GUS G is currently out touring Europe but will be heading to these shores in January to play a UK exclusive, one off show at the Underworld in Camden, London on 9th January, with Andy James and Dendera supporting.
Highly acclaimed guitarist GUS G. released his album “Fearless” earlier in 2018, the successor to 2015’s ‘Brand New Revolution’ and it marked the Firewind mastermind’s first release since exiting Ozzy Osbourne’s band in 2017.
Gus G once again proves to be a phenomenal guitarist on Fearless, presenting technical skills which exclude all possibility of doubt and a compositional talent that allows his fellow musicians to shine. Hard-as-nails metal tracks such as the opener ‘Letting Go’, ‘Mr Manson’, which is driven by a dark bass/guitar riff, and the subsequent melodic ‘Don´t Tread On Me’ immediately propel the new album into the desired direction.
At the same time, the three instrumental songs give listeners an idea of the outstanding talent of the 37-year-old who is easily on a par with George Lynch (‘Mr. Scary’) and Michael Schenker (‘Into The Arena’). “A lot of fans have asked me to record more instrumental tracks. Voilà, here they are,” grins Gus. Last but not least, the successful cover version of the Dire Straits classic ‘Money For Nothing’, which surprises with an unusual change of key after the noteworthy intro, deserves a mention.
