Firewind singer steps down
2013-01-15 by Voivod STAFF | 15 Comments

Apollo Papathanasio, vocalist of the acclaimed power metal act of Firewind, has parted ways with the band, as it was getting more and more difficult for him to follow the band on tour.

In view of their upcoming North American tour, Firewind announced Kelly Sundown Carpenter (Beyond Twilight, Adagio, Darkology) as their new vocalist.

His voice was quite suitable for Gus G’s songwriting. Shame.

Apollo have a great voice, and fit good with the powermetal style, bad new. The new singer, isnt bad but has a different style (he was singer of Beyond Twilight "Section X" album)
