“Mirrorland” is the second full-length album of Estate. It is powerful, attractive, mystical epic progressive power metal.
This album is a huge step up for the band. It is heavier and more progressive, but by no means Estate has lost their calling card – the lyrical and romantic melodism.
“Mirrorland”s very diverse but the songs keep the same vibe and are filled with obscure and mysterious atmosphere.
The recordings began in August 2015 and lasted till May 2017 at the band’s own studio. Mixing and mastering is done by band’s guitarist Peter Filevsky.
Guest musicians include Mats Leven (Therion, Treat, and Candlemass) and Mark Boals (Y.Malmsteen, Royal Hunt, and Ring of Fire)
Vocal – Iliand Ferro
Guitar – Peter Filevsky
Bass – Vadim Lalayan
Keys – Dmitriy «Mauzer» Efimov

In the beginning of 2015 ESTATE presented their new album in their home city, Krasnodar. The show was fantastic and epic and the local Rock Bar held the crowd of 400 people. After that the band performed with DORO (ex-WARLOCK), Michael Schenker (ex-SCORPIONS, ex-UFO, MSG) and KIPELOV (ex-Aria).
In summer 2015 the band went touring in support of the album around Europe.
