Morgan comments: "A portal is opening to an alternate version of earth: Terran. A glimpse into this world, colliding with our own, allows us to see our faults, shortcomings and the inner-darkness. We struggle to hold on to our humanity as the darkness fights to overtake us. This clash of worlds may however serve as a glimmer of hope for change! The constant battle, switching back and forth between imminent destruction and a better future... Where will it end? This new single, 'Terran', holds the torch of the album name, and boldly demonstrates Morgan's musical vision. It's both melodic and heavy, technical and epic, and is performed with a dynamic fervor suitable for otherworldly travel. This album brings an onslaught of new instrumental guitar driven metal - coming your way!"

'Terran' is the title track from Reid's long-awaited debut album, which is released today. The album features the previously released singles 'A Formless Icon', 'Grand Champ', 'Djinn & Juice' and 'Goliath Online'. The project is supported by Initiative Musik gGmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media (Germany).

Having moved to Europe at the age of 18 to study dance, and the past 15 years of working in that field have been integral to Morgan's development as a composer and songwriter.
