Played at Graspop Metal Meeting
2008 / 2009 / 2011 / 2016




Originally conceived in 1998 by guitar hero Gus G. in an attempt to earn a record deal, the Firewind project soon solidified into a permanent power metal outfit. With a rhythm section tighter than a duck’s arse, quick-fire keyboard-vs-guitar duels and new vocalist Kelly Sundown Carpenter’s husky wail, it’s clear that Firewind are much more than just Gus G. A hectic touring schedule has moulded Firewind into a tight unit and seven albums into their career they are one the leading melodic power bands around. Just check out the ‘Apotheosis - Live 2012’ album if you want to know what Firewind are all about. (Text: Niels Desmedt / Translation: Nick Devos)
