Fast Lane is an outstanding metal trio, that boasts a ton of experience and an unconventional raw power coupled with pure creativity. Their roots can be traced back to the good old days (Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Jimi Hendrix). Their current influences include Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach, Korn and many more.
In the early days Fast Lane produced a CD “First Exit” with couple of their own songs. Sales topped 5,000 copies and they enjoyed a successful tour. The band started to believe in themselves. Next, a Demo landed on the desk of Reality Entertainment. Fast Lane were given an opportunity to make a record with the legendary rock-producer, Warren Croyle.
“Planet Earth” was recorded at Newsound Studio, Pfaffikon SZ. An Album of the same name was released in Switzerland couple of months before 9/11 (“Planet Earth” – Solara, Reality Entertainment, Edel/Phonag).
The “Planet Earth” video was played on VIVA throughout that memorable day in history along with Songs like I know you know, Talk about and Frozen. They also enjoyed several TV and Radio appearances including SF’s Weekend Music with Dani Beck and One-Hour Rock Special on DRS lll.
Fast Lane had a deal with Nuclear Blast in Germany. The release was impossible after the events of 9/11, the music industry declined and the band found themselves at their own ground zero.
Since then they produced a further 3 CDs which were sold during live tours.
Heavy Rock – this is how Fast Lane describe their music. It’s rough, straight & honest. Check it out for your self. Go to media > music > section.
