3 stars "Terra Incognita" is the 2nd full-length studio album, or rather a re-recorded version of the band´s 4th studio album from 2002 from when they were called Nemesis (also titled "Terra Incognita"), by Hungarian progressive metal act Age of Nemesis. The original 2002 version features Hungarian lyrics while the 2007 version features English lyrics. "Terra Incognita" was released by Magna Carta in January 2007.

The band play progressive metal in the Dream Theater keyboard laden style. There are also some strong references to an act like Queensr˙che on the album. Especially the vocals and the vocal lines point in that direction. We´re talking brilliant musicianship, strong compositions and a concept story told in the lyrics. There´s a slight accent to the singing but it´s nothing major. What the band lack on this album is a more original approach though. I wouldn´t exactly call the album generic but it´s not the kind of album where if I were presented to the music would be able to say: "hey that´s Age of Nemesis playing".

The production is very good and one of the things that score real high points in my book.

All in all "Terra Incognita" is a very professional sounding progressive metal album that is consistent and well played. It lacks an original sound but still a 3.5 star rating is warranted.

UMUR | 3/5 |
