“Edge Of A Dream”, the new video from Greek melodic metallers FIREWIND, can be seen below. According to the band, the song — which features a guest appearances by Finnish cello superstars APOCALYPTICA — “brings the classy feel of metal ballads back into a modern spotlight.”
Comments FIREWIND guitarist Gus G.: “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 [keyboards, 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!”
