Editorial Reviews

Firewind s reputation as one of Europe s premier Metal bands was further cemented after the release of 2010 s critically lauded Days Of Defiance , which saw the band tour the world with European support slots for both Judas Priest and Scorpions, along successful headline tours in Europe, Japan and North America.

For their seventh studio album, the Greek Metal legends, who feature Grammy nominated Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G. in their ranks, holed up in Valve Studios in Greece (with additional recording sessions in Sweetspot Studios in Sweden) late 2011 to begin work on their masterpiece, Few Against Many . Produced by Gus G., Few Against Many sees the band taking a more aggressive stance musically, whilst still retaining their melodic edge that has made them famous throughout the world. From the album s opening statement of intent, the driving Wall of Sound through to the hook-laden Glorious , onto the sweeping, epic ballad Edge of A Dream (featuring Finland s Apocalyptica) or the brooding Losing My Mind , Few Against Many is arguably Firewind s most cohesive and powerful release to date and one that sits proudly in the Firewind canon.

Mixed at Audiohammer Studios by Jason Suecof and Eyal Levi (Trivium, Devildriver, All That Remains, August Burns Red, Death Angel etc.), Few Against Many is packaged as a Special Edition digi-pak with two bonus tracks.

I'm not sure why some folks always review something with either 1 star or 5 stars. Things can't always be so black and white, and sometimes there is more involved than just "it rocks" or "it sucks".

Objectively, this is a solid metal album. The guitar work is honestly incredible. The riffs are heavy and catchy, the solos are blistering. The song structure is nice, and the solos are usually longer this time around, which is always a pleasant thing.

But somehow, the rest of it is just... lacking. Apollo's vocals have definitely diminished. The production is average at best, but in certain parts of the record it is simply terrible (as another reviewer pointed out, the backing vocals sound disgusting most of the time). More tracks on this album sound alike than in previous Firewind releases.

It's not a bad album by any means, and it definitely has some great songs on it. However, the replayability of it is probably not going to be as high as some of the other work by this band. These guys are very talented and I have no doubt that they will be back in no time with another great record.

Well, Firewind is back with their seventh studio album and it's a good one. I'm not huge fan of them because their sound has a neutral to happy tone to most of their songs. Not that this a bad thing but it's just not my ideal style. I like my music dark and moody. That being said I have been a fan ever since Apollo Papathanasio came in 2006. His voice is unique and he has his own style of singing. This album is the typical Firewind from track 1 to 4 for the most part. Then from track 5 to 11 they do something a little different. They slightly deviate from the typical (Apollo) Firewind chorus sound to explore different ideas. I personally enjoyed that. I like bands who like to switch it up a bit but not stray too far from their base. If you are fan of Firewind I don't see why you would not like this album. I feel this is their best to date. This is a very solid album that their fan base can really get behind. This album says Firewind in every aspect. I enjoyed EVERY track. Get the Digipak. Trust me. The song "Battleborn" is killer so I would say that you DO want that song. Pay attention to Gus G. The solos will WOW you. Gus G. is a true beast on the guitar. For people who have never heard of Firewind before they are a traditional Power Metal band with comtemporary aspects in it. They have always blended it together very well. Favorite tracks: "Few Against Many", "Another Dimension", "Edge Of A Dream", "No Heroes, No Sinners" and "Battleborn."

I'm a fan of Gus G for quite some time and this Cd is good it still show cases his guitar skills like always but it also gives Apollo some singing room to also show case his skills. As he sings more here on their releases he gets better and better. I'm a fan of his singing and it took me awhile to really like the way he sounds and its great. Get this one for sure.

This is definitely one of my favorite releases by Firewind! I have been a fan since the 'Allegiance' days and though a couple albums were kind of so, so..'Few Against Many' easily stands out among the best! Just totally in-your-face but still has that melodic edge the band is known for! I can't wait to get the live CD 'Apotheosis!'

Current Ozzy Osbourne axe-slinger Gus G. and company are back with a new Firewind album. Few Against Many is the Greek power metal band's seventh studio album, and as seems to be the trend, they're breaking in yet another drummer (this time Nightrage's Johan Nunez). After the solid - but not spectacular - Days of Defiance, I was hoping Few Against Many would be a return to Premonition-style greatness, but that's not quite the case here.

Don't get me wrong. Few Against Many is not some radical departure. It sounds like a Firewind album. Actually, it sounds exactly like Days of Defiance, which is part of the problem. Natural growth and progression seem to have been replaced by a formula (like an Axel Rudi Pell disc), and as a result the album is just a bit less impressive. Even Apollo Papathanasio's vocals, which to me have always been one of Firewind's main selling points, seem off here. It sounds like there's a filter or something else slightly distorting his voice. Of course, Gus G's guitar work is still awesome, and he delivers some blistering solos throughout the album. It's his overall songwriting that could use some help. There are a couple of really good songs on Few Against Many ("Wall of Sound," "No Heroes, No Sinners" and the title track), but there's plenty of filler too.

Firewind seems to be caught in a holding pattern here. Few Against Many is a perfectly solid power metal album, and hey, an average Firewind album is still going to be better than most other power metal offerings. Still, it doesn't measure up to past Firewind efforts, and that is a bit of a disappointment.
