Northtale reveal “Welcome To Paradise” album details!

Out August 2, 2019 through Nuclear Blast.

Swedish-American power metal supergroup Northtale recently signed a deal with Nuclear Blast. Now the cooperation has started to bear fruit: The band’s 13-song debut album »Welcome To Paradise«, is set to be released on August 2, 2019 and features artwork from renowned rock/metal artist Felipe Machado. The record was produced by Northtale themselves, whilst Jonas Kjellgren (Blacklounge Studios, Sweden) took care of mixing and mastering duties.

Guitarist/band founder Bill Hudson comments, “The artwork for »Welcome To Paradise« represents an entrance to whatever ‘paradise’ represents to each of us. With this album, we intend to introduce the band to the world, as well as to spread our message, that you can be or do whatever you want, it’s all inside your own mind. Felipe Machado did a great job capturing our ideas and bringing them into reality. The album, the music and the lyrics all seek to empower the listener and remind them that THEY are masters of their destiny and what happens in their lives.”

The first single is due very soon, stay tuned!

Northtale – behind this illustrious name lies nothing less than a Swedish-American power metal supergroup! Formed by guitarist Bill Hudson (TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, I 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, »Welcome To Paradise« will not only please fans of titans such as HELLOWEEN, SONATA ARCTICA, GAMMA RAY, STRATOVARIUS among others, but draw new fans to the genre too.

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 is: Christian Eriksson | vocals – Bill Hudson | guitars – Mikael Planefeldt | bass – Jimmy Pitts | keyboard – Patrick Johansson | drums
