“Ethical Dilemma” ist das Ergebnis einer Zusammenarbeit zwischen dem Sänger von Terra 1nc0gnita, Billy Vass, und dem Multimusiker/Produzenten Bob Katsionis. Die Idee, die als Soloalbum für Vass begann, mündete in einem Progressive-Metal-Album, dass nicht ohne den etablierten Namen Katsionis im gesamten Projekt auskommen konnte. Vor diesem Hintergrund vereinten die beiden Musiker ihre Liebe zum Progressive Meta, jeder aus seinem Blickwinkel auf das Songwriting, und das Ergebnis ist eine Reise aus komplexen Gitarren und Keyboards und der einzigartiger 4-Oktaven-Stimme von Billy Vass.

Billy Vass: 

” It’s definitely a concept album. It didn’t really begin that way. When I began writing the lyrics & melodies, I realised  how the music to every song had a “constant”. Therefore, unintentionally, the lyrics started producing their own “constant”. Although the songs are not storytelling through the lyrics, there is one specific theme in all of them. You can get a clearer picture by the album title. This collaboration brought out the best of my vocal &  lyric abilities. I gave it my all, heart &  soul, and I feel this album is transcendent.” 

 

Bob Katsionis: 

“I’ve known Billy Vass for over a decade, and I was always amazed by both his vocal timbre and stage presence. By giving me the chance to write music for him, I could go in places I’ve never been before, or at least since 1998 when with playing Progressive metal with my former band, Retrospect. The 90’s progressive metal as it was presented to us by Fates Warning, Queensryche and Conception was our foundation, on which we built our own fortress, the “Ethical Dilemma” album.”
