Greek melodic power metal masters Firewind, the group led by guitar-wizard and Ozzy Osbourne band member Gus G., will release eighth studio album Immortals on January 20, via the band’s longtime label partner Century Media Records in Europe & AFM Records in North America.

Immortals marks the first time Firewind used an outside co-producer, working with Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69), who not only engineered, mixed and mastered the album, but also co-wrote it together with Gus G.

Firewind already gave fans a first taste with lead single “Hands of Time,” and now comes an in-depth video interview with the band discussing the making of their first concept album, their current line-up and upcoming touring plans.

Watch the interview below, and also enjoy a few sample riffs off Immortals in a play-through clip that Gus G. recorded in cooperation with Toontrack’s EZmix 2 and the Metal Guitar Gods 4 EZmix Pack expansion.
