Marseille, France based metalcore stars LANDMVRKS are back with a vengeance. After successfully building their reputation through asserting their own style on their masterpiece »Fantasy« (2018), the band returned in 2020 both fresher and heavier than before with their singles ‘Rainfall’, ‘Lost In A Wave‘ & ‘Paralyzed‘.
They launched the pre-orders for their upcoming third album »Lost In The Waves«, their heaviest and most organic album to date with an uncompromising, distinctive style. This is LANDMVRKS in their purest form.
»Lost In The Waves« will be available as CD, limited vinyl in two different colour variants and a limited special fan box on the 19th of March 2021 via Arising Empire. Get your hands on a copy here.

“This life is overrated, I try to find my way back to (you)
You make things complicated

Is this so hard to make it through?”

“They’ve followed up their crashing 2016 Hollow debut with a record that plunges deeper into both big concepts and the dynamic potential of the genre itself.”
“Vocalist Florent Salfati and guitarist Nicolas Exposito manage the jagged, unwieldy shifts between luxuriant melody and serrated madness with a verve that’s equally parts classically heavy and up-to-date cutting edge.” – Kerrang
“If you’re craving metalcore with more depth, soul and artistry than the average, Marseille’s Landmvrks have you covered.” – RockSound

LANDMVRKS’ was born in 2014 in Marseille, France. The band now consists of FlorentSalfati on vocals, RudyPurkart on bass guitar, NicolasExposito and Paul C. Wilson on guitars and KévinD’Agostino on drums.
For two years, the band composed songs, recorded and started playing local shows by sharing the bill with bands such as FIRSTBLOOD, MORETHANLIFE and little by little, LANDMVRKS started making a name for themselves in the French metalcore scene. During this time, the band released a few singles and videos to help build up their fan base.
In May 2016, LANDMVRKS released their first album »Hollow« entirely produced by FlorentSalfati and NicolasExposito.
They decided to release this album independently, and went out touring on the roads of Europe to showcase this opus.
They seduced their audiences with a modern metalcore style peppered with hardcore riffs and catchy choruses. This album helped secure them slots on big festivals, helping to strengthen their reputation.
In 2018, the band signed a contract with ArisingEmpire Records for their second studio album »Fantasy« and they demonstrate how successfully the band has managed to build their name and assert its own style.
During two years, they travelled the world, played in Japan, did some headlines tours and had the opportunity to have great European tours (WhileSheSleeps, StrayFromThePath, AnyGivenDay).
While they were on the road, they had the time to focus on a brand new material. The band members gathered together when lockdown ended in France, after one of the strangest periods ever experienced. The time had come for them to assemble, within the vocalist’s studio (HomelessRecords), the elements of their 3rd album, fashioned for months. The purpose of this album, entitled »Lost In The Waves«, is clearly not to reinvent LANDMVRKS. The purpose is to fully deploy the band’s arsenal in order to definitively impose its style. An uncompromising style, assumed, claimed, and highly distinctive. The listener goes through massive, energetic, or even aerial parts, without escaping the efficient groove inherited from a rap culture. The musical production of this album is the most accomplished and organic that the group has ever had. The tone was clearly set by ‘Rainfall’, the first single released in early October.
This album shows that instead of getting lost in the waves, the French band firmly holds the helm.
