Last year there were a lot of sad fans when we announced that iconic frontman Petri Lindroos had left Norther to concentrate on Ensiferium. Truth is, I really enjoyed Lindroos in both bands, but Ensiferium’s ‘From Afar’ album was pretty damn good -- good enough to be in my top albums of ’09 -- and I loved Norther’s new vocalist’s past work with Imperanon--so in all I think everything worked out shiny.
Well you can finally hear the most recent Norther lineup including vocalist Aleksi Sihvonen and guitarist Daniel Freyberg (Naildown) on wax with their newly released single ‘Break Myself Away’. ‘Break Myself Away’ is available streaming above and for download (you need to register for the download button to appear) or on the band's MySpace page. The band has also set up a paypal donation center here, to help curb the costs of recording their sixth album. Check out the track, help the band out if you can afford it, and let us hear what you have to say about it all in the comment section.
