Greek melodic Power metal masters Firewind, the group led by guitar-wizard and Ozzy Osbourne band member Gus G., are releasing their eighth studio album, Immortals, on January 20, 2017 via the band’s longtime label partner Century Media Records in Europe.
You can now watch the official video for the song “Ode To Leonidas”, taken from Immortals. The clip was recently shot with the iCode team (Kamelot, Devin Townsend Project, Moonsorrow) in Serbia.
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!”
