Right, Firewind from Firewind. Often I question when a band with many albums under their belt decide to release an eponymous album years down the line. In this case, they do get a pass as they explained it by saying this feels like a re-launch of the band by bringing Herbie Langhans as a vocalist, as he does sound very much like their first singer Stephen Fredrick.

What is it with bands these days and releasing self-titled albums years into their careers? Anyway, so the new Firewind album is called Firewind. Does this album rekindle the fire that I've been missing in the last couple of Firewind releases? Ehm, no, not really to be honest.

At best deranged
The first track is very good. The rest of the album is quite predictable. You've heard this stuff many times before. For example the second track has very similar riffs to "Into The Fire".

I don't know, their first album is still their best, followed by The Premonition. But these last 3 records have been quite underwhelming imo. That being said, "Immortals" is definitely the best from the last three records.

Departure of Apollo was a huge loss, now with no Katsionis either there's not much interesting left.

Very good album from start to finish. Solid 8 however, I prefer Immortals still. Of course The Premonition is considerably more interesting and better.
