Northtale want to Shape Your Reality
As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, Northtale has signed with Nuclear Blast and are set to perform at Sabaton Open Air 2019. The Swedish-American power metal supergroup’s much anticipated debut album “Welcome To Paradise” is set for release on August 2nd.
The band has now unveiled a lyric video for the second single off the album, ‘Shape Your Reality.’ Watch it here:
Guitarist and founding member Bill Hudson comments, “This was the song that started it all. The perfect representation of most of the elements that form our music: melody, technique, a simple song structure, guitar/keyboard leads and speed. Lyrically, it’s about my beliefs in the universe and the ability we have to harness its power. I live my entire life by that premise. Thoughts become things, and every dream can and will come true if you’re able to focus all of your energy into making it real. It is ALL in your mind. Use it and make your own future. Some fans might already know a previous version of this song we put out independently last year, but we’re now happy to present everyone with the album version of ‘Shape Your Reality.'”
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, the band’s 13-song debut album »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 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 GUARDIAN, IRON SAVIOR, BRAINSTORM, KAMBRIUM etc.).
