Firepower was released on March 9 via Epic Records. The successor to Redeemer Of Souls, released in 2014, was produced by Tom Allom, Mike Exeter and Andy Sneap, who will replace Glenn Tipton on the Firepower tour due to the advance of Parkinson’s.
The decision not to tour Tipton made former guitarist K.K. Downing make a statement saying he was “stunned and stunned” by not being invited to join the band.
Asked by Wsou 89.5 FM if Firepower is heavier than the last release in 2014, guitarist Richie Faulkner said: “I think ‘heavy’ can mean many different things – could be heavy in terms of sound, could be heavy in terms of speed, could be heavy in terms of lyrical content”.
“So it is difficult to know what the interpretation of someone. I think it’s a more energetic record – I think there are more fires in it – and that’s one reason why ‘Firepower’ was a relevant title to call the album. It has that kind of intensity.”
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
