Lantlôs was founded in 2005/2006 in Rheda, Germany by Herbst and Angrrau. Some rough demos were recorded and later released on the extremely limited "Îsern Himel" demo tape by the band itself in 2008. Because both Herbst and Angrrau were not satisfied with the sound and "Îsern Himel" was always meant to be a demo, they started to record the debut in their homestudio in September of 2007. After Alboîn joined as a session singer their first line-up was complete. "Lantlôs", released by ATMF, saw daylight in September of 2008 in combination with the perfect artwork by Fursy Teyssier. Shortly thereafter, Angrrau and Alboîn left Lantlôs. The debut was rereleased on LP via Deviant Records and on tape via Karge Welten in 2009.
In the end of 2007/early 2008 Herbst started to work on the next album".neon", and eventually Neige joined Lantlôs as a permanent vocalist. ".neon" was recorded in February 2009. In March 2010 Lantlôs switched to Prophecy Productions. Again Fursy Teyssier delivered even more breathtaking artwork for ".neon" and the new material was released in May 2010.
Herbst and Neige will enter the studio in mid July 2010 to record the third full length.
Herbst words about their following album; "With our new album we'll tread new paths, both musically and conceptually. In general, the upcoming album will be very vanguard and rather unaccessible and the black metal vibe will be gone almost entirely. Still the record will be much darker than its predecessors, nihilistic, and strange. It'll be bulky, ugly and will feed off its listeners." Read more on Last.fm.
