Editorial Reviews

2010 release from the Greek Metal band led by the young guitar sensation Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne). Days of Defiance is easily their defining moment. The much anticipated disc is a truly ambitious and dynamic opus featuring some of the most brilliant guitar playing the genre has seen in many years. Days of Defiance will undeniably satisfy the tastes of every metalhead out there, combining the best elements of modern melodic Hard Rock and powerful epic Metal into a versatile, dynamic and highly entertaining release.

I bought this album with shaking hands; I so much wanted to believe that `Firewind' would come up with another amazing album equal to `Allegiance' and `The premonition'. I have total faith in the undisputed abilities of Gus G, and the band yet distractions such as side projects/bands could have easily affected the result.

Allow me to say, I feel totally rewarded by `Firewind' and their brand new album as it turned out to be what I hoped for and so much more. For that matter, `Days of Defiance' will do justice to any long-term fan of the band- It is the king of album that gives one more than expected.

Before moving into technical details, one can not escape but advice that you choose the limited edition including three bonus tracks, raising the play list to 16 tracks (the largest `Firewind' album to date) coming in a book-like cover with bonus sticker and guitar pick.

As the artwork very much hints, `Firewind' has gone back to the sound of their first two albums. Such shift implies a more guitar oriented album and far more aggressive vocal performance and lyrical concept that come with it. So you can rightfully expect more guitar melodies, faster and more complex arpeggios as well as furious heavy metal riffs. To be fair, one has to acknowledge that the presence of keyboards has been substantially decreased, while the drums are not as largely produced as on the previous two albums (although that could very much be attributed to the new entry of Michael Ehre on drums).

If, you haven't listend to this band, you should, from the opening track Firewind takes no prisoners! If, you like the new style of guttural vocals over roaring guitars, this one isn't for you! If, your preference is a real vocalist, great bass & drum interplay overlayed with a guitarist with skill/vision then this is what you're looking for. The tracks, "World of Fires", "Chariot", "Heading for the Dawn", & "Cold as Ice" are my personal favorites. "SKG" is an amazing instrumental track worth a serious listen as well. Gus G is the unquestioned leader of Firewind & one listen to this CD will prove to you why Ozzy grabbed this guy! If, you want a great cd, love a great guitarist with an awesome vocalist,& great rythmn section (great double bass drums!!!), you need this cd in your collection!

I think "Days of Defiance" is a great album overall, of the same high quality that the previous two albums were ("Allegiance", 2006 and "The Premonition", 2008). Once again, the band shows lots of talent, and what's even more important, the ability to work together as a band, without weak links. Not to take a single step down from a previous great record is a very tough task for any band, but Firewind has succeeded completely in doing so.

The heavy/power/melodic metal that we are presented with here is clean, polished, well-produced, and at the same time raunchy and with an attitude. Heavy riffs, nice solos, powerful melodic vocals, non-distorted production, good song writing both musically and lyrically...these elements are present all throughout this album. From the heavy intro song, to the very addictive "Embrace the Sun", to the emotional "Broken", to the insane instrumental "SKG", to the final breathtaking solo on "When All is Said and Done", this album does not give much room to mediocrity at all. Let me be the one to say that to find music of this great quality is pretty darn rare these days.

A very strong 4.5 stars out of 5. This is a great band, I can't wait to see them Live if/when they decide to tour in the U.S. If you are new to this band, I also *highly* recommend their previous record, "The Premonition".

Great musicianship, ripping guitars, bass, and drums with vocals you can actually understand! The more I listen to this the more I like it. Ark of Lies, Chariot, Set the World on Fire, and the instrumental SKG all kick!

Greek power metal band Firewind is back with Days of Defiance, their sixth studio album and the first since founding guitarist Gus G. was tapped as Ozzy Osbourne's new axe-slinger. I was afraid that Gus's new role with Ozzy might put an end to Firewind, which in recent years had become one of power metal's brightest stars, but given his prolific history (see also Nightrage, Dream Evil and Mystic Prophecy) I shouldn't have worried.

Gus G. has kept the Firewind lineup responsible for the amazing Premonition album mostly intact (Michael Ehre is now on drums), so my expectations were high for this album. Days of Defiance continues with the same basic sound heard on Premonition and Allegiance, though I have to say it doesn't immediately resonate the way those albums did. The key elements are there - Gus's trademark guitar pyrotechnics, the crushing rhythms, Apollo Papathanasio's increasingly powerful vocals (seriously, this guy gets better each year) and those amazing melodies - but it doesn't quite have the same magic that made the previous Firewind albums instant favorites. "World on Fire" and "Cold as Ice" are amazing singles, and the instrumental "SKG" is astonishing (and I'm not easily impressed by instrumentals), so there are obviously some great songs on Days of Defiance. Taken as a whole though, it just doesn't seem like an essential album. It may just be that the band set the bar too high with Premonition. I will say this though; I've had the album for a couple of weeks now and I like it a little more each time I hear it.
