Cold Lands formed in Grenoble, France in 2011, when four musicians joined forces to create a sound at once beautiful, melancholy, heavy and atmospheric.
After several years, the project becomes a One Man Project with his founder member, Alexandre MARTORANO, who produces now his own music in collaboration with the French studio LE HANGAR 38, and on stage with session live musicians.
Influenced by several bands, COLD LANDS creates an Authentic sound, sincere in emotion, and deeply reflective.
Stemming from the classic music school where he studied the classic guitar during eight years and having joined diverse musical projects, it is in 2004 that Alexandre Martorano begins to write his first musical compositions.
These first titles will be interpreted within the group RADIAL ENGINES (Alternative rock / Grenoble) and recorded in 2009 on the first one street album, at the post of guitarist Lead and chorus.
In the same period, compositions are born within a parallel project, in a much more atmospheric style, at present even in the course of writing.
In 2011, a new project of group, COLD LANDS (Atmospheric Rock / Grenoble), is born under its impulse. It is at the post of guitarist singer that he is finally going to have a chance to reveal to the public a real potential, confirmed by the release of a first EP in January, 2012, recorded in the studio LE HANGAR 38 (Grenoble – FRANCE), and which will be the object of several interviews, radio, chronicles, a publication in the magazine METALLIAN, and a selection in thecompilation 2012 of the webzine FRENCH metal in the months which follow.
It is with this project that Francesco Alessi (Producer Director of the studio LE HANGAR 38, collaboration with the ex Iron Maiden Blayze Bailey, Francis Lalanne ..) decides the same year to sign a production contract with the group concerning the realization of a first album. The group will then be contacted by diverse partners which assure for a moment his promotion, in particular DOOWEET, situated in Paris, structures grouping in the time the best potential of groups of Rock and Metal music in FRANCE. Others groups contact Alexandre to assure parts of song within their albums. After the first album INSIDE released in October, 2013, COLD LANDS will occur on diverse scenes in France until 2016, in particular in the highly-rated of the group THE OLD DEAD TREE during their last concert.
