Gus G. will release his debut solo album I Am The Fire in March, but you don’t have to wait until then to hear what Gus has got in store for us: he’s just released a video for the opening track, “My Will Be Done,” featuring Mats Levén [Clandesmass, Ex-Yngwie Malmsteen/Therion], which you can check out right here!
The song was produced by Patric Ullaeus / revolver.se [Within Temptation, In Flames, Lacuna Coil]. “I hope you all enjoy the first taste of things to come,” Gus says. “‘My Will Be Done’ is a cool rock track with a modern edge to it… Looking back, I can’t believe all the great musicians that got on board for this album. Everybody brought in their unmistakable style and talent and they really lifted the songs! Check it out and enjoy the music!”
I Am The Fire was mixed by Jay Ruston [Anthrax, Stone Sour, Steel Panther] will be released on March 17 in Europe and March 18 in North America, via Century Media Records. Gus handles all guitar, bass and keyboards on the album, and is joined by drummers Jeff Friedl [A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Devo] And Daniel Erlandsson [Arch Enemy], bassists David Ellefson [Megadeth], Billy Sheehan [Mr. Big, David Lee Roth] and Marty O’brien [Tommy Lee, We Are The Fallen], and vocalists Mats Leven, Blake Allison [Devour The Day], Michael Starr [Steel Panther], Alexia Rodriguez [Eyes Set To Kill], Tom S. Englund [Evergrey], Jacob Bunton [Adler] and Jeff Scott Soto [Trans-Siberian Orchestra, ex-Journey].
And of course the album is full of Seymour Duncan pickups. Gus uses active Blackouts as well as his own signature Gus G FIRE Blackouts set, which gives you the crushing output of an active humbucker set but with the warmth and organic response of passives via the use of the Blackouts Modular Preamp.
