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.
