Led by the charismatic New York native, front-man Billy Vass, Terra IncΩgnita is a band treading waters in a multitude of metal subgenres. The band manages to blend them all together seamlessly, generating a unique and unmistakable sound, melodic, yet full of healthy aggression! With a firm base of classic melodic heavy metal at their core, their fusion of progressive, epic and atmospheric elements is reinforced and enhanced by the inclusion of dark themes throughout their compositions and lyrical subjects.
Terra IncΩgnita was born in 2010. After the self-release of their inaugural album, “Barren Land”,which was received favourably by the press – including Metal Hammer – and having aired their first official music video clip, “OUTCOME”,on Mtv’s HeadbangersBall, the band went through line-up changes. After supporting their album with many lives shows, both locally and abroad,(Rock Harvest Fest, House of Rock, Baltimore, U.S.A.)Terra IncΩgnita had to re-invent itself. This sensitive stage, ultimately forced the band into a 2 year hiatus.
In 2015, the new and improved Terra IncΩgnita was reborn. Rising from the ashes, the band is solidly driven forward by new members, with fresh ideas, new musical journeys, and a thirst to reach the top.
The band is currently in the studio, and started pre-production and recordings for their 2nd album, titled, “Fragments of a Ruined Mind”. A concept album, with many twists and unpredictable turns. An E.P. was recorded in mid 2016, as a prelude, titled “Sign with Blood”.
