Norwald is a young Symphonic Power Metal band based in Spain that plunges the listeners into the vast fantasy world of «Norwald.» The idea of creating a very deep lore came to lead guitarist and composer, Patri Grief’s, mind back in 2012, which started her journey into musical creation. But it wasn’t until 2018 when the band truly formed a more definitive line-up, recording their first album called “Madness and Heroes”. With this record Norwald truly launches, evolving from an ethereal idea to a solid band. Drawing from Grief’s immense imagination and vision, this album introduces the brand new fantasy world that Norwald is. Incorporating made up worlds, characters, new mythological creatures, and of course magical stories and plots, the album results in an entirely new spin on Epic Power Metal.
The band recorded at Fete Clemente’s studio, with the exception of drums, which were recorded by their guest Joey Marin de Boer at Mantis Audio. To finish the album as a whole, Norwald sent their tracks to Vamacara Studio in France to get the polished and detailed professional result at the hands of Hk Krauss. The final product saw the light on the 17th of December, 2019, receiving attention from listeners all around the globe.
Norwald’s first live appearance was earlier in 2019 at the Battle of the Bands “Forjando Leyendas – del rock” which introduced them to their Spanish manager at Green Comet Music Agency. With these combined forces they began working together to prepare their first Spanish tour between 2019 and 2020. During their concerts, Norwald shows an explosive amount of energy, demonstrated by their inclusion of the audience in their act and nonstop movements around the stage.
Norwald was going on tour during 2020, but due to the pandemic it had to be postponed and organized differently. Towards the end of 2021, the band started going back on stage again, bringing «Madness & Heroes» to a vast audience in multiple relevant cities of Spain.
