Music Monday: Northern Kings

There are supergroups, and then there are supergroups.

Instead of creating a 12-strong bunch of celebrities, the Northern Kings opted for just four amazing vocalists in the forefront, supported by session musicians. Enter Marco Hietala (Nightwish, Tarot), Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica), Jarkko Ahola (Teräsbetoni) and Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto (Charon, Harmaja).

The fact that their two albums only contain cover songs, and those mostly from way outside the metal genre is not a problem; on the contrary, it’s the source of mad props to whoever did the arrangements. Some of them just have to be heard to be believed.
