Brand new band covering 80s pop classics!
« on: May 09, 2008, 11:44:50 AM »
hey all!

just recieved this in an email from another 80s site, its a press release for band Northern Kings who are putting out a record of 80s covers!

"Northern Kings - Finland’s premier symphonic power metal supergroup - are not your average covers band!  Featuring four operatic male vocalists performing classic tracks in their own unique symphonic rock style which really must be heard to be believed.    The 4 members are all successful frontmen in their own right; singing in a handful of the biggest Finnish metal acts of recent times (Nightwish, Teräsbetoni, Tarot, Sonata Arctica and Charon).    Their new Record ‘Reborn’ is released in the UK on Monday 16th of June and features critically acclaimed awe inspiring covers of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing, Tina Turner’s We Don’t Need Another Hero, Mr.   Mister’s Broken Wings, Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell, David Bowie’s Ashes to Ashes, Jethro Tull’s Fallen on Hard Times, Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer, Electric Light Orchestra’s Don’t Bring Me Down, Phill Collins’ In The Air Tonight, Radiohead’s Creep, Lionel Richie’s  Hello and Dire Straights  Brothers In Arms. "

I looked at some of their songs on YouTube and theyre pretty rockin!

discuss away!!!!!
