Title: ROSWELL SIX RELEASES "TERRA INCOGNITA: A LINE IN THE SAND"
Post by: karpatisz on March 25, 2010, 12:48:05 AM
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – 22 March 2010 – Following up the success of the first effort, Anderson and ProgRock Records announce the second Terra Incognita CD, "A Line in the Sand" to coincide with the publication of the second novel, THE MAP OF ALL THINGS. "This CD features a different, grittier part of the story, focusing on the devastating generations-long war between continents, and it has an entirely different sound," said Anderson.

This time, the music is helmed by Henning Pauly (Frameshift, Chain, Shadows Mignon) and features some artists returning from the first CD as well as new performers. "Henning is absolutely perfect for this type of music, with hard-driving guitars, passion, and thought-provoking complexity," said Shawn Gordon of PRR. "Kevin’s been a fan of Henning’s music for years, and this seemed to be a perfect match."

"Terra Incognita: A Line in the Sand" Vocals are by rock legends Steve Walsh (Kansas), Michael Sadler (ex-Saga), and Sass Jordan (Album Rock’s Female Vocalist of the Year) and Nick Storr (The Third Ending) with guest appearances by Charlie Dominici (solo, original Dream Theater vocalist), Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon and many others), Alexander Froese (Frameshift) and Juan Roos (Shadow’s Mignon). Anderson and Moesta penned the lyrics/story again and even cowrote two songs with multi-Grammy winner Janis Ian (“Society’s Child," "At Seventeen," etc.). Due to commitments to their own bands/projects, Erik Norlander and some of the original performers were unable to participate in the second CD.

"With two CDs and two novels, this takes Terra Incognita into unprecedented territory," said Anderson. "Progressive rock has always focused on story and ideas. The union of music and prose has never before been done on this scale." Both "A Line in the Sand" (ProgRock Records) and THE MAP OF ALL THINGS (Orbit Books) will be released in June.

"Terra Incognita: A Line In The Sand" is the new worldwide ProgRock Records release from Roswell Six and can be found at http://www.progrockrecords.com/artists/view.php?id=116. You can hear 3 full songs on MySpace and also join us on Facebook. The album will be released mid April 2010 and available in stores late June 2010 but is available for immediate pre-sale at a $2 discount. The first 50 pre-sales will also include a signed original manuscript page from the book. In addition the following discounted combinations are available:

Cool concept--being a literary-oriented individual myself, I think it's a cool idea to have a novel released with the album (if I'm interpreting the press release correctly?). It also seems to be a common occurrence in prog to have numerous established vocalists perform with a "backing band" if you will; in fact, Sass Jordan was involved in a project called "Aina" a few years back, which was akin to this album by the looks of it. Sound like a cool project, though I always get a kick out of the fact that Sass Jordan in on Canadian idol, yet she's involved with progressive metal projects, haha. Maybe being Canadian isn't that bad at all  ;D

If you get to read this Charlie, would you mind discussing the project a little bit? Especially your involvement in it? As far as I'm concerned, you can tell us about anything--the production, the story, the significance of your song to the album, your co-singer, etc. Also, this DEFINITELY isn't the place for this question, but i'll ask it anyway: will there be any forthcoming solo work in the near(ish) future? Thanks!

I've been a huge fan of Kevin J Anderson for awhile and was all over the first disc/novel from the very beginning. New album is great and Charlie did a fantastic job I thought. Can't wait for the 2nd book to get released.

Not a lot to tell, I was asked to sing on a song with Steve Walsch and I could not turn that down.
