Norther  


Norther was one of several Finnish bands often burdened with the "Children Of Bodom clone" tag. The similarities between the two bands were undeniable (at least in Norther's early days), as both mixed harsh vocals with inventive speed/power metal. Whether Norther was a COB clone, a COB-influenced band, or just a band that happened to sound similar, is subject to debate. The guys themselves probably didn't care one way or another, as they managed a successful career of some sixteen years ranging from their formation in 1996 to their retirement in July 2012.
