It was during the 'All Star Jam' at Progpower USA Festival in 2007, when current NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen and PAGAN'S MIND guitarist Jorn Viggo Lofstad spontaneously joined forces on stage for some cover songs and noticed the creative magic between them. Although the two musicians had never met before, they soon discovered their mutual love for stripped down hard rock and decided to write some songs together. In 2008 still barely knowing each other, they composed an entire album's worth of material in next to no time. But due to their tight schedules with their main bands, their new project named NORTHWARD never found its way into the spotlight - until this day!
In 2017, the year of NIGHTWISH's break, Floor took the opportunity to contact her old friend Jorn Viggo again, to see if he was still interested in resurrecting NORTHWARD - and of course he was!
Stepping free from all boundaries NORTHWARD's sound is strong, euphoric and straight in the tradition of SKUNK ANANSIE, FOO FIGHTERS and ALTER BRIDGE but also older bands such as DEEP PURPLE and LED ZEPPELIN, the music is coming straight to the point and makes no compromises.
