all of the band’s upcoming 2013 shows.

Firewind have again rekindled their long standing relationship with artist Gustavo Sazes who’s art has graced releases from the likes of Arch Enemy and Dream Evil, for the cover artwork of Apotheosis – Live 2012. It incorporates live photography of the band by Hans-W. Rock and is awesome to behold.
