As Friday continues to chug along, there is nothing like a good old fashioned label signing announcement to share with the readership. With that, let’s take a look at the recent news from AFM Records who have just signed Gus G. and his band Firewind to a worldwide deal.
The Press Release:
Greek power metal icons Firewind, the band of former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G., have signed a worldwide record deal with German metal label AFM Records. The collaboration between the band and AFM already started with the latest FIREWIND album “Immortals”, which AFM released in the North American territory back then. Subsequently, GUS G. signed with AFM to also release his solo albums together, and now we are happy to announce that also FIREWIND’s future albums will be released worldwide by AFM.
Gus G. states: “After working together with AFM Records on my latest solo album “Fearless” and seeing the great results that were achieved, the passion and care they put into the project, it felt natural to extend our partnership and bring Firewind under the same roof. This is something I’m very excited about and I’m also happy to announce that we’re already working on the follow up of “Immortals”. We plan to enter the studio after our Summer tour with Queensryche wraps up in August. Stay tuned for further announcements!“

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having seen Firewind two or three times over the years I think that this is exciting news. Most of the readers of this website fully realize the level of guitar player that Gus G. is and I look forward to great things coming from him and the band under this labels direction and support. Longer tenured readers might remember that he was once under the Century Media Records label, and if you still need those albums I suggest hitting Amazon.com ASAP because they are getting harder and harder to find. Feel free to comment in on this news, especially if you are a fan as we always love to hear from you. Happy Weekend.
