FIREWIND/OZZY OSBOURNE Guitarist GUS G.: New Song 'The Quest' Available For Streaming
July 17, 2015
"The Quest", a brand new song from Greek guitar virtuoso Gus G., well known in rock and metal circles for his work as Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist and as leader of his own band FIREWIND, can be streamed below (courtesy of GuitarWorld.com). The track is taken from Gus G.'s second solo album, "Brand New Revolution", which will be released in Europe on July 24 via Century Media. The CD will be made available through Century Media in Australia and South America, Dismanic/eOne in North America and King Records in Japan. The cover artwork was once again created by Gustavo Sazes, who previously worked with Gus on the guitarist's debut album, "I Am The Fire", and also took care of artwork duties by such bands as ARCH ENEMY, KAMELOT and FIREWIND.
"'The Quest' is the only instrumental of the album and it's a heavy, high-energy, technical track," Gus says. "You hear lots of sides of my playing, not only the technical leads and heavy riffing, but melodies and even acoustic. Lots of stuff jam-packed into this song, but somehow it all comes together nicely. The rest of the album once again features collaborations with some awesome singers/songwriters such as the legendary Jeff Scott Soto, Mats Levén, Jacob Bunton and the awesome Elize Ryd of AMARANTHE.
"I feel the album as a whole has many influences, from classic hard rock/metal to more modern and current sounds."
"Brand New Revolution" features guest vocal appearances by Jeff Scott Soto (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JOURNEY, TALISMAN),Elize Ryd (AMARANTHE),Jacob Bunton (ADLER, LYNAM) and Mats Levén (CANDLEMASS, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, TREAT).
