Northern Kings can without a doubt be called an all-star line-up of Finnish metal. The group is not an ordinary band, but a league of four vocalists, who are all frontmen of successful heavy metal bands. They wanted to create something special together and came up with an idea of arranging 80’s classics to heavy metal versions - to which all the four vocalists could contribute. The Northern Kings are Marco Hietala (Nightwish), Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica), JP Leppäluoto (Charon) and J Ahola (Teräsbetoni). The tracks on the debut album “Reborn”, Finnish release scheduled to October 31, include legendary pieces such as “I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight” by Cutting Crew, “In The Air Tonight” by Phil Collins, “Brothers In Arms” by Dire Straits and “Sledgehammer” by Peter Gabriel. The arrangements and styles vary from doom-esque gothic metal to faster-beating heavy metal, such as introduced by Nightwish, Sonata Arctica and alike.
