    I thought i'd make this thread dedicated to the new 7th Firewind album, plz post any new information here, including live/studio video's, interviews with information related to the album and pictures here.

    I think we can confirm that the new drummer will be Jo Nunez,

    I've got one of his drumsticks during the tour and it's exactly the same as the once you see on this picture that Gus tweeted. I'm really happy that he joined Firewind he is a great drummer and he really fits in well with the guys.

    Hurray!

    Also let's hope they're keeping Jo permanently, hopefully mine and Kirsty's "Are you keeping Jo permanently? We think you should. We like him. Go on, keep him in the band. He works really well. Please keep him in the band. We think you should keep him." has worked :p

    And here's the video from the studio (not sure what your link was, I assume it was this, but the link's not working for me :( )

    I am really happy hè joined and i love the studio dairy, Jo really fits and you can see that ozzy is rubbing off on Gus: "can you just shut the fuck up and play the part." genius. My link btw was to a pic that the guys tweeted where you can see Jo's kit.

    He's such a nice guy, all us girls were stood outside the gig going 'awwwwwww, I just want to give him a hug!'. He just smiles all the time, he's great!
    Ah okay, I'm not on twitter which could be why I couldn't see it...

    How about we give Mike Portnoy (ex Dream Theatre drummer) a stab at it! I think he's looking for a job!

    Mark was definitely great but I just love Jo, all bands should have a constantly happy person in it!!!

    I want to Firewind to play Bloodstock festival on the same day as Alice Cooper, might actually get me back to festivals this year, haven't been to a festival since 2009...

    I love the riffs in both songs and Apollo's melodies are killer.

    Another win for Firewind thus far.

    As much as I love tham, am I the only one concerned that they might be falling into the trap of churning out albums? It's only just been 2 years since DoD which whilst good, I felt lacked the focus of Allegiance and Premonition. I don't wanna see my favourite band do a HammerFall...

    PS. Incidently, very happy to hear about BE and FbF rereleases, although I don't see 'Still the Winds' on the tracklisting!
