Zu einem neuen Album gehört bei uns selbstverständlich auch eine zünftige Releaseshow!
Die wird es geben, und zwar exakt am Veröffentlichungstag am 01.07. im Lemmy's in Bad Friedrichshall. Als Special Guest werden euch unsere Kumpels von Out Of Order kräftig einheizen! Da schließt sich ein Kreis, zumal es wirklich Ewigkeiten her ist, dass wir gemeinsam gezockt haben. Es wurde also höchste Zeit, dass in dieser Richtung mal wieder etwas passiert.
Im Anschluss steigt eine ordentliche Metalparty mit Musik aus der Dose und hoffentlich vielen kalten Getränken, das Ende ist also ziemlich offen.
Da die Zuschaueranzahl im Lemmy's begrenzt ist, wird es Tickets im VVK geben. Es empfiehlt sich also rechtzeitig zuzuschlagen, falls ihr definitiv vorhabt zu kommen. Die restlichen Karten sind selbstverständlich an der Abendkasse erhältlich.
Unser Album wird natürlich am Merchstand erhältlich sein und wenn alles klappt, gibt es auch neue Shirts und Zipper für euch.
Wir würden uns freuen gemeinsam mit euch zu feiern und wir werden auch viele Songs im Programm haben, die wir lange nicht mehr oder gar noch nie gespielt haben.
Infos zum Ticket-VVK folgen kurzfristig.
Was bleibt zu sagen? SPREAD THE WORD!
LANFEAR "The Code Inherited" - Cover, Tracklist, releasedate: 01st July 2016
The release date of the LANFAIR album „The Code Inherited“ on CD is July 01st, 2016. The pre-order phase will start on June 17, 2016 in our webshop.
Four years after „This Harmonic Consonance“ the unique LANFEAR come up with their new album „The Code Inherited“. Once again they mix their Metal with lots of power and melody. A monolithic album with an exceptional singer (Nuno Miguel de Barros Fernandes) and sublime songwriting, led by mastermind/guitarist Markus „Ulle“ Ullrich. Outstanding tracks as „Converging Saints“ and „Evidence Based Ignorance“ are in the classical LANFEAR style while the band undoubtedly is also influenced by proggresive and sophisticated genres. Powerful songs as „The Delusionist“ are on an international level and NEVERMORE or COMMUNIC would have loved to present material like that in their harmonic days.
One of the most melodic tracks on the album is „The Opaque Hourglass“. With the piano driven chorus this will surely be a fave amongst the fans. The terrific „Self-Assembled“ starts almost gently until fat guitar riffs blend in and the whole song explodes and becomes very heavy.
As a bonus and just for the fun of it LANFEAR present their very own Bryan Adams song with „Summer of 89“. Sounds like ECLIPSE would play it and the lyrics deal with the times you never experienced, the days before your birth and long before your first f###. Incredible!

10-08-2014 - Gig in Bremen
01-07-2014 - New gig announced
In 2004 we played @ the Meisenfrei, Bremen, together with our buddies in Eternal Reign . We all had a blast (and lots of alcohol)!
This was unbelievable ten (!) years ago, though it really feels like yesterday.
You're right! We're old farts.
It's really good to know that Eternal Reign are even older, hehe
Screw it! Time for another turn!

23-02-2014 - LANFEAR 1994 download for free
In spring 1994, about 5-6 months after we founded the band, we recorded our one and only official demo. It was released in summer the same year. The sound was and is far from perfect since we didn’t really know what to do and there’re timing problems and mistakes all over the place, hehe.
Still, it was time to digitalize our first born.
Sadly the original DAT somehow got lost and I had to use one of the duplicated tapes. At least I found a copy which had never been played so I think this is the best you can get.
There are two songs on the tape which never found its way on an album so this might be interesting for some of you guys. As I told you, the sound quality, playing and singing is …uhm…yes, but hey, we were so young :)
You can download the 320 kBit/s tracks for free in our MP3 shop .
24-01-2014 - The 1996 LANFEAR debut "Towers" - official digital release and the story behind
Today it’s been 18 years (!) that we self-released our debut album “Towers”.
Back in the days it wasn’t that common to do an album without any financial support from a label.
Most bands recorded demo tapes and hoped to somehow get signed.
After we recorded our demo in 1994 and some very positive reviews we decided to try it. We were totally inexperienced, very young and it was our first time in a professional studio (hi Andy!). We took out a loan and invested an enormous amount to record these nine songs which became our debut album. In 1995 this wasn’t as “cheap” as almost 20 years later. Regardless, we had a blast and I really don’t want to miss a thing. Those were the days.
We pressed 500 copies, sent them out to some zines and received fantastic reviews. There was no distribution at all and of course no internet. The people read a review, sent us cash and we sent them a CD. They wrote us back, wanted autographs, sent us paintings of our logo, handicrafts et cetera. We received handwritten interview questions and we gave them our also handwritten answers. We’re still in contact with some of these guys today and that’s something I’m really proud of! THIS, ladies and gentlemen, to me is METAL!
Within months the album was sold out so we pressed another 500 copies which some months later also had been sold.
There were some label offers but nothing really serious. Urwerk Records provided us a deal and wanted to officially release the album with the option of financing a second one. They re-released “Towers” as “The Towers of February” (the title of our 15 min. longtrack on the album) and with a different cover artwork. I really have no clue how many copies they pressed but what I know is that we never saw any money and all they did was talking shit. The first time we really experienced what music business means. Not the last time, I can assure you!
The original “Towers” (we fondly call it “the green one”) nowadays is extremely rare, almost impossible to find and if you’re lucky enough locate a copy, it is way too expensive! Even the re-release is not that easy to get. Of course the production isn’t up to date (Gen even played on e-drums to save some money), we weren’t the best musicians and it sounds so far away when I listen to the album today. In fact I listen to it right now for the first time in maybe 10 years. Some very good ideas and nice melodies.
We decided to NEVER re-release the album. There will be no remix, no remaster, no bonus CD or demo collection – nothing! However, we thought it would be nice to have an official digital release for the fans who don’t know our old stuff and want to have a listen.
“Towers” now is available on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Musicload and all common stores at a special price. In some stores it takes up to 4 weeks until everything is online but you should find it almost everywhere on short notice (Spotify, WiMP et cetera.).
I ripped the wave files with a professional tool from my almost new original CD so you won’t find it in better quality. Don’t know which store sells which files but I’m sure some of them also have lossless files available.
Of course you can’t compare “Towers” with our latest releases but maybe some of you want to go on a journey through time when some things were better and some not :)
