Biography

There are multiple artists with this name:

1) Land is a French dark ambient/martial industrial project whose activities are spread over a large period of time with some moments of hibernation for various purposes. Beginning in 1988 with different line-ups through the years, Land has released numerous tapes from 1990 till 1995.

Next and final planned releases for the Land 3rd period are the “Célestine Orlac” serial (3 episodes) and a document on the french actress Véra Sergine. It is a trilogy began in 2003 with the 10” EP “Praha”. In 2005 it appeared the second part, “Wien”, and “Budapest”, third act, completes in 2007 this masterpiece of Dark Ambient located in the Europe of 1924.
Other Works like “Opuscule” (2002, Divine Records) or “Idi l simotri” (2002, Eis und Licht) reveals an intense and deep study of the musical possibilities to express the ideas of the band members. A very interesting and complete view of the development of the band is offered in the compilation “Land. 1988-1997”, where the music reflects the influences of 80’s Dark Wave, Early Industrial and Dark ambient.

    I must be the only one who is hooked on the Italian Land, and the only one who's frustrated that I can't find the rest of their EPs (besides Somewhere and No Time) anywhere.

    The Célestine Orlac trilogy is some of the most mesmerizing music to be found anywhere.

    Any recommendations based on Land are welcome. The similar artists are somewhat... lacking.

    yeah, I've been wondering that, too. only greinke's land and other projects are represented now in the pics, no sign of the french martial/dark ambient project.

    Opuscule is amazing. Pilon sounds like it was made by an ambient-industrial Blut aus Nord.

    I'm surprised that only some people know the essence of the French project. Oh well.

    Opuscule is nothing short of a masterpiece of melancholic music.

    The Célestine Orlac trilogy is an impressive achievement. Refined and melancholic like very few other martial industrial/neoclassical releases.

    More people need to be indoctrinated to the dark soundscape created by Land.
