Northern Kings are a Finnish symphonic metal cover supergroup, made up of four musicians who have already become well known in their existing bands: Jarkko Ahola (from Teräsbetoni and formerly from Dreamtale), Marco Hietala (from Nightwish and Tarot), Tony Kakko (from Sonata Arctica) and Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto (from Charon).
Their first single, "We Don't Need Another Hero", (originally performed by Tina Turner) was released in 2007, followed by their debut album Reborn. In late 2008, their second album Rethroned was released, headlined by the single "Kiss from a Rose" (originally performed by Seal).
Kakko and Hietala are already planning the next album. Ahola and Leppäluoto are going to join the planning sometime in the summer of 2009.
