Last month, Swedish-American power metal supergroup NORTHTALE played two concerts in Japan as part of the Evoken Fest. Between these shows, they had no time to rest, but also recorded their first-ever music video in the Tokyo metropolis. Watch ‘Everyone’s A Star,’ which was shot, edited and directed by Jason McNamara, over on YouTube: https://www.
In addition, NORTHTALE are happy to announce that they’re confirmed for next year’s edition of ProgPower USA. At the renowned festival, taking place in Atlanta, GA (September 9-12, 2020), the band will be sharing the stage with their label mates BEAST IN BLACK, THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA, Turilli/Lione RHAPSODY among others.
NORTHTALE comment, “We’re happy and honored to announce that we will be performing at ProgPower USA in 2020. Thanks Milton, Glenn and Nathan for having us! It’ll be great to see our friends and make new ones! To celebrate this, we’re releasing our first music video, for the song ‘Everyone’s A Star’! It was shot in Tokyo, Japan during our recent visit for two shows at the Evoken Fest 2019. It was shot in the studios of our Japanese label, King Records, at the ESP Guitars Shop BIG BOSS and literally outside on the streets of Tokyo! Special thanks Ryo at King Records, Makoto Suzuki at ESP Guitars and director and producer Jason McNamara for his amazing work!”

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
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).
