Firewind: Live Premonition- Deluxe Edition (DVD/CD)

One DVD and two CDs full of great metal- what more could the Firewind enthusiasts want! After five studio albums this is the first live DVD release from the Greek Power Metal band. With a more stable line-up for the past two albums Allegiance and Premonition, guitarist and founder Gus G and his band mates have delivered a mighty performance for the fans.

Live Premonition has twenty two tracks including two solos and one part drummer solo going into the song "Dreamchaser". I was pleased to see all their albums were covered during this recording, filmed at the Principal Club Theater in Thessaloniki, Greece on January 12th 2008. As well as a great Guitar solo from Gus G, Drummer Mark Cross and Keyboardist Bob Katsionis also have their turn with respective impressive solos. The overall presentation is great and it sounds fantastic and very powerful. The title track from their latest album "Allegiance" kicks off and is a great starter just bursting with energy. One track that sounds sensational live is the instrumental "The Fire and the Fury", one of my favorites from the band which is found on the album Burning Earth. Vocalist Apollo Papathanasio gives a superb performance here, in fact the whole band were really on fire this night.

The extras include a tour documentary, four video clips, two unplugged tracks and three live tracks captured in Montreal 2008. The two CD's are the audio version of the main DVD concert. Live Premoniton should have a very wide appeal, and overall this is a fine release from a great band.
