The Deadlight Effect was formed in late 2006 when guitarist/keyboardist Ryan Hart relocated to Las Vegas, NV & came in contact with a group of three other musicians (Danny Barnett, Andy Swartz, & Ivan Mendoza) who had been playing together under a different name.

The band began practicing & writing on a full-time basis and recorded thier first 3-song demo in Febuary 2007. More song-writing & rehearsal followed and the band continued to evolve it's sound. Listeners began to take notice and the band started playing out around thier hometown, developing a loyal fan-base around the world.

In October 2007, the band made a 2-week trek to California to record thier debut full-length album,"Omniscience". The album consisted of 10 tracks, spanning over 55 minutes long. Tracks were posted for streaming online & an immediate surge of praise came from a national audience, including several record labels, promoters, & media outlets.

The album would eventually release January 2008 to an ever-growing fan-base. More shows followed, including several large, sold-out shows with well-known national acts. In Spring 2008, the band hit the road on a 2-month U.S tour, which spanned through out the west coast & surroundings and as far east as Eastern Texas.

Following the tour, musical direction, interests, outside commitments & personalities within the band started to drift apart and there would eventually be a split among band members. Determined to keep going, Ryan would continue on, recruiting various well-known musicians in attempts to create a stronger core.

Over the course of the following year, Ryan would work tediously on writing new material & focusing the band's sound. In late 2009, the band would resurface under a new moniker, A Terminal Sun. Currently the band is in the process of writing material for a new album to be released in the Summer of 2010. The band also plans on several shows & tour dates in support of the album.
