Guitar virtuoso Gus G. has signed a worldwide solo deal with Century Media Records. Well known in rock and metal circles for his work as Ozzy Osboune's guitarist and as leader of his own band Firewind, Gus G. will make his solo debut with the release of "I Am The Fire" in spring 2014.

Says GUS G. of the signing: "Loyalty is a very important thing in the music business, and for me it just felt natural to trust my first solo effort to the hands of the record company that has been loyal, supportive, and has helped build my career for more than 11 years now - a label that I truly feel as a family. Thank you Robert Kampf, Leif Jensen, Antje Lange, Don Robertson, Steve Joh, Jens Prueter, Nasrin Vahdani, Paul Gargano and the rest of the Century family! I truly feel blessed to be a part of CM history and look forward to exploring new territories with this new album!"

Century Media founder and owner Robert Kampf adds: "'I am the Fire' is going to be another display of the amazing talent Gus G. possesses. We at Century Media are proud to work with a player and songwriter of his class and status, as well as the fantastic new album that Gus has crafted. Horns up!"

The album was mixed by Jay Ruston (Anthrax/Stone Sour/Steel Panther) and was recorded between Los Angeles and Gus' home in Greece through the latter half of 2013. A few of the album's tracks include "Eyes Wide Open," "Redemption," "End Of The Line" and "Blame It On Me." The album showcases a well-balanced mix of active rock, classic hard rock, traditional metal and guitar-driven instrumentals, taking listeners on a diverse journey and opening doors to Gus G.'s soulful playing. Guest musicians and vocalists will be revealed in the coming weeks.

LOOKS LIKE GUS G. ISN'T WAITING AROUND FOR OZZY'S SOLO CRAZY TRAIN TO START ROLLING AGAIN. IT MUST MEAN GOOD NEWS FOR BLACK SABBATH'S FUTURE, UNLESS OZZY WOULD JUST AS SOON CAST GUS ASIDE IN FAVOR OF ANOTHER GUITARIST FOR HIS SOLO BAND SLOT............AS FOR GUS' SOLO DEBUT, I CAN'T STAND ALBUMS THAT HAVE NOTHING BUT GUEST VOCALISTS ON THEM. IOMMI HAS TRIED THIS, AND SO HASN'T SLASH. I'LL PASS.
