Biography

There are more bands using this name, see below for clarification. Please note that Strange Land is NOT a Christian/White metal band. These tags are incorrectly applied to this band.

“Strange Land are a three piece who certainly like to make a lot of noise with their cerebral progressive rock/metal … well, I said noise? Yes, but I meant it in a good way, as the Wisconsin-based band pays a lot of attention also to melody, not only to the complexity of guitar riffs.” - Igor Italiani, progressiveworld.net

As with many original bands the sound of Strange Land is difficult to describe. In the most generic sense the band falls into the progressive rock/metal category, along with such bands as Fates Warning, Queensryche, Savatage, Rush, Zero Hour, Pain of Salvation, and Galactic Cowboys. Strange Land, however, prefers not to wear its influences on its sleeve. Rather, the members blend all of their past musical experiences and outside musical influences into one unique musical vision. Each member of Strange Land takes an equal part in the writing and arranging of its music, and the project continues to evolve through changes in membership, making Strange Land as much a living idea as it is a band.

Strange Land was established in November of 1998 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Within the first six months of its existence, the band had written and arranged eleven original songs.
