Two guys form Northern Breeze, namely Kris G. (guitars, vocals) and Vag K. (lead guitars, bass). Since it's not specified, perhaps they are using a drum machine. Lasting a little over 30 minutes, Sailing to the North is not properly speaking a Viking/epic opus, although track #5, Northern Breeze, bears clear signs of that musical direction. Mostly in the fast and furious range of the Black Metal arts, Sailing to the North remains very melodic with some more delicate parts incorporated in their musical structure. Cleaner guitar passages, mainly played in arpeggios with leads are found scattered on the disc. Examples of this are found on songs like: Legacy of Hatred, Delightful Limbo and Father of All Times. Since I've been listening for music seriously for decades, I enjoy hearing something different, and that's what I got on track 2, Dream Valley. On this cool number, you can hear a nice duo made of classical guitars and a trumpet (keyboards?), between the fast Black Metal mode and a mid-paced crushing one. Sailing to the North goes by fairly quickly, bringing down your hearing equipment quite easily.
