Jeffrey Garcia

Bass

Born in Murcia, Jeffrey showed interest for metal music when he was just a teenager. At first he started playing guitar because he saw his brother doing so, but after hearing the band Korn for the first time he decided to rock that bass. His start with Norwald was a before and after in his life, as it was the first serious project in which he wanted to get involved.

Patri Grief

Lead Guitar

Born in January the 27th, she always devoted her life to music, composing simple songs at a very young age. She asked for her first guitar at the age of 5, and it finally came a couple of years later, in hands of one of her relatives. As a teenager, having some issues making friends would make her have enough time to create the first version of the Norwald world. Some characters, places and beasts would be the initial point of the vast new realm where the stories and songs take place.

Alejandro Leonidas

Rhythm Guitar

Alex was born in a small town of Murcia, and played the clarinet for seven years at a music school. When he first heard Iron Maiden he went crazy for the bass and later on, when he was 13 years old, he started playing electric guitar as well. Sharing the same guitar teacher as Patri, they started to talk, so he could record some choirs for the CD. He really loved the style and the ambience and that's why he joined as the rhythm guitarist and second singer.

Caroline Phoenix

singer

Caroline has been singing all her life, and began formal vocal training at age 15 under the instruction of a professional Opera and Musical Theatre coach. She first joined Norwald in it's earliest stages in October 2012 while studying in Murcia on foreign exchange. She and Patri spent much of 2013 playing music together and developing a strong bond as musicians, collaborators, and friends. Caroline returned to her home in California to attend university where she focused on her original artistic passion, Musical Theatre. This broadened her vocal abilities, movement skills, and stage presence. In 2018 she completed a Bachelor's of Arts and was then free to focus more on music, eventually rejoining Norwald in 2019.

Frehul Martinez

Keyboard

Born in Madrid during the nineties, he felt an incomparable pleaure listening to music since he was even a toddler. It wouldn't be until the age of 18 that he listened to his first symphonic metal band. While on a long stay in London he saw and bought his first keyboard. Norwald drawed his attention and he joined the band soon after meeting the members.

David the Breaker

Drums

Born on January 15th 1991 in Murcia, David has shown interest in metal music since his teenage years. Being such a big fan of Metallica and System of a Down, the rhythm of their songs made him start thinking about learning how to play the drums. At the age of 16 years old he started his training towards becoming a drummer, getting his first lesson at the music school of his hometown. Later on he didn't stop practicing, getting involved in different musical projects and events, until Alejandro Leonidas, old friend of his, asked him to join the band as the last member to form the solid line-up that Norwald now has.

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.
Since January of 2020, Norwald counts the voice of Caroline “Phoenix” among their ranks, who travels from California to Spain to participate in Norwald’s latest gigs and upcoming tour.
