+FRONTIERS ANNOUNCES THE SIGNING OF LANDFALL
+BRAZILIAN ACT JOINS THE LABEL'S GROWING ROSTER
+NEW ALBUM PLANNED FOR RELEASE IN 2020

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Brazil's Landfall. Hailing from Curitiba, the band features former Auras singer Gui Oliver - a true dead ringer for the legendary Steve Perry - Landfall's sound can be described as falling between classic melodic rock a là Journey with some slightly heavier influences, such as classic era Dokken, White Lion, and Extreme.

“I’m really glad to be back with Frontiers with a new band and new songs in a new perspective. I believe this is my best album so far. I was really impressed when I met the band for the first time. They are truly amazing, gifted and very prepared to do this with me,” says Gui Oliver.

Landfall was originally started by drummer Felipe Souzza and guitarist Marcelo Gelbcke, who are childhood friends and have been playing together since they were about 15 years old. Some years later, bassist Thiago Forbeci joined up with them, adding new musical input and influences and the band decided to go in a new direction. They began writing their songs and creating their own music repertoire to work off of and it was during this period that they recorded a few albums together and performed several concerts around Brazil, including opening for acts like Glenn Hughes and Mike Vescera.

Joining forces together, Gui, Felipe, Marcelo and Thiago created Landfall (formerly known as W.I.L.D.), a blend of hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR.

From Frontiers:

Landfall, a Brazilian melodic rock band, have announced they will release their debut album, "The Turning Point" via Frontiers. Hailing from Curitiba, Brazil, Landfall's sound can be described as falling between classic melodic rock a là Journey with some slightly heavier influences, such as classic era Dokken, White Lion, and Extreme. The band, of course, is more than the sum of their influences and brings in elements of progressive and hard rock to their melodic rock delivery to create a truly delightful sound punctuated by a singer with a voice that matches perfectly (and powerfully) with the music.  

“I should say ‘The Turning Point’ means a lot more than just the album name. Signing with Frontiers is a great example of a real turning point for us in terms of our careers and lives. About the album, the concept was built based on the urban elements of a big city, the urban jungle, the downtown. It drives the listener through these city elements and modern urban themes. All the songs are connected to this universe. Hope you enjoy the ride!“ says Felipe Souzza. 

 “I’m really glad to be back with Frontiers with a new band and new songs in a new perspective. I believe this is my best album so far. I was really impressed when I met the band for the first time. They are truly amazing, gifted and very prepared to do this with me,” says Gui Oliver.

Some years later, bassist Thiago Forbeci joined up with them, adding new musical input and influences and thus the band decided to go in a new musical direction. They began writing songs, creating their own music repertoire to work off of, and it was during this period that they recorded a few albums together and performed several concerts around Brazil, including opening for acts like Glenn Hughes and Mike Vescera. The guys later joined up with Gui and created Landfall and commenced to work on their magnificent blend of hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR for their upcoming debut album.

Ok, that's a killer song in my book.  Driving guitar and the vocals are very good. The solo passage was almost orgasm inducing. 

I'd go so far as to say this is the best song I've heard this year.

The album dropped today on Spotify. Solid stuff, nothing earth shattering. I like the production and sound.

That's kind of how it ends up for me, but I must admit there were a few moments on this one where I thought it might contend for album of the year honours, seriously. 

'No way out' is easily one of the best songs of the year and when it hit my ears as the second song of this album I just thought I was in heaven. 

 

Overall, though, the album hovers around the solid - good and sometimes very good range... but only gets exceptional one more time with this song;

 

'Sound of the city' (as above) is a killer closer too. 

A hell of a lot of potential on this album, and I'd love to hear a more consistent follow-up for sure.
