The lyrics for each of the 14 Resurrection tracks, combined, they tell a complex story. Guitarist Caio Kehyayan explains how the duality issue of light vs. dark is discussed: “This begins when Vishap performs a dark ritual in order to condense the souls of all living beings inside a crystal, and thus have the domain of all existence. Those who resisted are plagued by the shadows every night. Those who failed to win their internal battles are absorbed by the crystal. When we lose to our own fears and give in to darkness, we can be consumed by that negative energy and become someone else”. “The conception of resurrection is very much connected to the concept of eternity. Basically, everything in the cosmos seeks eternity, be it light or darkness. Everything that exists wants to be eternal, and Vishap demonstrates this by trying to be stronger and thus dominate all beings in this universe”, he adds. The other character, Ember, carries another meaning: “It represents rebirth, the ability to reinvent and evolve. However, for such a pure being to be able to rise from the ashes, it’s necessary a receptacle that has an essence and aura as pure as that of Ember herself. In order to be eternal in the world and to keep his legacy alive, his knowledge and wisdom are passed down through the generations”. This transmission, throughout the bloodline of the chosen one, in the end directs the search for the light so that it strengthens and manages to win this battle. The message is that “In the end there is always hope”, he concludes.

The album feature Great guests: Haydée Irizarry (Aversed, Carnivora), Bill Hudson (Northtale / Doro / Trans-Siberian Orchestra) and singer Jenn Sakura are present, as well as virtuoso Brazilian guitarist Luis Kalil, Raphael Dantas (Soulspell, Ego Absence), Joe Atlan (Pentakill), Fabiano Rodrigues and Ryan Beevers (Unflesh).

feat: Haydée Irizarry

The first single released by FireWing in March was “Tales of Ember & Vishap: The Meaning of Life”, a track that also have a lyric video. The virtuoso guitarist Caio explain the song, which mixes melodic and aggressive moments: “It’s the music that represents the most the different technical approaches of the band. It contains simple melodies, but also complex rhythms and exotic harmonies. Airton explores different dynamics in his voice, still more with the participation of Haydée Irizarry, who brought a complementary texture”. On the lyrical concept of the song, the musician adds: “It’s the climax of a great battle between the two main characters in the album’s history. The lyrics are actually a dialogue between them, and in the chorus the narrator tells another perspective of the story”, concludes.

Far In Time (Single 2021)

The second single released by FireWing came out on April 6 on the main digital platforms. The track “Far in Time”, which also received a lyric video, has an abstract lyric theme that relates to reality. “The song talks about a world in darkness. People went into an internal battle, as the dragon Vishap is trying to absorb the flame of their lives, to become even more powerful”, explains Caio. The narrative tells that the abandonment of this battle leads to death, and that even with fear, there is still hope. The fantastic concept, however, is related to reality, as it can refer to “people who get lost inside their own head, because of depression. It’s about this internal battle of wanting to kill yourself and having suicidal thoughts, of not feeling enough”, he adds. The final message is to overcome difficulties and move on: “If you cannot win the life’s battles you will not be able to go far to eternalize yourself, to leave a legacy, a story. How far can you go?”, challenges the guitarist, leaving the closure due to the listener’s interpretation.

Time Machine (Single 2021)

01. Time Machine
feat: Jenn Sakura

The third and most recent single from FireWing is “Time Machine”, an expressive song that works with different nuances and colors in its sound, where you can almost touch it. The composition gives the listener a sense of immersion, taking him directly to the core of the whole plot. “The lyrics are about the awakening of Ember’s ancestral powers in his receptacle, which, moved by the anguish of losing his beloved to the dark ritual of Vishap, tries to build a portal to the past in order to reverse this situation. He ends up being tried again and must show that his soul is worthy of merging with Ember. However, even if he manage to find their beloved on the spiritual plane, the two realize that there will be no chance of reversing this, and so they need to move on, their bond of eternal love is all that is left. In the end, he needed to be brave and see that his calling was much greater”, explain the singer Airton Araujo.
