- Norther were formed in 1996 by Toni Hallio and Petri Lindroos originally called Requiem. in 2000, Kristian Ranta (guitar) started playing for norther. Kristian knew two brothers, Sebastian and Joakim Ekroos, who joined the band and a demo was recorded. The demo was good enough to land them a deal with Spinefarm Records. Nevertheless, certain things led to the discharging of the Ekroos brothers, so the line-up was once again reduced to a trio. It did not take long for the guys to find Jukka Koskinen and Tuomas Planman to finally create a stable line-up for Norther. And thus, "Dreams of Endless War" was recorded and the Norther warmachine kicked into gear. In 2005 tony halio left the band to pursue other interests and Heikki Sarri then took his place. Petri left in 2009 to dedicate to Ensiferum and was replaced by Aleksi Sihvonen.

Aleksi Sihvonen adds:
'Sometimes life can take you places you would not even imagine going to. So, here I am and I am very grateful and humbly honoured to be part of the NORTHER family. I feel I have met the band I have always wanted to be in. Like every musician I want to make the very effort to improve my skills as much as possible and push myself to the limits and in NORTHER I feel that I am able to use my voice as full and diverse as I have always wanted to.
I am very excited on working on new material, practicing and playing shows everywhere possible!! See you all soon!!'

Finnish metal band Norther parts ways with long time singer/guitarist Petri Lindroos. Norther was forced to let Petri go to be able to continue. Petri´s full time engagement in Ensiferum increasingly prevented Norther from functioning as an active band.
Petri wishes Norther all the best for the future. Current Norther crew, Kristian, Jukka, Tuomas and Heikki, wants to thank Petri for all these great years together and wishes him the best of luck with Ensiferum.
Additional information concerning the recruitment of a new singer will be provided soon.
