FIREWIND To Re-Release Debut Album In Japan

Greek metallers FIREWIND will have their 2002 debut album, "Between Heaven & Hell", re-released in Japan on October 10 via King Records. The reissue includes new artwork, liner notes from guitarist Gus G. and producer David T. Chastain as well as two bonus tracks.

Originally released with different cover artwork in Japan, this time the album will include the European cover which was created by legendary artist Kristian Wahlin (KING DIAMOND, DISSECTION, AT THE GATES)

Commented Gus G.: "We've wanted to re-release our debut album for sometime now since it's been very hard to find, or even in some territories out of print. Also, we finally make it available to our Japanese fans with the European cover which I personally always liked best. Since the album's coming out the very same day as our Japan tour starts, we will add a few songs from this album [to] our set list. I also want to say that we're working on re-releasing it in the rest of the world as well. This will probably happen early 2008. More details to come soon."

01. Between Heaven & Hell
02. Warrior
03. World of Conflict
04. Destination Forever

FIREWIND recently announced that singer Apollo Papathanasio will take the next few months off and will be temporarily replaced by German vocalist Henning Basse (METALIUM).

FIREWIND's new single, "Breaking the Silence" (featuring Tara Teresa), entered the national single chart in Greece at position No. 19 and moved up to No. 16 in its second week. The video for the single's title cut — which can be viewed below — was directed by Patric Ullaeus (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL).
