Editorial Reviews

Gus G. has spent the past decade quietly affirming his place as one of metal s reigning guitar virtuosos. He has recorded more than a dozen studio albums, performed around the world as a member of acts ranging from ARCH ENEMY and DREAM EVIL to his own band FIREWIND, and has been OZZY OSBOURNE's guitarist since being personally handpicked by the heavy metal legend in August 2009. Now with the release of his first-ever solo album, I Am the Fire on Century Media Records, the fleet-fingered Greek fret-shredder will embark on the next chapter of his history-shaping career.

People have been asking me for a solo record for years now, but I didn't want to do an album that sounded like something people have heard from me before, says Gus G. of his solo debut, an album that blends the metal histrionics that fans have come to know and love with a passion for classic hard rock and metal's vintage roots. Apart from a few instrumentals, this album isn't traditional heavy metal or power metal, it s got more of a classic rock vibe. It's stuff that wouldn't fit on a Firewind record, and I didn't want to push that band in this direction. I consider myself a songwriter as well as a guitar player, and this album allowed me to experiment and explore that different side of me.

In a career highlighted by a Grammy nomination for his performance on OZZY OSBOURNE s Scream album in 2010 and accolades including Guitar Player Magazine's Best Metal Guitarist, the Dimebag Darrell Shredder award at the Metal Hammer UK Golden Gods Awards, and Metal Hammer Greece Best Guitarist on four separate occasions, I Am the Fire serves as a whole new benchmark for Gus G.

Customer Reviews

Truly a shred fest!
David B. Simms
The Leven songs are great, the Englund song sounds like Evergrey, the Soto song sounds like Talisman ... It's all good.
Scott Bazzett
Amazing Solo Debut from the Firewind founder/guitarist!

In "I Am The Fire", Gus collaborates with some of the biggest names of the metal community and in the end he achieves to release a great melodic heavy rock effort. The record aws mixed by Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther), and gives Gus the opportunity to explore a different side of his creativity. David Ellefson (Megadeth), Mats Leven (Dogface, Swedish Erotica, Treat among others), Jeff Scott Soto (Talisman, W.E.T.) and Billy Sheehan of Mr. Big are some of the names that are givin' their helping hand to Gus and make this album a great purchase for every fan out there!

"My Will Be Done" (feat. Mats Leven) that kicks-off the album is simply a brilliant melodic heavy rock gem!! Leven's vocals are top notch and Gus G. is delivering some really cool riffs and solos that make this track a highlight!! "Blame It On Me" (Mats Leven) is groovier with more attitude with a monstrous chorus line and Leven's soul-full performances!! "I Am The Fire" (Feat. Devour The Day) featuring a 'modern' hard rock vibe and the final result is stunning!! The rhythm, the arrangements...everything here is just great. The guitars are a bit heavier and Gus G. is playing his heart out here!! Excellent stuff! "Summer Days" (Feat. Soto) is THE highlight here! It is everything that you expect from a Soto tune; melodic, 'punchy' with a positive feeling and this time again Soto has an excellent guitarist by his side!!! Of course, there not only the above mentioned tracks the highlights in "I Am The Fire", every single song here is offering something on its own, from beautiful melodies (Dreamkeeper) to some bad-ass guitar solos (Vengeance) to some passionate performances like the last one "End Of The Line" (feat. Mats Levén).

David T.Chastain knows his guitarists.He is the individual that introduced me to Gus G on the Leviaithan Label.Now he is the apparent successor to Zakk Wilde with Ozzy's band.But wait,the apparent success of the Black Sabbath reunion and tour,has placed him on the sidlines..NOT!! The perfect blend of 80's/90's Metal,with just a sprinkle of Angst to put everything together.Every track is SOLID throughout.Bless You Gus G.Gene Simmons(KISS) I am a fan of yours.But you are Wrong!!.Rock isn't Dead!!

Incredible shredder!! I can't imagine why a reviewer only gave "one star" ...all songs are well written...guitar is technically perfect!
I'm not sure about Gus' ego, with the title "I am the Fire", especially coming from the band "Firewind". But, look at Malmsteen or Blackmore...I try not to judge them either.
Great CD, no fillers in this one.

I haven't followed Ozzy for years, so I wasn't familiar with Gus, but I was intrigued by his line-up of guest stars, so I ordered it and man, was I glad I did. I wasn't worried about his playing skills, Ozzy always works with top-notch talent, but song writing is another thing all together. And knowing that it is a solo album, you sort of have to prepare yourself because you never know how far off the reservation into experimental territory an artist is going to go when they break out on their own. Gus, however, seems to have defied the odds by releasing an album of solid songs while utilizing to the fullest the individual talents of each of his guests. The majority of the songs are fronted by Mats Leven (a fantastic choice) and that would have been a great album, but like many solo albums, Gus collaborated with a group of other friends and artists. Usually when you have a rotating lineup of guest musicians, it is really difficult to create any sort of continuity or a cohesive style. But, it's really only a problem if the songs aren't good. (That is what ultimately doomed Jake E. Lee's latest project, Red Dragon Cartel) When the songs are good, nobody cares whether or not they fit together and these songs are good. The Leven songs are great, the Englund song sounds like Evergrey, the Soto song sounds like Talisman ... It's all good. There are a couple of impressive instrumentals and a couple of really good, but more modern sounding tracks with Blake Allison. Michael Starr (Ralph Saenz) took a break from the parody rock band Steel Panther to record a real song and some other girl I don't know did a great job too. Bottom line – great talent, great songs, just an all-around great effort.
