FIREWIND: “Welcome To The Empire” music video released!video clip was directed by Panagiotis

Kountouras, VFX and post production done by Media Distribution Partners.

Guitarist Gus G. states: “Welcome To The Empire” is the opening track of the
album and an obvious choice for a single. Making the video was an ongoing
work in progress as we filmed the band performance back in January. However,
we wanted to blend in futuristic visual effects for the story and as I’m a
huge sci-fi movie fan, I wanted to incorporate something along those lines.
Our director Panagiotis Kountouras came up with the concept and we
collaborated with MDP, a vfx company out of Hollywood, CA. The story is set
in a dystopia, where humanity has been surrendered to the New World Order.
Two cyborgs are playing with the future of mankind in a chess game. Each
move has consequences and technology will be the only winner. It was a
really challenging production, but we love the end result. We hope you will

excited for things to come.
