NORWALD releases long awaited “THE ISLAND OF AIRLEVAN”

Spanish Power Metal band NORWALD releases long awaited “THE ISLAND OF AIRLEVAN” Single and Video of upcoming EP with SODEH Records.

“The Island of Airlevan” is the first single of Norwald’s upcoming EP “The Spark of Freedom”. It tells the context of the legendary tale: Rak tournaments will determine who will rule over the island where the contest takes place. The song mixes two very different styles: power metal riffs and melodic vocal lines to create a happy atmosphere and a more extreme (death/black metal) style to show the chaos that contradicts these first parts. The song uses these more extreme styles and harmonic minor scales when it talks about the tyrant, whereas it uses the happier power metal style to talk about the general appearance of the island.

Airlevan is well-known for the happiness that surrounds the place, but it contains a dark side: a secret tyranny is getting set, held by the current and undefeated leader, who will use the powers of darkness of his rak to alienate the minds of the inhabitants of the island.

“This song, as well as the rest of the album, marks a before and after on the band. This EP will open the gates towards a more complex way of storytelling” says Patri Grief, Norwald’s axe wielder.

Biography

Norwald is a symphonic power metal band based in Spain, that plunges the listener in the vast homonym fantasy world, “Norwald”. Formed in 2018, Norwald started recording their first album: “Madness and Heroes”. 

Working with Déhà AMSG (Opus Magnum Studio, Belgium) and Hk Krauss (Vamacara Studio, France), the band finished their second album “The Spark of Freedom” to be released on January 27th under SODEH Records. Mixing in elements from power, symphonic, epic, black and death metal this second concept album conveys a tale of an island tyrant in power and battles of good and evil, heroes and foes. “The Spark of Freedom” will also be released as a 200+ page paperback novel as well. “The Spark of Freedom” European tour is scheduled for 2023 with the Dioses del Metal Fest already confirmed.

The band’s relentless shows and loyal fanbase has led them to endorsements  and/or collaborations with brands such as Bodegas Valhalla, El Taller de Yzcoa, Cables Uro and Púas Jimy.

“The sound of guitars and drums pierce through your chest without any pity… is the perfect example of all these shades of vocal spins and extremely fast rhythms and exquisite melodies harmonized with superhuman taste, which was something that kept the audience headbanging, moshing and dancing nonstop.”  –  Metal Korner

“It’s been years since I’ve been following Celtibeerian, and without doubt, Norwald are one of the best opening acts they’ve had. The band from Murcia kept going with songs such as “The Madness of the King”, “Ruins of a Kingdom” and “Awaking the Beast”, and I can assure you the energy they carry is amazing. I’ve never seen a band that connects with all of their audience that fast.” – Álvaro Carlier – Metal Hammer Spain

“Extraordinary show and coordination on stage” – Jose “Chimpa” Sánchez – Diario de un Metalhead

“Excellent job on keyboards. I love how they treated the keys, with authentically dazzling moments.” – Larry Runner – Diario de un Metalhead
