Metal Mind Productions presents the third live album by Landmarq – one of the leading bands on the British neo-progressive scene! The album entitled â€œTurbulence â€“ Live in Polandâ€ features a recording of the bandâ€™s superb performance at the Wyspianski Theatre in Katowice, Poland in November 2005 taken from the Landmarq DVD of the same title. Majestic guitars and keyboards, sophisticated compositions and Tracy Hitchings’ beautiful voice â€“ itâ€™s all there!
This British neo progressive band was formed in London in 1990. Initially signing to a Dutch record company (SI Records) then forming their own label, Synergy Records, the band have firmly established themselves within the world of progressive rock, though their appeal extends beyond these boundaries to a more mainstream audience. Fronted by the excellent voice of award-winning vocalist Tracy Hitchings, Landmarq have played concerts in the UK, Holland, Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, the USA and Mexico; both as support and as headliners at various rock festivals. At some of these concerts the band worked with many well-known artists, including Marillion, John Wetton (ex-Asia, Roxy Music, etc.), Steve Hackett (ex-Genesis), Hugh McDowell (ELO), Nik Turner (Hawkwind), Annie Haslam (Renaissance), IQ, Arena and even Suzi Quatro plus many others.
Apart from making in-roads into Europe and America, Landmarq have also been invited to play in Scandinavia and South America. The band have reached further territories worldwide, as far afield as Russia, eastern Europe, the Far East, and Australia through various magazine/webzine articles, interviews and radio air-play, plus a number of compilation CDs released by various music magazines from around the world.
Landmarq’s next studio album is close to completion and the band look forward to its release as well as to playing a series of gigs in support of the new studio release. One significant landmark(!) for Landmarq will be in 2010 when the band will celebrate it’s 20th anniversary.
