STRANGE LAND
'ROUGH MIXES FROM ANOMALY'
(DEMO CDR)

'Anomaly' will be the title of the full-length debut CD of the Milwaukee settled progressive hard rock/metal band STRANGE LAND. This CDR contains rough mixes of 3 tracks that will probably end up on the band's first album. "Not for this world" and "Nothinghead" are both very progressive and also quite heavy in approach, nevertheless they sound very professional and should gain them a position up there with other progressive metal acts. The third song on the other hand is the best song on offer here. The song is called "All things considered" and this is a great progressive melodic rocker with a stunning chorus that combines perfect melodic vocals and harmonies. Some more of these catchy progressive tunes and this STRANGE LAND may be counted as one of the latest sensations from the USA. I look forward to their debut CD, in the meantime, for more info, visit their site at: http://www.strange-land.net and e-mail them at: strange-land@apexmail.com
