As for the guitar work, they frequent much more the usage of the acoustic guitar, an element that has been around for long in Firewind but had become more present in the recent albums see Allegiance's "Deliverance" , but in "Days of Defiance" it is shining in three songs out of thirteen, a relatively high cipher in comparison to previous endeavors of the band. I understand how you feel mate - English isn't my first language too. Sincerely, it's the first time I can find Petros playing, and he does a worthy job, nice bass patterns, and good structures for the songs to go on properly.

The song is indeed very original, it has all elements a Firewind song has and it has much more power and focus on it than other songs in the album. Poet October 25th Comments.
Cactupuss November 7th 52 Comments. Firewind Days of Defiance 4. He is even more pumped up than he has been before, and the composition of the solos are much more interesting than in the two previous efforts, not sure if this is product of playing with Ozzy or of the experience in making this type of metal, but it's really good he got into this way of playing. Aside from these songs, which by no coincidence are the standouts, the quality of the CD is in truth a bit up and down.
A nuclear facelift, a carefully threaded conglomeration of Gus G's endless riffing reservoir and Apollo Papathanasio's vocal prowess, with the experienced backing of keyboardist Bob Katsionis and bassist Petros Christodoylidis, that album heralded that Firewind was no longer in contention, but now a force to be reckoned with on the European scene, giving and getting on the same level as their many German, Italian and Swedish counterparts.
It's true that the transition should have been smoother, especially there where you mentioned. Very few are striking to the point that they become infectious and rattle around in the skull until you can listen to them again and meet sweet release. Scoot November 5th Comments. There's a small chance power metal firewinnd finally be cirewind the mainstream in America.

This style of metal can be evolved into a number of different forms, but it usually works best when combined to an orthodoxy and is focused more on execution than innovation. It's still a little ballad-rich, but that may be just what they need to make a run on U.
But with all the things going for Firewind right now, they could be a big firewindd act in the U. I only have Firewinds first album, but it slays.
Days Of Defiance / Ltd. Edition
Everyone seemed to be really into what they were doing. Yeah it's funny in a cynical kind of way lol. However, the real charm is in his ability to not only play well, but write well and work well with a fine batch of musicians. Irving Staff Reviewer October 25th Deflance. Apollo's voice is also aggressive and heavy sounding like it has been previously. Firewind have released another strong album, which gets past the shortcomings of European power metal for the most part.
To be honest, this was what I expected from Firewind, but on the same time, it was what I wanted to see as well.
Power-chord patterns that have been used before are back, just to remember the old Firewind, and there's even some old-school guitar playing in here. An absolutely satisfactory release, the best of Firewind till now. Cactupuss October 27th 52 Comments. Impressions of what, exactly? Voivod Staff Reviewer October 27th Comments. Bob Katsonis is also quite remarkable: Here's an example of what I am trying to convey: Among other new elements in "Days of Defiance" is the keyboard.
I find myself in the minority when it comes to opinion on their breakthrough CD right enough, so I suppose anything I say in relation to it may have to be taken with a pinch of salt.
PowerDasoOctober 26th, Throughout many of the songs, I felt as if the band were revisiting ground they had already covered, offering just more of the same graces they've committed for over a decade. I like the fact they went back into instrumentals with this album, since the last time they did one was firewinc Allegiance, and it was really short "Before the Storm", for reference.
