Firewind guitarist Gus G has been making a name for himself on the international metal scene since 2002 when Firewind, as well as his former band Dream Evil, released debut albums. Though he left Dream Evil a few years later and has played as a guest musician with numerous other groups (including Arch Enemy, Nightrage, Sigh, etc.), Firewind has remained his primary band. The big news came over the summer of 2009 when Gus was chosen to replace Zakk Wylde alongside Ozzy Osbourne. Days of Defiance is Firewind's first album since their main man went over to the dark side to join Ozzy; let's take a look at it.

OKAY WHO'S THE WISE GUY THAT GOT A COPY BEFORE ME >:

Someone who's also the proud owner of the new (read: yet to be released) Iron Maiden and Accept albums.

Rating: 6 First half of the album is pretty weak, aside from World In Fire. Second half more than makes up for it though. Pretty damn solid album~

Rating: 7 SKG is the best instrumental ever...well...possibly. Sadly, in good conscience, I can't give this more than a 7...I only really and truly liked 6 tracks...and in such a large album; that isn't good enough really.
