Norther have made their new single 'Break Myself Away' available for free download via this location:
'Break Myself Away' is the first new song to feature Aleksi Sihvonen (who took the place of Petri Lindroos in early 2009) on vocals and Daniel Freyberg on guitar.
It's alright... it doesn't really do anything for me. I could even go as far to say that the chorus is downright boring.
The chorus is too poppy. Otherwise quite decent, Petri is irreplaceable though
it's better than I expected, but only because I was actually expecting this to totally suck. It's an ok song for what it is, but Sihvonen just doesn't sound good nor powerful in the vocal department. This band died when Petri left and although I'll still look into their future album, I'm going into it with zero expectations.
Daniel and Heikki should really focus on Naildown, the old Norther squad should start a new project, and Sihvonen should learn to play guitar or something because he is just not good in handling vocals.
Norther was never any good. Poor man's Finnish metal
holy shit its eakflanhfrudiersf
Digging: Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements
Chorus is terrible but the rest of the song was a big step up from their last album.
Digging: Leprous - Tall Poppy Syndrome
Nope, doesn't do it for me. I dig the keys at various points though...not enough to redeem in my opinion though.
