Firewing has revealed their new vocalist, Jota Fortinho, in a haunting, new single entitled „Last Gasp“. The US-based band has Brazilian and North American musicians trained at the renowned Berklee College of Music, and is a musical universe conceptualized in mythological and cultural stories of the Armenian people. Caio Kehyayan, guitarist and founder of the band, joins forces with outstanding musicians around the world.
Following the band’s much acclaimed debut album, Resurrection (2021, MASSACRE RECORDS ), their new single „Last Gasp“ (get the song on all digital platforms HERE) is an ultra immersive conceptual song based on Armenian and Greek mythologies, which creates an allegory that immortalizes the memories of the Armenian ancestors.
„Composing FireWing songs is a journey in search of becoming eternal on earth and leaving the legacy of the Armenian people immortalized in this plan. My intention with this song is to send a strong message to the entire Armenian Diaspora. Since the genocide, thousands of Armenians have fled to different corners of the world, and currently there are more Armenians outside of Armenia than in the country itself, which is located in the Caucasus region.“
The band’s proposal is to unite the historical concepts in its cinematic universe with its musical compositions. FIREWING unites sounds, rhythms, historical and mythological facts from different cultures to contextualize the plot and create a musical experience that will bring a new color to progressive symphonic metal.
