5.0 out of 5 stars Really impressed
Never heard these guys before but really like this album. Pleased I gave it a go and will be looking at others in their back catalogue based on what I have heard on this one

2.0 out of 5 stars Huge Dissapointment
I was looking forward to this album after the slightly underpar 'Days of Defiance' but not at all impressed with "Few Against Many".
It's a little darker in places but that doesn't work at all and the more trade mark Firewind tracks sound like a rehash of previous songs and the ballads are quite appalling.
I'd say Firewind have had a good run but have simply run...

I'd say Firewind have had a good run but have simply run out of ideas like most of the melodic power metal bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of those rare albums where there's not a bad song to be found., 4 April 2014

This review is from: Few Against Many (MP3 Download)
Upon first listen it was a decent enough affair. But it's one of those albums that just get better and better with each listen. I must have listened to this about seven times over the past week alone. One song "Destiny" the guitars at the start sound very similar to Dark Moor's song "The Road Again" not a complete copy. But there is a similarity to be had. Losing My Mind has to be my #1 track on the album. But this was an extremely hard choice to make since I love the whole album.

Some might call them Power Metal. I think this album has more in common with Heavy Metal. Judas Priest, Saxon (the modern day version), Dark Moor and a few other bands of similar style. You really can't go wrong with this album. For some it might take a couple of listens. But I don't see it truly disappointing anyone. Unless they are the sort of person that is only open to what came before. Again no judgement there. It's all personal preference at the end of the day.

5/5

2.0 out of 5 stars LOST THE PLOT, 9 July 2013

This review is from: Few Against Many (Audio CD)
I only discovered this group after reading a review about Hammerfall and what a revelation when I listened to snippet's from the Amazon store. Last year ,I bought my first album ,the special edition version of the Premonition and have since acquired all but one of their back catalogue .Nothing comes near Premonition for catchy tunes and power but they all have something to offer until this latest studio effort. The whole album suffers from a "lifeless" production and forgettable tunes.Too much focus on proving what a great guitar player Gus G is, has left the production lacking in power and substance.Let us hope this a temporary blip but the loss of Apollo from the line up may take some filling!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome!!!, 21 May 2012

This review is from: Few Against Many (Audio CD)
Firewind are back with another release, this time called Few Against Many. And what a good album it is from start to finish. The opening track wall of sound is awesome and has a groove pantera type feel to it whilst sticking to its original sound. Its darker and heavier compared to previous releases but thats ok. Who would want a band to produce albums all sounding the same. Each album they have made is very different and i feel they are improving all the time. They have a unique sound in there music and i can honestly say they are one of the best melodic bands out there and very good live too!! Best songs 1.Wall of sound 2.Few Against Many 3.Another Dimension the whole album. Buy it!!! You wont be dissapointed!
