Back in August I posted a recommendation for the new album from Gus G called “Brand New Revolution” -

The Ozzy Osbourne / Firewind guitarist has just wrapped up a massive touring run, both supporting Kamelot and then successfully hosting guitar clinics all over Europe. We just received the following press release from Factory music about a new video and a new Firewind singer.

Gus G is launching a new video for the album track “What Lies Below” which features Elize Ryd of Amaranthe on vocals. The stunning video was once again shot by longtime visual design partner / director Patric Ullaeus (in Flames / Arch Enemy / Within Temptation etc) and can be seen here -

In addition to further solo shows throughout the end of this year, GUS G. has now also revealed  that his long-running melodic Metal band FIREWIND is finally returning to the spotlight with a new singer and selected live-activity in 2016.

Henning Basse (Metalium / Sons Of Seasons), who had already toured with Firewind on various continents in 2007 as well as most recently with Gus G.’s solo-band, has been announced as new permanent singer for Firewind and will therefore be appearing on the band’s upcoming performances at the 70000 Tons Of Metal Cruise as well as Graspop Metal Meeting next year.
