Think of Bob Katsionis as the Vangelis of Metal. Extraordinarily talented, a multi-faceted career, and highly respected in music. So it only made sense for myself and Turn It Up host Jim Alvino to speak with him on a tourbus outside of a bar in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. While Firewind deserves arena-status, the band tours the U.S. no matter the climate. Therefore their dedication to their craft knows no boundaries, and as this conversation proves Bob and the band will push those boundaries. While we may or may not get a Firewind african-drumming album, we can expect more Melodic Metal mastery. But here's hoping for Bob to record a tribute album to the older synth masters like Vangelis, Tomita, and Synergy.
