Firewind

Greek melodic Power metal masters Firewind, are releasing their eighth studio album, Immortals, on January 20th, 2017. In order to give you a next preview teaser for the upcoming album, a bombastic video clip, which was produced by the iCODE Team (Kamelot, Devin Townsend Project, Moonsorrow, etc.), as well as a digital single for the album track “Ode To Leonidas” are available now. Check out the video and read more info inside!

Firewind’s Gus G. checked in with the following comment about the track and its video:

“As many of you have found out by now, our new album Immortals is a concept and focusing on the battles of Thermopylae and Salamis. The song “Ode To Leonidas” is obviously about the legendary warrior King of Sparta and his heroic battle with his 300 brave men against the massive Persian army invaders.

For the production of the clip we traveled to Belgrade, Serbia and filmed with iCode team (same team that directed my solo video “The Quest” and so many other great bands) and we’re really amazed by the end result. It’s truly epic! We hope you will enjoy too. Heavy Metal fans – unite!”
