Last year bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson and ProgRock Records introduced Terra Incognita: An innovative crossover project of fantasy on a grand scale-- an epic novel and companion progressive-rock CD. Following up the success of the first effort, Anderson and ProgRock Records bring you the second Terra Incognita CD, "A Line in the Sand" to coincide with the release of the second novel, THE MAP OF ALL THINGS. Featuring a different, grittier part of the story, focusing on the devastating generations-long war between continents, and it has an entirely different sound.

This time, the music is helmed by Henning Pauly (Frameshift, Chain, Shadows Mignon) who brings hard-driving guitars, passion, and thought-provoking complexity to the music. Vocals are by rock legends Steve Walsh (Kansas), Michael Sadler (ex-Saga), Sass Jordan (Album Rock's Female Vocalist of the Year), Alex Froese (Frameshift) and Nick Storr (The Third Ending), with guest appearances by Charlie Dominici, Juan Roos and Arjen A. Lucassen. As with the first CD, Anderson co-wrote all of the lyrics with his wife, bestselling author Rebecca Moesta, two of the songs, The Crown and Need, are co-written by Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Janis Ian.
