Melodic Metallers FIREWIND have successfully wrapped up the calendar year 2012 with 4 packed club-shows in their native Greece (Two nights in Thessaloniki and 2 nights in Athens), commencing the celebration of the band's 10th Anniversary of existence. Additionally, and right before the end of the year festivities, FIREWIND also entered studios in order to mix recordings from their "Few Against Many" live-campaign last year for an upcoming live-album, scheduled to be released before the summer of 2013. Look out for more details soon...

UK's Guitarist magazine caught up with FIREWIND's Gus G. on the band's latest UK headline dates for an 'On The Road' gear-video, which can be seen here:

FIREWIND's current album, "Few Against Many", was mixed by Jason Suecof & Eyal Levi at Audiohammer Studios (Trivium, All That Remains, Death Angel, etc.) and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (Mastodon, Hatebreed, Symphony X, etc.). The iconic album's artwork was once again created by FIREWIND's longtime partner in all design matters, Gustavo Sazes / www.abstrata.net (Arch Enemy, Angra, Dream Evil, etc.). While the album's standard version is available in the CD format as well as LP and also as Digital Download, "Few Against Many" is also released as limited edition Digipak CD with two bonus tracks. "Few Against Many" has recently climbed up the national sales charts in Greece to occupy the # 1 top spot for several weeks!
