Format: Audio CD
A big name in the metal scene thanks to guitarist Gus G, Greek Power Metallers Firewind get a lot of credit for this, their third record of ball-busting mayhem, but it's actually quite a boring affair when put up against their later, more accessible work like Allegiance and even Days Of Defiance. Thing is, part of what makes Firewind a good band is vocalist Apollo Papathanasio, who was yet to join them at this point. Here we have another itinerant frontman in the shape of Chity Somapala, whose voice I have never particularly liked (except on the Civilization One album). Forged By Fire is not among his best work, as his vocals are drowned out by Gus's huge riffs and spotlight solos, but then again the vocal lines are nothing special, and there are no catchy choruses until "Tyranny", which is the highlight here along with shredding instrumental "Feast Of The Savages", which features the talents of the legendary Marty Friedman.

The production is top notch and some of the riffs grab you from the get go (opener "Kill To Live" certainly has you by the short hairs), and in "The Forgotten Memory" and even "Escape From Tomorrow" some genuinely good melodies surface from the potage of multi-layered guitars, but things seem (and forgive me for saying this) just a touch too heavy for Power Metal. A better example of this can be found in what Mystic Prophecy did after Gus left. Anyway, if you're new to Firewind, pick up Allegiance and see how enjoyable this band can be. Power metallers might want to hear "Tyranny" if they are yet to, but otherwise there's nothing too exhilarating here.

Firewind's Forged by Fire is the first and so far only album I have by these guys. I must admit I picked it up blindly because of the cover and the name of the band while looking for Grave Digger (one of my favourites) and Saxon CD's. Firewind doesn't sound like any of those two, but I didn't expect that either.

There isn't anything groundbreaking about the style of rock/metal Firewind has chosen. Elements of Hard Rock of the 80's from bands such as Europe, Bon Jovi and Alice Cooper can be heard in conjunction with more modern heavy guitar riffs, twin guitar harmonies, fast drum beats and the occasional ballad wrapped in a clear and clean production. The singer reminds me a bit of Tony Martin (check out Black Sabbath - Headless Cross).

The intensity varies from the soft, emotional ballad to modern heavy metal with a pop-like quality. The overall standard of the songs are pretty average with sing-along choruses and no track popping it's head up particularly above the others.

If you like melodic hard rock that is not particularly heavy, with a decent singer, this might be your cup of tea. If you're looking for something rough and raw, such as Motörhead or Grave Digger, better avoid Firewind.

This in my opinion is firewind's greatest album, it also i believe is their heaviest and most thrashy album but it is laced with two very nice ballad type songs(i confide and land of eternity) other than those its the heaviest album with the face melting guitarist gus g doing what he does best but also on two songs with guest guitarist marty friedman one of which an amazing instrumental but overall i would recommend this to anybody who can appreciate metal.
