FIREWIND guitarist Gus G. has posted this message on the band's official website:

"Hello metalheads! The third part of our 'World Allegiance' tour came to an end with four very successful shows in Japan! It felt so good going back there exactly one year after our performance at Loud Park festival. This has been our longest Japan tour so far, visiting four major cities - Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Yokohama. All venues were good and packed with loud Japanese metalheads - exactly the way we like it!

We have some great memories of this tour both onstage and offstage. We were treated excellent by the people of Avex and Creative man (promoters), our Japanese crew was top notch and everything was on time and perfectly in place. That's the way the Japanese people work. Even though I've been there eight times so far, I'm still amazed by their professionalism.

On our off day we had the chance to do lots of promotion for various radios, TV interviews and of course the prestigious magazines Burrn! and Young Guitar whom I also shot two instructional DVDs for.

Domo Arigato to Avex company, Kaz & King Records, Nozue, Yuka, A2 and the whole crew, KAMELOT and their crew for being super cool to us - it was a pleasure sharing the stage with you guys!

Also, we'd like to thank the German Metal God, Henning Basse (METALIUM) for taking care of the vocal duties the past months and giving everything on stage with us each night. You're a friend for life and we already miss you!

Last but not least, thanks to all our fans in the Land of the Rising Sun for their never ending support and love! We'll be back soon!"
