Searching for some adult power metal? For some power metal detoxified from the "Dungeons & Dragons" stereotype? For some power metal clean of orchestrations, so that you can recognize guitarwork & co? If that's what you're looking for, then you'll adore Firewind, and in particular The Premonition.

Staff pick by
MoraWintersoul

30.12.2011 Whenever I pick up Firewind's latest effort, Days Of Defiance, I always end up listening to this instead. Classy, polished, catchy, heavy and prog-tinged, nicely written and performed - probably as high as this band's gonna get. No cigar in 2011 for you, lads. But it's cool, this one has got enough swag in it to last for several years.
