Enter The Vast Fantasy Realm of Spain’s NORWALD With New Singles “Creatures” & “Arden”
Explore the rich lore that has been created through these stories and feel the magic of this imaginative new world, with its own characters, gods and creatures. Norwald, brings you Magical lands and magnificent warriors; Mythical creatures, life, and death, in the form of power metal songs.
To acquaint the world of Norwald, they have released their first two singles, ‘Creatures’ and ‘Arden’. ‘Creatures’regales listeners with the tale of Prince Thostar who is on a quest for the throne. It’s a fast and simple song to introduce both the band and world of Norwald.
‘Arden’ is a bonus tale, not directly related to the rest of the story told on the upcoming concept album. It is fun and dancey, but with a cold vibe.
With influences such as Nightwish, Rhapsody and Epica, Norwald is just as enchanting as the tale it tells. As to what their debut album brings, composer Grief explains her purpose:
“The album is, as a whole, an epic tale that goes through a lot of phases, to finish in an epic song that Norwald people would sing in their taverns. To end the whole thing and to make people want to listen to more of our stories, we play Arden, which is a short tale not related to the tale told in the rest of the album.”
The release date for the debut album is yet to be announced.
Norwald is both the band name and a vast fantasy world that was imagined in the mind of Patri Grief many years ago and has now been brought to fruition to indulge listeners everywhere. Grief’s fascination for storytelling and music began at a young age: she dreamed up a world where her imagination could take flight and ultimately bring her stories to life through music.
With immense imagination, Norwald plunges the listener into a brand new fantasy world. Incorporating made up words and characters set in a medieval era, Norwald is putting a whole new spin on epic power metal. Well written songs, each as a metaphor with its own personality, Norwald is charging in to the spotlight with poetic symphonic magic.
Over the years, members came and left the band and it wasn’t until 2017 when there was enough suitable talent for the band to take off. The lineup now consists of Ann Meseguer (vocals); Patri Grief (composer/lead guitar); Alejandro Leonidas (rhythm guitar); Jeffrey García (bass) and Frehul Martínez (keys).
