NORTHTALE was born out of the desire of three world class musicians to work with each other in creating a new power metal band, blending melodic, anthemic choruses with fast paced rhythms and technically challenging, often harmonized solos.Hudson met vocalist Christian Eriksson at a summer festival in Sweden, where both were performing with their former groups, UDO DIRKSCHNEIDER and TWILIGHT FORCE, respectively. Both musicians seemed to share the same ideas, and Hudson invited Eriksson to sing on what at the time was supposed to be his solo album.For the bass, Eriksson brought in his former class mate at Hollywood’s Musicians Institute, Mikael Planefeldt, who had been working in Sweden with STREAMLINE. Jimmy Pitts met Bill Hudson while both musicians worked with Bill’s TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAbandmate Vitalij Kuprij (ARTENSION, RING OF FIRE). Pitts seemed like the obvious choice and a perfect fit to complete the band’s line-up.
