Biography

(2000 – present)

French symphonic power metal band created by Philippe Giordana and Willdric Lievin in 2000. They chose Elisa C. Martin (ex-Dark Moor, Dreamaker) for the vocals. In 2003, Willdric and Elisa left to create a new band (Hamka), so they picked Max Leclercq (Magic Kingdom) as new singer.

Following the release of their first demo, Tribute to Universe, their basic metal style began evolving into something more fantastic and symphonic, to which their second demo, Realm of Wonders, attests.
Through various metal contacts the band enlisted guitarist Anthony Parker (Heavenly) and soon gave up looking for a label to enter Wizard Studio in Feb. 2002.

During the recordings of their debut, the band began looking for a powerful vocalist, which they found in Elisa C. Martin, known from the successful Spanish Power Metal band DARK MOOR.
With their first full-length complete, FAIRYLAND signed on with Denmark-based Intromental Management, and shortly thereafter secured a recording contract with the French label N.T.S. (now Replica Records).
Of Wars in Osyrhia was released worldwide in April 2003, enjoying massive promotion from both their record label and management. The great response from both media and fans enabled the band to tour with Sonata Arctica in France, as well as to perform in the renowned Sweden Rock Festival in 2003.
Internal band problems led to both Willdric Lievin and Elisa C. Martin, leaving the band. The band continued on without them to finish the recordings for the new concept album Fall of an Empire—again composed by Philippe Giordana and Anthony Parker, who had gathered a new line-up comprised of vocalist Max Leclerqc (formerly of Magic Kingdom), drummer Pierre-Emmanuel “Piwee” Desfray, and bassist Thomas “Tom” Cesario.

    I don't get why some people tag this as "gothic rock" and "industrial metal".

    Phil is working on a new album since the beginning of 2013. I am pretty sure there will be a new record in late 2013/early 2014. :)

    Thank you for replying Phil. I'll see what I can find on You Tube and then purchase the digital tracks where I can find them. I apologize for my rant, I shouldn't have wrote that in a shout box.

    LFM says I'm in charge of the page, so I'll retract some of what I said earlier. Still no bloody idea how to make tracks available, though...

    Also, I never created this LFM page in the first place, so I have no admin rights on it.

    CrybKeeper: I know it sucks, but it seems I'm not the one who decides what tracks are available. I write the music, record it, release it on CD, and then some third parties take over. Plenty of Fairyland tracks are available on youtube, and rest assured I'm the first to share the songs when I can. TL;DR: I don't have any control on this page and what tracks are shared. Phil Giordana, Fairyland

    Not every artist knows about LFM either.

    ANY music artist, that doesn't offer at least a couple streamable tracks, is out of touch with their fan base : ( What if I live in a country with heavy restrictions and only have access to a globally licensed music site, such as LastFM? I cannot access iTunes or Amazon or Spotify. Only have Lastfm! Where are my samples? Where is the show of appreciation? Where is the humility from the band? As a music publicist, I can safely say, " hiding ALL of your tracks but one, is NOT a great way to communicate to fans!
