Terra Atlantica was founded in December 2014 by singer Tristan Harders and drummer Nico Hauschildt, who knew each other from a former project. Both could finally fulfil their dream of playing in a classic Power Metal Band in the vein of their idols like Edguy, Avantasia or Rhapsody. They completed their crew with bassist Nick and guitarist Mike. Quickly, the idea of singing about the saga of Atlantis and other nautical myths developed and the first album ‘A City Once Divine’ was written. Catchy choruses, polyphone vocals and epic orchestration became of great importance to the band. The debut record was released in 2017, along with the video to the all-time favorite ‘Atlantica’. In the following years they played some bigger shows with bands like Majesty, Stormwarrior, Grailknights or Victorius.

Over time there were some changes made to the line-up, causing the second album to become a solo effort by Harders and Hauschildt for the most part. Recordings started in 2018 and took place at Tonlabor/ HAW, in Hamburg, Germany mainly. 

Furthermore, the crew is complete again with Julian Prüfer on bass and Freddie Akkermann on guitar.

“Age Of Steam” will now be released on August 14th, 2020 via German label Pride & Joy Music and once again offers a lyrical concept. The fictional story continues the saga of Atlantis and takes place in the 19th century. Atlantis arises again and, with its advanced technologies, heralds the start of the Industrial Revolution. The British Empire feels menaced by this new power and, by an act of treason, tries to eliminate the new rival in the fight for domination on the seven seas.

The orchestral arrangements again come courtesy of guitarist/singer Alex Hunzinger (Aeternitas) from Lübeck, Germany. Singer Oleg Rudych (Magistarium) and Gabriel Tuxen (Seven Thorns) appear as guests.

Mix and mastering was handled by Marc Wüstenhagen (guitars, Thunder And Lightning) from Berlin; the cover artwork was created by Dusan Marcovic (Dragony, Symphonity).
