Note : Le groupe est réellement né en 2007. Une partie des membres jouaient dans Everfrost (groupe lui bien fondé en 2004) & ont quitté cette formation pour créer Northland quelques années après (2007).
Northland has its roots in Badalona in 2004 when Pau Murillo founded a viking/melodic death metal band with a few friends of him. The band broke up due to personal problems of the members.
After a short time, Pau joined another band and suggested to give the band a more death/folk orientation. The band agreed and Pau became the leader of the band and composed themes and lyrics for it.
A long time after that, the band was disolved unanimously owning to problems between the members of the band but Pau announced that he would go on with his music.
Pau wanted to set up a new band and turned to some of the members from his old bands, so the new lineup included: Pau (guitar & lead vocals), Cristian (drums), Jonathan (keyboards) and Sergi (guitar).
The band though about their future and every member cotributed with diferent ideas. In the end they decided to search for a violinist, because it would make their music sound more melodic and nearer to folk and Guzmán joined the band.
The band was looking for a bassist since their begining unsuccessfully, until Eric Vila, a friend of Pau, decided to join Northland.
Cristian had to leave the band due to personal reasons and was quickly replaced by Dani, the current Northland drummer.
With this new formation, the band made itself known by playing in many festivals such as Kanya!!! (Barcelona), Death over Christmas Fest (Vigo) and other small concert halls in Barcelona and its environs.
They edited their first demo “Freezing sadness”, which was very well recieved within their audience.
Sergi, Guzmán and Eric left the band due to personal affairs.
Pau M. and Dani went on with the band and found new musicians, which could fill the gap left by their old mates. The new and current members are: Pol (keyboards), Pau (violin), Alex (guitar) and Yoli (bass). They arrived just in time to play in the last two concerts of the band: Kanya!!! A la Capsa (Prat del Llobregat) and as support band for Norther in Mephisto (Barcelona).
At present the band is working hard getting ready for their upcoming concerts, composing new songs and thinking already about the studio album, which will hopefully come out around April 2009.
