As Friday continues to chug along, there is nothing like a good old fashioned label signing announcement to share with the readership. With that, let’s take a look at the recent news from AFM Records who have just signed Gus G. and his band Firewind to a worldwide deal.
The Press Release:
Greek power metal icons Firewind, the band of former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G., have signed a worldwide record deal with German metal label AFM Records. The collaboration between the band and AFM already started with the latest FIREWIND album “Immortals”, which AFM released in the North American territory back then. Subsequently, GUS G. signed with AFM to also release his solo albums together, and now we are happy to announce that also FIREWIND’s future albums will be released worldwide by AFM.
The Scoop: The mighty Turisas is back in NYC to deliver a dose of Finnish Battle Metal like never before and they are doing so with the help of Gus G. and his band Firewind and the lead off group of experimental musical maniacs in Stolen Babies. Whew is all I can say when I think of this package too much and I am as always excited to welcome such talent back to our region. I’ve seen all three of these bands on a number of occasions so I know full well that the fans will not be disappointed. It’s also exciting to inform the readers that thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, PiercingMetal.com will be putting a couple of its readers into the show. Check out how to enter our contest below.
When and Where: Wednesday, February 6th at 7pm @ The Gramercy Theatre ( 127 East 23rd Street, NYC)

Whew. How are you all doing? Are you still with me as we press on towards the final stages of our “New Year’s Music Resolutions for 2013”? Man I sure hope so because this has been a ride like no other and I am loving getting the plans of the Metal and Rock greats out to your computer or mobile device screens. Here we go with Chapter Ten. Enjoy.
1. Jason Lekberg (Ikillya): My resolution for 2013 is to make the best album of my career thus far and hopefully share it with as many people as possible. 🙂
2. Michael Scondotto (The Last Stand/Inhuman): My New Year’s Music Resolution is to play as many shows as possible with The Last Stand, as our debut full length “The Time Is Now” comes out on January 22nd on Eulogy Recordings. Aside from that, look for another Inhuman vinyl edition and maybe my Metal project will surface sometime in 2013???
3. Alberto Rigoni (Solo Artist): Hey world, wanna still hear some good quality music in the future? Please support the bands and artists purchasing their music, digital or CD.. otherwise they will disappear!
