Twin Cities Metal has uploaded video footage of FIREWIND‘s entire October 19, 2011 concert at Station 4 in St. Paul, Minnesota as part of the “Frets Of Fury” tour with ARSIS, WHITE WIZZARD and NIGHTRAGE. A few of the clips can be seen below.
FIREWIND vocalist Apollo Papathanasio was unable to make the band’s recent European tour due to family issues. His replacement for the “Defiance Over Europe” shows was the acclaimed Swedish vocalist Mats Levén (KRUX, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, THERION, TREAT, ADAGIO, AT VANCE).
FIREWIND‘s latest album, “Days Of Defiance”, landed at position No. 53 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Days Of Defiance” was released in North America on October 26, 2010 (one day earlier internationally) via Century Media Records. The CD’s striking cover artwork was designed by the band’s longtime partner in all design matters, Gustavo Sazes.
