The idea of Terranaut was formulated deep within a great forest preserve in Chicago around late 2007. Nieko, the band founder, conjured the idea of establishing a Black Metal band writing half a dozen songs and partnering with Keith, a close friend, on the songwriting. The band’s humble beginnings was held under the banner of Dark Sodomy, though thoughts of going in a more serious direction lead to adopting the name of Terranaut in 2008. The name Terranaut became a fitting representation of the Earth-oriented and indigenous motifs found in the lyrics and art of the band.
After a period of inactivity in 2013/2014, original vocalist Alan rejoined the band and also acquiring a new member for bass duties in Patrick. Unfinished tracks became the focus of the band and are set to release an EP/Full Length in 2015.
