Biography

"Land". This is the first solo project of guitarist, songwriter and singer from Lithuania, Rod K

Like a lot of musicians, Rodion started playing music from an early age with some of his school friends. In 1991 he was the guitarist of the famous Lithuanian indie band “Endless way”. The track “I’m one” was included in the compilation of artists from the Baltic States, ”Balts Bite Back”, which was released by “Zona” records (LT) and “Stupido Twins”(FIN) in 1993.

That year Rod formed his own rock band, “Merlin” (www.merlin.lt) where he was the guitarist and composed all the music during the 10-year career in which “Merlin” released 6 albums in Lithuania. They also led active concert and festival lives in their own country and abroad:

1997 ”Rock Summer” Tallinn (EST)
1998 ”Liepajas Dzintars” Liepaja (LV)
1999”Norden Pop Festival” Reykjavik (ICE).

So, at the beginning of 2004 “Land” started to record their first album “You Take The Waters” and with “the little help from the friends” (different fellow rock musicians) completed recording through spring 2005.

Debut album was shortly released on leading national label “PRIOR Records” in Vilnius on 18 JULY 2005.

At the same time “Land” starts live performances with their own line-up: founder Rod K - vocal, guitar, Donatas “Fetas” Ferensas as the bass player, drummer Rytis Rutkauskas and Darius Uscila – keyboards:

Lyrics

Advent Of Angels

Written By: Rod K

Advent Of Angels

In this fight no one wins and no one loses
Since soldiers die and mothers cry,
There'll be no life for anyone
It seems the judgment day is closer more and more
Heaven doesn't open its door for just anyone

Advent of angels for mercy and vengeance.
Advent of angels - beginning of the End
Senses so tensed before the advent of angels
Advent of angels - no other defense

Each and all, eager to rule the world
Will carry death…
They leave behind, that Earth was made for living sake… without end
But we must keep in our mind is like a law
That our faith is always in the hands of Lord

Advent of angels - For mercy and vengeance.
Advent of angels - beginning of the End
Senses so tensed before the advent of angels
Advent of angels - no other defense

When we are pressed against the wall
When we start clearing our souls
When we hold fast to higher love
Then we'll find the key to the door

Advent of angels approaching
Advent of angels - beginning of the End
Senses so tensed before the advent of angels
Advent of angels - Godsend

You Take The Waters

Written By: Rod K

Like the eyes of the devil, cold crystal diamonds

That lies in the oceans mysterious deep

They are worth nothing, they’re beyond your reach

It’s like your captured, a fish in a net

You take the waters from His hands

You‘ve found the protection that’s a gift from heaven

And isn’t it funny? How can it be?

And just like a trapped bird that dies in jail

The only reason is for our love

You take the waters, the crystal waters, from His hands

And blood-red flowers, they play in colours

Which have been sewn on the battle lands

You take the waters, the crystal waters, from His hands

You Start a Fire

Written By: Rod K

To be with you -
IS LIKE A dream come true
When I see your eyes
My spirit flies
I never thought that I'd meet you
You make my whole life new
In me you start a fire when I see your lovely smile
Drawn to the flame of felling when I see You, I hear you
Everything around me lit by the glowing smile
In me you start a fire
TO HEAR YOUR VOICE
AN ANGELS CHOICE
TO FEEL YOU NEAR
TO BE WITH YOU HEAR
I never thought that I'd meet you
You make my whole life new
In me you start a fire when I see your lovely smile
Drawn to the flame of felling when I see You, I hear you
Everything around me lit by the glowing smile
In me you start a fire
There's a fire burning A giant flame of yearning
There's a fire burning In my Heart
