When they presented me with the ‘Sessions’ idea I thought it was a great way to meet some fans at a more intimate environment, play some stuff for them, answer questions and actually get to meet them.

“I will definitely be playing material from Ozzy and Firewind albums and hopefully I’ll meet lots of you down there. Remember, this is going to be a free entrance event! See you soon.”

Greek melodic Metallers FIREWIND, lead by guitar-virtuoso Gus G., continue to promote their latest killer album release “Days Of Defiance” around the globe and have now launched a very special online contest:

 

Presented by the Guitar magazine (Germany) and Top Guitar magazine (Poland), Gus G. showcases some of his breathtaking playing techniques in a clip that invites other talented players to reproduce the piece as video recording on their own in order qualify to be handpicked by Gus to win one of his ESP Ltd. signature model guitars as well as a Blackstar HT 5S Ministack Amp.

The contest runs up to April 15th, 2011, so find more details and get ready for some quality shredding right here (or watch it below): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzpCnZol_zk

 

Gus G. checks in as follows: Hi all, just wanted to give you a little update on what’s been going on in our world lately. Although I’ve been on tour in N. America rocking on Ozzy Osbourne’s side the past few months, FIREWIND have been working on our upcoming plans and we really need you to stay tuned for this one, cause this Spring super cool news are coming your way and they involve a new video & single, tourdates (I know our fans have been waiting for these…) + even more cool stuff!

But we thought we’d start out by giving away some gear, cause that’s how cool our camp & endorsement partners are! So, check out the video contest that Century Media put together. The idea is very cool, all you gotta do is just play one (or actually a few) of my licks as demonstrated on the video and post them online. I’ll check them ALL out and pick the winner who will get my signature ESP guitar and a very cool HT-5 Blackstar amp!


I’m always very flattered when I hear from guitar players that my music and playing inspires and influences them. I’d love to see your videos ripping on these licks and hopefully you’ll be the lucky one!”

GUS G. Discusses New FIREWIND Album, Playing With OZZY In New Video Interview

July 20th, 2010

Llexi Leon, creator of the multi-media concept Eternal Descent, conducted an interview with FIREWIND/OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist Gus G. shortly before Ozzy Osbourne’s July 3, 2010 performance at the iTunes festival at London, England’s Roundhouse. Watch the chat below.

Gus G. is featured in the third issue of the gothic comic book series Eternal Descent, slated for publication later this month. The issue features a storyline inspired by guitar hero Gus G. who helps ETERNAL DESCENT characters Lyr and Sirian race against time to save Apollo and the rest of the band from the dissonant call of the Damned.

Gus G. - Eternal Descent

The comic book will be available at comic book stores worldwide through Diamond Distribution.

Llexi Leon recruits ESP artists for cameo appearances in the Eternal Descent comic which is inspired by a host of iconic metal musicians.

The launch issue came out on March 31, 2010, with subsequent issues to be released every 4-6 weeks.

Eternal Descent spotlights GOD FORBID guitarist Doc Coyle in issue 2, and Gus G. of FIREWIND and OZZY OSBOURNE in issue 3. Other bands — including STATIC-X, ATREYU, CHILDREN OF BODOM, and SOULFLY — are slated for cameo appearances in upcoming issues.

“Llexi Leon really caught my attention when I met him at NAMM, and he described his vision of combining actual rock dudes in his comic book series and doing an issue with each one,” explains Gus G. “I immediately asked him if we can be in one of his books and that’s how the whole thing started. It’s incredible! I feel Llexi has done a great job in capturing all of the band members’ characters.”

Peter Stalfors bass player – Dream Evil

March 18th, 2010

Dream Evil

Bass Player Peter Stalfors

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall


Live pictures by: Anders Sandvall

Transcript by: Ulrika Henriksson

Promo pictures by: Patrik Ullaeus

Thanks to Century Media Records for providing the promo pictures and thanks to Jenny Walroth at Century Media Scandinavia for setting up the interview.

d_e_promo_5.jpg

 

Here is an interview I did with bass player Peter Stalfors in the Swedish heavy metal act Dream Evil. The interview was done in Lund when they stopped by to do a show as support act to Stratovarious earlier this year. It was a really long time ago since I last spoke with the band members so I had a lot to talk to Peter about. But due to the time limit we mostly talked about the new album IN THE NIGHT, the new members, the tour and of course what Peter thinks the future has in store for Gothenburg’s finest act Dream Evil.
