TELLUS REQUIEM (A Norwegian Progressive Metal Band), was formed in 2007 by guitarist Stig Nergård. In 2010 Tellus Requiem released a self-titled debut album digitally. This album opened up some doors for the band, including playing shows with Kalessin, Edenbridge, Pagan's Mind and the notice of people in the know in the prog-power underground.
The large diversity of individual talents in the band contributes to the huge sounding score. Crunchy guitars with fluid leads, blending perfectly, creating a sonic assault for the listener, sending them into a world of music that leaves a lasting impression on their senses long after the music stops. The music can be described as Progressive metal, with influences of Eastern Folk music, and epic film scores. Very melodic with vocal melodies that glue all the crazy phrasings together! Some more obvious influences are; Symphony X, Opeth, Megadeth, Film scores and classical contemporary music. If Symphony X and 18th century German composer Richard Wagner made a baby, it might sound like one of the colors on the surface of TellusImagine the Requiem!
Tellus Requiem means; "The earths death mass." Tellus being Latin for The Earth, Requiem being the last composition a composer writes before they died. The main theme of the the bands musings is about Worlds Shattering. This can either be global, personal, fictional or literary. Leaving it open to interpretation.
