It was during the 'All Star Jam' at ProgPower USA in 2007, when current Nightwish singer Floor Jansen and Pagan's Mind guitarist Jorn Viggo Lofstad spontaneously joined forces on stage for some cover songs and noticed the creative magic between them. Although the two musicians had never met before, they soon discovered their mutual love for stripped down hard rock and decided to write some songs together. In 2008 still barely knowing each other, they composed an entire album's worth of material in next to no time. But due to their tight schedules with their main bands, their new project named NORTHWARD never found its way into the spotlight - until this day!

In 2017, the year of NIGHTWISH's break, Floor took the opportunity to contact her old friend Jorn Viggo again, to see if he was still interested in resurrecting NORTHWARD - and of course, he was! "Jørn Viggo was positive about the project and we started to make the overall plans, meeting again in March of 2017 in Sweden to go through all the material together to see if we still felt happy with what we had created", remembers Floor Jansen.

Stepping free from all boundaries NORTHWARD's sound is strong, euphoric and straight in the tradition of SKUNK ANANSIE, FOO FIGHTERS and ALTER BRIDGE but also older bands such as DEEP PURPLE and LED ZEPPELIN, the Music comes straight to the point and makes no compromises.

With the help of producer Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT etc.), who mixed the record, they forged a raw diamond composed of heavy riffs and Floor's incomparable voice, free from influences of the musicians' main bands. And although the songs had originally been written in 2008, they just felt as fresh and alive upon a second hearing, as they had on the very first day of their creation. "The music is melodic, but also in your face and kick ass rock. Cool riffs, good melodies, tasteful arrangements. We would simply like to call it 'Good Music'", commented the singer and adds: "We wanted to explore a stripped down sound, with drums, bass, guitar and vocals. Not the heavy layers of keyboards, choirs etc.".

Alongside Floor Jansen and Jorn Viggo Lofstad, Morty Black (TNT) handled bass duties, while drums were handled by Jango Nilsen and Stian Kristoffersen (PAGAN'S MIND). You will also hear a guest appearance by Floor's sister Irene Jansen, singing a duet on the song ’Drifting Islands‘. And finally, Ronny Tegner from PAGAN'S MIND played the piano on one song.

This year, NORTHWARD is ready to break free. Floor Jansen states: "We are happy and excited to be able to release this rock album under Nuclear Blast’s name. They accepted the challenge of bringing this non-metal album into the world by believing in us as musicians, and also for the pure love for music that sounds good to them. We have both put our heart and soul into this album. We are very proud of it and we can't wait to show it to you all!"

MFF te lit, écoute et trouve ça pas mal du tout. Floor Jansen qui rugit sur du heavy bien dynamique (à défaut d'être très original), ça me plaît bien comme combo. :kiss:

Moi c'est pas forcément mon style mais après deux trois écoutes intégrales y'a de bons petits riffs et Floor semble beaucoup plus à l'aise que sur le dernier Nightwish! :metalbeer:

Monsieur Foule Fête
Encore une très belle chro :god: :love: :love: :love: :clap: :ch:
Cependant!
Oui! La distinction entre fans d'AF et Nightwish ère 3.0 est à faire!
Pour sa perf la plus accomplie y'a un grand débat! Va t on préféré sa perf vocale quasi parfaite de ce Northward ou, une performance naïve tout en émotion et puissance d'un Prison of Desire d'AF? Pour ma part, j'opterai pour la seconde option!

Je mets le lien de la chro, pour savoir de quoi on parle :D :http://www.leseternels.net/chronique.aspx?id=18066

C'est une petite provoc le coup de "la meilleure perf de Floor" sur cet album, tu l'auras compris : ses fans de longue date l'ont connue et appréciée sur un registre plus lyrique, ce serait étonnant qu'ils soient aussi enthousiastes que moi quand elle chante du hard rock. :lol: Cependant, je ne retire rien, c'est vraiment ce que je pense. Floor est faite, aussi, pour chanter comme ça. Elle est sidérante.
