Video: Gus G’s Firewind on the edge (of a cliff in Greece)
Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist Gus G. unveils new vid clip for Firewind song Edge Of A Dream.
Track: Firewind – Edge Of A Dream (feat. Apocalyptica)
File under: Euro-metal ballad more overblown than Cyril Smith’s (RIP) stomach
Having just returned from some successful shows in Asia, Greek melodic metallers Firewind (featuring Ozzy’s current guitarist, Gus G.) have unveiled the newest video off their current album, Few Against Many.
The clip for Edge Of A Dream features Finnish cello superstars Apocalyptica. According to Firewind, the song “brings the classy feel of metal ballads back into a modern spotlight”. Watch it for yourself and see what you think.
Gus G. comments: “We shot the video earlier this year in Greece. You can see the beautiful landscapes we caught on film and I assure you that Petros [Christo, Firewind bassist] and Jo [Nunez, drums] didn’t hold it against us for not appearing in the clip! Actually the clip was directed by our band member Bob Katsionis [keys/guitar], who is also an acclaimed video director. He directed the clip for Head Up High back in 2008 among others. I think he has done an excellent job once again! Enjoy!”
