Tera Melos is a band from Roseville, California, that incorporates experimental rock, post-hardcore, ambient electronics and unconventional song structure all in one to create their original type of the math rock genre. They are currently a three-piece (formerly four), consisting of guitar, bass, and drums. Tera Melos play a brand of music characterized by quickly alternating time signatures, start-stop dynamics, two-handed tapping on the guitar, extended open-ended bridges, and the use of effect pedals and samplers. After releasing a four song demo, they self released their self-titled debut full-length on October 4th, 2005. The album comprises eight tracks, and was re-issued in 2008 on Sargent House. While some of the tracks on the album feature distorted vocals that are somewhat undecipherable, guitarist Nick Reinhart started contributing more prominent vocals to the music with the release of their 2007 split with By the End of Tonight, called Complex Full of Phantoms.
