2006 Blacklands was founded in 2006 by drummer Thomas Kelleners.
2007 In 2007 keyboard player Manfred Reinecke and singer Moja Nardelli joined the band. Until the fall of 2009 various bassists and guitar players were incorporated into the songs, but always in vain.
2010 After several line-up changes, almost very near their final off, the band finally found, in 2010, Rüdiger Sartingen on bass and Michael Stockschläger on guitar - the perfect cast.
2011 In 2011 the band released a 6 track demo recording and started to play live.
2013 Now, on their debut album "A New Dawn" Blacklands from Germany presents 12 excellent songs with a total playing time of almost 80 minutes! An impressive production of finest melodic rock with slight progressive influences feat. Killer guest appearances by Lennie Rizzo of Exxplorer, Terry Gorle of Heir Apparent & Giles Lavery of Dragonsclaw! "[[Blacklands - A New Dawn|A New Dawn]]" - A musical whirlwind full of diverse, highly sophisticated compositions which are always led by the stunningly beautiful voice of singer Moja. These songs will unite fans of various musical tastes, but they surely appeal to a worldwide audience! Fans of top metal acts like Nightwish and Iron Maiden, to fans of Pink Floyd and Marillion should keep their ears wide open! Official CD release will be available through the Blacklands website on 9th March 2013.
