NORTHTALE – behind this illustrious name lies nothing less than a Swedish-American power metal supergroup! Formed by guitarist Bill Hudson (TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAI AM MORBID, ex-U.D.O./DIRKSCHNEIDER), vocalist Christian Eriksson (ex-TWILIGHT FORCE), and drummer Patrick Johansson (ex-YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ex-W.A.S.P. etc.) in late 2017, the line-up was quickly completed by Mikael Planefeldt (bass) as well as keyboardist Jimmy Pitts.

Delivering a load of (largely) fast-paced anthems, imbued with Eriksson‘s soaring vocals, the band’s 13-song debut album ‘Welcome To Paradise’ will not only please fans of titans such as HELLOWEENSONATA ARCTICAGAMMA RAYSTRATOVARIUS among others, but draw new fans to the genre too. The record was produced by NORTHTALE themselves, whilst Jonas Kjellgren (Blacklounge Studios, Sweden) took care of mixing and mastering duties. Its artwork was designed by renowned rock/metal artist Felipe Machado (BLIND GUARDIANIRON SAVIORBRAINSTORMKAMBRIUM etc.).

The group is set to conquer not only your audio systems, but also the world’s stages, with their very first gig set to take place at their label mates SABATON‘s very own open-air festival (Aug 14-17), shortly later heading into two concerts in Tokyo, Japan for the Evoken Festival (Aug 30 & Sep 1).

NORTHTALE live:
14. – 17.08. S Falun – Sabaton Open Air
