LANFEAR were founded in 1993 in Germany. They recorded a selftitled demo and released their debut "Towers" by themselves. Urwerk Records re-released the album with a different cover artwork in 1997. The more progressive second work "Zero Poems" saw the light of day in 1999 and was released by the small label Famous Kitchen. The public interest about LANFEAR grew rapidly and today many people consider "Zero Poems" as a Prog Metal classic.
