Greek Heavy Metal act FIREWIND are gearing up to release their first live performance Blu-Ray, Still Raging, on September 1, 2023. This special performance marks the band's 20th anniversary, and it was only fitting to hold the show in their hometown of Thessaloniki, Greece at the Principal Club Theater.

I had the chance to preview this special performance and I can confidently say that FIREWIND fans won't be disappointed. Even if you're just tuning into the band, there's plenty to like here, from the anthemic songs to the powerful performances.

Guitarist and founder GUS G has been at the helm since the band's inception in 2002. There have been a lot of member changes around him, including his own hiatus as OZZY OSBOURNE's guitarist from 2009-2012. FIREWIND's current line-up debuted on their 2020 self-titled album, and Still Raging is just one of what is likely to be many shining moments in this foursome's future.

I had the chance to catch up with GUS G ahead of the release of Still Raging. I'd like to clarify that the performance is packaged as a Blu-Ray and 2CD set. Twice in our interview I said it was a Blu-Ray and 2 DVDs.

Highlights include:

-Discussion of Still Raging live Blu-Ray/2CD
-The original plan for the bandís 20th anniversary
-How things happened to fall in place for this performance
-Picking the set list
-Did anything need to be touched up or edited?
-How vocalist Herbie Langhans (AVANTASIA) was recruited
-Were there attempts to have past members at the show?
-Upcoming performances
-The next FIREWIND studio album is completed
-Is there a title? When can we expect it?
-20th Anniversary of Between Heaven And Hell
-Memories or recording and releasing the album
-Not meeting his studio band until live show rehearsals
-Working with David T. Chastain of Leviathan Records
-The next GUS G solo album
-And much, much more
