Progeland was founded by one man's vision of improving the world by creating beautiful music to mankind, beside the vision, this man had the gift of composing music and the gift of finding the greatest riffs and melodies and turning them into the most classic progressive compositions.
One man is not a band, so it is with this in mind that in 2007 Lindström started to seek musicians to make Progeland come alive. Petri "Lemmy" Lindström, went for a journey of exploration to the Land of Prog, with his music. Heading to his destination, he met a wayfarer, Tomi Murtomäki, who had the message and voice with him. Now there was someone to put the touching stories with the music and sing them. Together they continued the journey.
The twosome was to grow into a band when they discovered more messengers of progressive rock. The journey that started as a one man-vision continued with new stories, music, recordings, performances and listeners, towards the promised-land that welcomes everyone, towards the Land of Prog, of which sun's twelve rays shine with warmth, joy and brightness telling a story about friendship, sharing and caring; bringing tranquility and understanding; providing emotions, passion, community and music. Good will and peace can be found under the sun of Progeland. In 2011 the band released their self titled debut and by 2013 Petri Lindström had brought together some of the finest musicians that would become what Progeland is today.
Progeland have started to record their 2nd album to be released in early 2014 as they feel it is time to show the rest of the world what they have already known: It's time to join the fantasy journey to the funky world of Progeland.
