If you need a deep dive into Power Metal or have been dreaming about winter landscapes, ice, snow, wolves and swords, then you've found your paradise.

Do you miss the golden years of Power Metal? NorthTale are here to help your heart to find an icy place or frozen wilderness in the north where you can bask in your admiration for Stratovarius, Helloween and Hammerfall. Bill Hudson (bass) and Christian Eriksson (vocals) originally met at a summer festival in Sweden where both were performing (Hudson with Udo Dirkschneider and Eriksson with Twilight Force, although both have now left those respective positions) and it was at this juncture that they started to share ideas.

NorthTale's debut release 'Welcome To Paradise' offers us the basics we all know and love (and an extra thank you to the guys from me because there's no Symphonic/cinematic anything), including high-pitched vocals, screaming guitars and sing-along choruses. That's all there is, but it works in dramatic fashion with these strong points on the front line just as it was in the nineties. However, please don't think this is just a servile repetition because there's no lack of originality on 'Welcome To Paradise'; NorthTale have their own personality, and they all add a unique touch of talent.

On the drums there is a huge musician in the shape of Patrick Johansson, and we're talking about the former Yngwie Malmsteen drummer with all his multitude of experience and distinctive style. This potent potion is then completed by adding bassist Mikael Planefeldt (Streamline) and keyboardist Jimmy Pitts to the cauldron. Combine them all and you have magic; it's like a musical time machine, albeit one firmly anchored to modern production and technology. The band's debut album gets straight to the point with no fillers and the group deliver their best on the speediest of songs, although I must give a special mention to the rhythm section who are absolutely at the forefront.

If you need a deep dive into Power Metal or have been dreaming about winter landscapes, ice, snow, wolves and swords, then you've found your paradise and a happy ending to this (North)Tale.
