Firewind - Between Heaven And Hell

Recommended Posts

Just pulled this disc out today and forgot how truly awesome it is. I kinda stopped following Gus G. after all those bands he left at once. I loved the first couple Dream Evil discs, and I also liked Nightrage's disc with Gus. But there is something awesome with Stephen Fredrick's vocals and the band's backbone. This is one killer metal disc.

 

Anybody else love this disc??

Awesome CD. I also loved the first few Dream Evil CDs. Never heard the Nightrage CD, what's it like?

 

Nightrage was more on the lines of melodic death metal. Still pretty killer though. I'll upload it and send you the link so you can check it out.

Dude i still remember the day i got it in the mail, and stuck it in my home stereo, I hadn't heard even a sample of it, just ordered it because of the band members, the second that 1st track kicked in, i felt the sub woofer rattling in my heart and head, and I got the cold chills shooting through me a million miles an hour, then the double bass kicked in and i was pretty much kicking shit in my front room over jumping across the room to it, yep id say I remember this disc, I also remember nothing else they did even being remotely close to it, about the same feeling I got when i 1st popped in D.S.G. Ashes, unbelievable,

Yeah man.... I got it because of Dream Evil. I heard Gus had another band in the same vein, only not as cheesy as Dream Evil and I had to check it out. I also agree I don't think any of their releases since have been of the quality of the debut. I am going to listen to all of them again just to see what would rank as second best. I am thinking "Burning Earth" with Fredrick on vocals. What have they had now, 3 singers?

No I think 4, 3 have been on albums, their original singer was some dude named Brandon I think, then Fredrick, then Chitral, and finally the dude from Time Requiem, who I think fucking blows, but you know that's just my opinion, Fredrick by far the best one.

    • That’s not bad at all. I’d love to get an AOR Freaky reaction to this, as it kinda makes me think of the Nu Breed style that started taking off around ‘03 that we know he loved so much! 😂
    • If you liked that one, I think you'll find this one to be pretty cool. It's not satirical though:  
    • Looking at the song titles, this is 100% what I expected. Not into it at all - quite dislike it, to be honest. And the song titles do nothing to fill me with confidence that any of the other songs will be any better.  Anyway, this is a real surprise. I thought he was far removed from the music scene and his voice was allegedly not up to ever returning to Autograph (as I assume, music, generally speaking?) 
    • agree with the comments on that first track, was expecting a little more from Steve, maybe something similar to the songs on Buzz, still looking forward to hearing the rest of the album though
    • Germany based label label Pride & Joy Music will continue the Pride & Joy Music Classixx series on June 14th, 2024 with the release of the following 2 classic albums: The LA Cowboys - Endless Summer (Westcoast) Captain Black Beard - Sonic Forces +2 (Melodic Rock) As usual, these titles are only available via shop.prideandjoy.de and direct wholesale via Pride & Joy Music. Both are ltd. editions with 300 copies only each. Due to a high amount of pre-orders, the classic The LA Cowboys album already is almost sold out.   https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16355-the-la-cowboys-endless-summer-cd.html https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16354-captain-black-beard-sonic-forces-cd.html The bonus tracks on the Captain Blackbeard reissue are: 11. All The Pain (Bonus Track – 2022 re-recording) 12. Headlights (Instrumental Synthwave Remix)
    • But in all honesty, I hope music fans can eventually use AI to digitally remaster demo recordings with shitty audio quality
    • Ah, fukkit, what do I care? You're my people so I'll post a link to one I/we (AI and me, lol) just did now.  You're not telling me anything I don't know about how cringe the lyrics are, but in my defence this was written on 25th of July, 2001. Yes, even my youthful self shouldn't have been such a maggot, but I don't care too much. A slice of history, I guess you could say. Anyway, you can see in this what I mean about awkward phrasing and melodies not how the writer intended, but you also may get a sense that the result can still be pretty fun and appealing, perhaps, if you penned your own lyrics.  Another thing I'll say is that the almost violin/cello/accordion-sounding guitar riff seems to keep popping up in 90% of the songs I do with this or similar prompts, and I don't understand how/why that is associated with melodic rock. But it's there, constantly. Guess AI only has so many ideas so far?  I don't like that it has the prompts (which you can see have been somewhat ignored, I guess?) and the lyrics on display, but here's an example of what I'm droning on about, for reference; https://suno.com/song/0b797863-cd90-40b6-94da-5abe78ff98ca  
    • I just shared the following song in AOR Song of the Day, but I figure I'll also create a separate thread since I can't find any information about this band—not even a Discogs page! If anybody has any info to share about them, that'll be awesome!
