Hailing from Machado, Minas Gerais, Brazil, the band was formed in 2002, being then called Neverland. Still in the 2002, the group changes it's name to Lothlöryen, homaging one of it's bigger passions, J.R.R. Tolkien. Always working intensely, still before completing one year, the band released it's demo, Thousand Ways you the Same Land. At the time, the group was formed by Alessandro Nicolete (Bass), Elias P. Oliveira (Drums), Leonaldo Oliveira (Guitars/Vocals) and Wesley Soares (Guitars).
