From The Land Of Melodic Rock, Rises A Band With A Story To Tell…
Land of Tales is a brand new band masterminded by two guys, Kristian (vocals and guitar) and Palle (keyboards). They have been playing together for fifteen years in a band called Naiskala. However all the time, there has been a constant urge to make more adult oriented rock music, sung in English.
Kristian began writing songs in November 2006 while Petri Lahtinen and Mika Mäkiranta wrote the lyrics. After uploading them to their Myspace page, they got a fabulous response from all over the world. International fan clubs have been already founded in Germany and overseas. Land of Tales therefore started shopping their music around, until they caught the interest of Frontiers Records in the fall of 2007. The Land of Tales sound is an equal union of keyboards and guitar, crafted with catchy melodies and big choruses. The result is a somewhat original and peculiar approach to songwriting and music that makes them stand apart from many other bands of the Melodic Rock genre.
In the summer of 2007, long time musical friends Sami Rajala (Bass) and Sami Ojala (Drums) joined the band during the recording sessions for the album. Land of Tales are now geared up to take the Melodic Rock world by storm. Get ready for their exciting slice of class, melodies and rock! According to Kristian, "The new album sounds exactly how we wanted it to sound. I think that the production sounds like classic stadium rock but still fresh. It is great that people can finally hear Land of Tales’ melodic songs."
