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 Headbangers Ball, the band went through line-up changes. After supporting their album with many live 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".

Nox Vorago started in 2006 in Gothenburg, Sweden. They recorded two demos, one in 2007 and one in 2009, they were only released on the web. In those early years they performed gigs at various clubs locally and also opened for some bigger acts; such as Wolves in the throne room (CA) at club Nemis in 2010.

Their first full-length album titled “Obsidian Stonemirrors”, was recorded and mixed at Grand Recording Studio in Gothenburg 2012, and was released later that same year by the band. The album received good reviews during 2013 and also won the band a slot at Metal Towns Close Up stage in 2013. In December 2013 the band went on a european tour as support act to Six Feet Under (US) and the co-headliners Vredehammer (NO). During 2014 they’ve been working on their second full-length album and recorded one track to be released as a single. They also went on a second european tour as co-headlining act to Vredehammer.
