"The Quest", the new video from Greek guitar virtuoso Gus G., well known in rock and metal circles for his work as Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist and as leader of his own band FIREWIND, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Ivan Colic of iCODE.
Commented Gus: "Today is a very exciting day for me — not only it's the start of my solo tour in the U.S. (with Angel Vivaldi), but the premiere of my new video for 'The Quest'. This is a very special track, as it's the only instrumental from my 'Brand New Revolution' solo album, and it's an over-the-top, high-energy metal track, with tons of shredding, big melodies and crazy arrangements. Since the album release, people have been telling me how much they've been enjoying this song, so I decided to make a video for it!
"Working with the iCode team in Serbia was a great experience and our goal was to make a crazy, cinematic, action packed video inspired by some of my favorite '80s cult classic films like 'Mad Max', 'Conan The Barbarian' and 'Highlander'. If you're into any of these movies, I'm sure you'll dig this video! Plus, is there a guitar player on this Earth that wouldn't wanna kill bad guys with his guitar superpowers?"
"Brand New Revolution" was released in Europe in July 2015 via Century Media. The CD was made available through Century Media in Australia and South America, Dismanic/eOne in North America and King Records in Japan. The cover artwork was once again created by Gustavo Sazes, who previously worked with Gus on the guitarist's debut album, "I Am The Fire", and also took care of artwork duties by such bands as ARCH ENEMY, KAMELOT and FIREWIND.
"Brand New Revolution" features guest vocal appearances by Jeff Scott Soto (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JOURNEY, TALISMAN), Elize Ryd (AMARANTHE), Jacob Bunton (ADLER, LYNAM) and Mats Levén (CANDLEMASS, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, TREAT).
