Format: Audio CD
Firewind have been rocking for almost two decades now, but in recent years are probably better known for the fact that founding member Gus G has been Ozzy's guitarist.

Immortals (inspired partially by the Battle of Thermopylae) is a very polished power metal album and is likely to appeal to any fan of the genre - there's a lot to like here. Gus G's guitar work is consistently excellent throughout and he is capably supported by a band of consummate musicians. Some of the tracks are excellent examples of power metal and will have you throwing horns, reaching for your sword and holding back the hairy-chested-manly-man tears. 'Hands of Time' is brilliant and will see regular rotation on my playlists, but 'Lady of 1000 Sorrows' shows the band are able to tackle more sensitive subjects and is a fantastic (if not overly mushy) ballad. 'Live and Die By the Sword' also comes highly recommended - there's more than a hint of mid-80s Maiden to it and that is never a bad thing.

Ultimately I would say that 'Immortals' was an accomplished and enthusiastic album - but it lacks passion. It puts me in mind of Hammerfall and (I'll probably be booted out of the Power Metal fraternity for saying this, but....) there's little in the way of emotional dynamism. The emotional tone of the album seems to be set at: 'Rock on!' As a result, your mileage may vary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Firewind is back! 25 Jan. 2017
By Panagiotis Kalantzis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
Firewind is back! Guitar god Gus G. and company have finally released their new long awaited album, Immortals, and it doesn't disappoint. It's a must own for all power metal fans. Each track on Immortals, even the ballad "Lady of 1000 Sorrows" rocks! Every song on the album truly showcases the respective talents of each band member and as a whole, they've produced a metal masterpiece. Been listening to it every day since it's release, and it rocks in every aspect. Begging with the driving rhythms of bassist Petros Christo and power drummer Johan Nunez to the soaring vocals of Henning Basse then to the melodic interludes of keyboardist Bob Katsionis and then finally the perfection of guitar shredder Gus G. you really need to give this album a listen to. I recommend it be listened to at higher volumes to really appreciate the authentic power metal experience. Buy it and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Firewind is back with a vengeance! 3 Mar. 2017
By Richard Clemmons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Brilliant new album from Firewind. Gus G is on fire for this album, the entire group is locked in from the opening notes of "Hands of Time"! Bob Katsionis is masterful with his keyboard playing, just the right balance for Gus G's runs that echo Michael Schenker's amazing style of runs that just makes these songs soar like the masterpiece, "Ode to Leonidas". The one thing about this album that really grabbed me from Track 1, are the vocals of Henning Basse! The man has an amazing voice, & it will captivate you with it's depth & range, what a great addition! Just listen to the aforementioned "Ode to Leonidas", "Back on the Throne", "Live & Die by the Sword", & one of my favorites, "Lady of 1000 Sorrows". This album is also the first concept album from Firewind & to my mind, an absolute success! Check out this new album from Firewind, featuring the talented Gus G, & his new Jackson guitars!
5.0 out of 5 stars GUS G IS ON FIRE!!! 25 Mar. 2017
By Luke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While feeling like it's blending the film 300 and guitar heroes like Yngiwe J. Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, Randy Rhoads, Michael Schenker and threads of Dream Theater's virtuoso keyboard/guitar attack, this album is absolutely nuclear-assault-through-your-speakers fantastic, and deserves to be played as loud as possible. My favorite Firewind album by far, Gus G. rises above the pack as with this power metal masterpiece, and the new lineup sounds equally ready to the task of conquering the world right along side him.
4.0 out of 5 stars I want to love it all but only 2 tracks stand out to me... 21 Feb. 2017
By Mr. Hyde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have about a 45 minute commute 4 days a week and have been listening to this album to and from, on repeat, pretty much since it came out, in order to form a decent opinion about it. The conclusions I've come to are that there are 2 songs in particular that I always look forward to - "Back on the Throne," and "Live and Die by the Sword" - but sadly, the rest don't interest me all the much.

Having listened to them all multiple times, I think I can say that I've certainly given them all a chance to "grow on me," as many artists songs tend to do after multiple listens, even if we initially don't like them, but, this hasn't happened with the rest of the songs for me. Maybe I need to listen to them all several more times but, historically, it's not been necessary to go this long to form what will be THE lasting opinion.

So, how does the sound of this album compare to past albums' sounds? If you're a fan from the early days (Between Heaven and Hell, Burning Earth) like I am, you'll probably be a bit disappointed. Those early albums featured a ton of fast, creative melodic sounds that blended superbly well together. These days, particularly with this album and the last, the songs seem to merge together, all sounding very similar, less melodic, and just more "shreddy" for the sake of needing a fast solo sweeping up and down the neck. It's just not creative, or interesting.

Now, this is not a bash on Gus G, this guy is incredible at what he does. Sadly I've only had the honor of seeing him live (with Firewind) once, many years ago with Apollo, but he was absolutely flawless. Very rarely do you get to witness a guitar player whip out the sounds and pinch harmonics with the speed and precision that he does, all while headbanging. If you love guitar, and metal, it's impressive to witness. Gus G truly is a god, with the guitar simply being an extension of his own body - he is, seemingly, in complete control at all times. I have tremendous respect for him and he is, in my opinion, easily one of the top 10 guitarists in the world.

With that said, this is simply not his best work. The sound here is more about fast palm-muted rhythms and shredding for the sake of shredding than it is about actually having a sound that blends well from one part to the next. The vocals from Henning Basse are okay but, I'm not a fan. Firewind has done well with their vocalist replacements over the years, in terms of getting someone who sounds nearly exactly like the previous vocalist(s), however, Henning just can't project his voice very well. It's like his voice projects, at all times, at the level where you're nearly out of breath and struggling to force out that last bit of air from your lungs to finish a note. It sounds like he's constantly singing with only that last bit of air...

Overall, I love Firewind, but I only truly love 2 songs on this album, which is pretty disappointing. I look forward to future releases though (and maybe even a U.S. tour? It's been too long, please!!) and will continue to support one of my favorite guitarists.
5.0 out of 5 stars Firewind at their best 16 Mar. 2017

Absolutely fantastic effort by Firewind. I've been a fan since their first CD and this one did not disappoint, straight ahead Firewind. Best thing I can say is if you like them then you'll like this, highly recommended.
