The history of NORTHER dates back to the year 1996 when Petri Lindroos (who also joined ENSIFERUM as lead vocalist/guitarist in 2004) and some friends started playing together under the moniker REQUIEM. In 2000 Kristian Ranta (guitar) stepped in and the band released its first demo. It subsequently led to a deal with Spinefarm Records and it did not take long for the guys to find Jukka Koskinen (bass, also in WINTERSUN) and Tuomas Planman (keyboards) to finally create a stable lineup for NORTHER. Within a few years NORTHER became one of the most promising Finnish bands combining the best of death, black and thrash metal with haunting melodies. The albums "Dreams of Endless War" (2002), "Mirror of Madness" (2003, licensed by Century Media Records for U.S. release), "Death Unlimited" (2004) and "Till Death Unites Us" (2006) helped to gather a worldwide fan base.

In 2007, NORTHER left Spinefarm Records to release the "No Way Back" EP, which entered the Finnish charts at #1 and marked the debut for drum talent Heikki Saari. Summer 2007 was highlighted by a successful Wacken Open Air show, followed by an European headliner club tour in October and further progress on completing their new album.

NORTHER lineup:

Kristian Ranta: Guitars, Clean Vocals
Petri Lindroos: Guitars, Vocals
Jukka Koskinen: Bass
Tuomas Planman: Keyboards
Heikki Saari: Drums

Welp, with song titles like that, I definitely won't be picking this up.

Their lyrics have been getting worse over time anyway. I used to really like them. Screw this band.

I'll stick to Kalmah

I have been listening to the last work of norther, and its going pretty good finally they have found a own sound. most of the people says they're a copy of bodom, i believe those guys are too close minded, that they believe that bodom is god, think on imperanon or others bands that belong to see same genre, i like this new album and im gonna get it when it comes. if you dont like norther or the album dont post shit here
