TERRA INCOGNITA – Sign With Blood
Style: Heavy Metal
Rating: 8,5 / 10
When I saw for the first time the cover of this EP, I was sure that I will hear a gothic band. Even the band logo fooled me. Why? Because this is a heavy metal band with power metal influences. TERRA INCOGNITA came from Athens, Greece, and they are a five-piece band.
Now about music. This EP is about 18 minutes total time and it has 4 songs. I don’t like EP’s very much because are too short and is hard to make a valid idea about the band music.
The first song is “My Emptiness” which is a fast and powerful song just fine to open this EP. Very powerful and strong voice too, and make a perfect match with other instruments.
The second song is “Conqueror” and is a song that alternates slow parts with speed parts like some beautiful songs from ICED EARTH if you know what I mean.
TERRA INCOGNITA is a very good band with a strong evolution from the 2011 album “Barren Land”. These EP compositions are stronger, more complex and it sounds better. These Greeks are on the right track and I enjoy very much this 4 beautiful songs.
The only bad thing I have to say about this release is that after 5 years from the debut I expected a full-length album, not just 4 songs. But better less than nothing! Right?
