Northwind-Mythology (No Remorse)

27 Feb

Northwind- mythology

Northwind was a Greek heavy metal band from Thessaloniki. They were formed in 1981 and their first album, “Northcomin’”, was released back in 1982 by Polygram Records.The band released “Mythology” in 1987 by the Greek subsidiary of EMI Records. “Mythology” for me is just one of the best heavy metal albums of all times!!

There are some tunes that can’t be written today… The song writing of Northwind is really high. “Stop Sisyphus Stop”, “Medea”, “Troy”, “Bad Horizon-Scorpio the Punisher” and above all “Prometheus the Man” are real heavy metal hymns!! This album makes you want to hear it again and again!! The lyrics of the band have to do with the Greek mythology while the cover is really nice! The release contains an 8 page booklet with lyrics, liner notes and photos and is limited ONLY to 500 copies. From what I can hear from the CD the album hasn’t been re-mastered but the sound is good anyway. In conclusion this is a classic heavy metal album and the fans of traditional metal should buy it before this release is sold out!
