Best Cover Songs by Northern KingsMetal_Treasure Northern Kings are a Finnish metal cover supergroup, made up of four singers you probably already know:
Jarkko Ahola (Teräsbetoni, Ahola)
Marco Hietala (Nightwish, Tarot)
Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica)
Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto (Charon, Harmaja).
They released two albums - in 2007 and 2008. Most of their covers use symphonic metal style but not only. These guys were really very creative - their new arrangements changed significantly the originals but I like most of these changes. They turned fast songs into slow songs and vice versa.

Billy Idol cover. Vox and new arrangement - Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto.
