So does anyone else think that "N" epicly sucks? Man I just listened to it for the first time... slow, boring, uninspired... I mean, it's not that awful I guess, but it really really pales in comparison to any of their other albums. I don't like how the screams have gotten lower and lower pitched over time.
Oh well, guess it doesn't matter now that they have a new singer

I agree with you, compared to their earlier stuff, this just doesn't even hold a candle to it. Death Unlimited is my favorite, and I've been waiting for them to put out an album that can at least compare to that.

Yeah, again I'll point out that I really think the vocals have gotten lower. Does anyone know why they decided to have the screams a bit lower? If you listen to "Mirror of Madness" or "Death Unlimited," the screams are much higher and "blackish" than they are on say "N" or "Til Death Unites Us." I really thought the higher pitched screams fit the music better.

And I agree with you on "Death Unlimited" being a great album. "Death Unlimited" and "Fallen Star" are two of my favorite Norther songs

He just may not have been able to scream that high anymore. I'm sure years of screaming that high have to have some sort of effect on your voice. So it may have been more of a neccesity than a choice, but that's just my opinion. I think that's probably why Kalmah did it too.

You know, I forgot he sung on the last Ensiferum album didnt he? If that's the case, maybe it was a choice to sing lower, because I don't remember his voice being that low on the last Ensiferum album. Hmmmm, interesting, guess we'll all have to wait and see.

Did ever turn out to be true that Wintersun's vocalist was going to be the new Norther singer?

I'm sorry, but higher screams beat lower screams any day of the week =D

No, that was just an APril fools joke. Wintersun is still all in one piece, the only thing new with them is that they probably won't release a new album within the next century.

It depends for me, I enjoy both high and low screams.

I figured that that "news" sounded a bit weird. Yeah, I agree with you on the Wintersun album thing! I may be dead before I get to hear it... how unfortunate.

Hey, I have a band for you you might really enjoy:
Throes of Dawn.
If you are interested here are a couple youtube links...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tjh4-Kyn1Kk
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e82GbZDPGMM

Both are off of their "Quicksilver Clouds" album... arguably in my opinion the best release of 2004 (yes I realize how bold of a statement that is!)

Here is the whole (!) show then the guys played in Muscow, Russia. http://www.youtube.com/user/neuroastr#grid/user/19D35BFFD11472F1
Aleksi vocals fits really good to all songs imo. Hope he will do the high screams on the next album.

Wonder how the uploader did get this song. Well anyway the song was pretty ok. Remind me of the sound they have on "Till Death Unites Us" and Aleksi shouldnt do the clean vocals.. It doesnt sound that good

I fuckin' love this band.
Two albums in my collection, Mirror of Madness and Dreams of Endless War. At first I was like, whoa ... Bodom? Then I was like nah, it's something else.
Both albums are very nice. Tracks I like are, Released, Final Countdown, Blackhearted and Frozen Angel.

Time to wake this thread up!

What do you think of the new album? I know, there is a topic of it's own for this matter.

Now follows somewhat shameless promotion, but it relates to Norther!

Have you guys checked out Aleksi's other band, Medicated? The band's website: http://www.medicatedband.com/
The new EP features also a guitar solo by Daniel in the song Ways to Make You Fall.

Check out if ya haven't and tell us what you like!
How does the music compare to Norther, for example.

By far their best and probably in my top 5 albums list of all time, actually. That album means so much to me, never get tired of it.

But I came to this thread just to do some traditional complaining. Come to Sweden and play someday, you damn bastard whores!
