Even though this line-up lasted less than two years, it released one self-produced, self-titled album '"X-TERRA" which some refer to as "the red album". One of the songs from this album "Woe To The Wicked" was included on WRKC Radio's compilation CD. "Terrestial Sensations" released in 2000.

In July 2011 X-TERRA was on the featured regional artist in the Pennsylvania Musician Magazine.
With these and many more good things on the horizon and the renewed interest in classic 70's and 80's hard rock/classic metal, X-TERRA is definitely a band for the present.
