Nightwishista tutulta Floor Jansenilta uusi yhtye Northward: debyyttialbumi luvassa myöhemmin tänä vuonna

Kotimaisen sinfonisen metallin lippulaivan Nightwishin laulajana tunnettu Floor Jansen on perustanut uuden hard rockia soittavan yhtyeen nimeltä Northward yhdessä Pagan´s Mindista tutun kitaristin Jørn Viggo Lofstadin kanssa. Yhtye on solminut sopimuksen Nuclear Blast Recordsin kanssa ja debyyttialbumi on luvassa myöhemmin tänä vuonna. Floor Jansen on kertonut tulevasta debyyttialbumista seuraavaa:

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 basic rock sound, with drums, bass, guitar and vocals. Not the heavy layers of keyboards, choirs etc.”.

”We are happy and exited 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 cant wait to show it to you all!”
