Firewind - 'Fallen Angel' (Live at Token Lounge / Westland, MI)

Fallen Angel
Betrayal in your mind
Sinners prayer, do not trust your kind
The devil’s favorite child
With a purpose that doesn't die

Conquer, divide
The bringer of demise
A fallen angel from the sky
Deceive, deny
By dawn you bring us down
But you’re a king with no crown

It's temptation

A lesson never learned
If you gamble, you will crash and burn
You hide your inner lies
Kiss of Judas before sunrise

Conquer, divide
The bringer of demise
A fallen angel from the sky
Deceive, deny
By dawn you bring us down
But you’re a king with no crown

It's temptation

Angel, There's no light around you
Angel, The devil's child
Angel, You will perish alone

Conquer, divide
The bringer of demise
A fallen angel from the sky
Deceive, deny
By dawn you bring us down
But you’re a king with no crown

Fallen Angel
You'll perish alone

Μία... δεκάδα full length albums συμπλήρωσαν οι Firewind. "Stand United" ο τίτλος και κυκλοφόρησε την πρώτη ημέρα της άνοιξης από την AFM Records. Παρακολουθούμε το βίντεο με την "ζωντανή" απόδοση του τραγουδιού "Fallen Angel" από την προ ημερών (19 Απριλίου 2024) εμφάνιση της μπάντας στο Michigan (Westland) στο πλαίσιο της περιοδείας "Stand United in America".

Ο Gus G ξεκίνησε τους Firewind το μακρινό 1998. Παράλληλα "τρέχει" και την προσωπική του καριέρα (πέντε "ολοκληρωμένοι" στουντιακοί δίσκοι), ενώ τον έχουμε ακούσει και σε δίσκους του Ozzy Osbourne, των Dream Evil, των Mystic Prophecy, των Nightrage κλπ.

Δελτίο τύπου: «In such turbulent times it's important to stand closely together as humanity instead of fighting each other. That's exactly what the new Firewind album 'Stand United' is about!

With strong lyrics and finest power metal and hard rock vibes, we are expecting the strongest masterpiece of band history. Combined with MASTERPLAN the band around ex Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G. and vocalist Herbie Langhans (formerly Avantasia) will play a big European co-headliner tour in spring 2024!

The success of any metal production is based almost always on the sum of its individual parts, which have to fit together homogeneously to then ideally impress their listeners in their entirety. With Firewind, these details are easy to identify: On one hand, there’s the awe-inspiring guitar work of exceptional musician Gus G. and his breathtaking finger action as well as his authentic feel for catchy and at the same time powerful songs.

He is supported by German singer Herbie Langhans, who has made a name for himself as a member of bands/projects such as Avantasia, Sinbreed, etc. Gus G. and Langhans are a tight unit not only in the artistic sense, they are also colleagues who share ideas in musical as well as in organisational contexts.

Herbie has an incredibly multi-faceted voice that complements our songs perfectly. He also has a great deal of experience in this industry,” says the former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G, praising his frontman. “This combination makes it easier for me to develop the right songs for Firewind while keeping an eye on the business side of things.

The latest product of this fruitful collaboration bears the programmatic title ‘Stand United’ and will be available from AFM/Believe from 1 March 2024.

For their eagerly waiting fans, this new era began back in February 2023 with the arrival of Firewind’s first lead single ‘Destiny Calling’ that was released during a sold-out tour across Europe and UK with Finnish rising stars, Beast in Black.

Some of the album’s standout tracks are the anthemic ‘Salvation Day’, the massive and modern sounding ‘Fallen Angel’ and the more radio friendly track ‘Chains’. In line with that, a co-headlining tour with Power Metal legends Masterplan has been scheduled to commence at the end of February 2024.

Gus G. and Herbie Langhans have composed and recorded a total of nine new songs together with their producer Dennis Ward (Magnum, Unisonic) as well as a cover of the 80s Pop Rock classic ‘Talking in Your Sleep’, originally recorded by The Romantics but giving it a Metal twist in the style of Firewind.

The nine songs also bear testament to Firewind’s sheer enthusiasm and feature a number of interesting themes.

I wouldn’t exactly call ‘Stand United’ a classic concept album, but the album title indicates what we’re about thematically,” explains Gus G. who has also contributed with more lyric ideas on this one than any album before.

This world seems to be getting more and more out of balance, what with environmental disasters, the pandemic, the wars currently raging all over the globe. In such times, it’s more important than ever for mankind to stand close together instead of fighting each other. That’s what ‘Stand United’ is about!

This basic idea is also reflected in the cover artwork courtesy of Costin Chioreanu (Grave, Mayhem, among others).

Gus: “I always loved the artwork of our debut album, which was based on a real hand painting. With ‘Stand United’ being our tenth album, I wanted an equally authentic template and that’s how I came across Costin. The collage of faces on the cover represent war, greed, betrayal, but also love and unity, which are some of the album’s lyrical themes. I’m just as proud of the artwork as I am of the songs on our new album!
