Bill Hudson: «Christian Eriksson was let go from his duties».

I går slapp Christian Eriksson bomben om at han var ferdig som vokalist i NorthTale. Grunnen var, i følge Eriksson, musikalske uenigheter, men som alltid har en historie to sider. Nå forteller gitarist og grunnlegger Bill Hudson sin side.

«Musikalske uenigheter» er i følge Hudson en medvirkende årsak til bruddet, men det var flere hendelser over lengre tid som til slutt gjorde at gitaristen fikk nok.

“Musical differences” seem to be the go-to reason you read on statements when bands part ways with members. This does apply to this situation, although it is just the tip of the iceberg. We have dealt with several issues from the beginning, just like with every band, but we’ve been able to work through most of it rather smoothly.

PowerMetal.no vet at Hudson og Eriksson har vært i klammeri ved flere anledninger, og at spesielt ved opptakten til bandets andre studioalbum ble klimaet såpass dårlig at samarbeidet ikke stod til å redde. 

However, when the time came for the writing of the new album, it became clear that Christian and I did not want the same thing, and were no longer seeing eye to eye on basically anything. Several attempts were made to mend the situation, but at the end of the day, we could not reach an agreement.

Eriksson fikk sparken fra bandet allerede i februar, og siden den gang har flere vokalister vært inne til audition. Nå gjenstår det kun to kandidater, og PowerMetal.no kan skrive under på at bandets videre framtid er i trygge hender hvis valget faller på en av disse to.

Christian was let go from his duties from the band back in February. Since then, we have kept quiet about the matter, while auditioning some of the best vocalists in the world, hoping to find a suitable replacement before having to drop the bomb on the fans. This process is now nearing its completion and we are down to my favorite 2 candidates, both of which are amazing vocalists with solid careers in the genre.

Bill Hudson takker Eriksson for jobben som ble gjort, og kan samtidig melde at NorthTales andre studioalbum nærmer seg slutten.

As for the rest of us, the writing for the new album is about 70% done and we should be starting pre production in the next couple of weeks. I can truly say some of the best music I’ve ever done in my career and I can’t wait to get in the studio to record it!
