About Me

I started a few terrible punk bands in the very early 2000s (Violence Under Pressure and The Lunchbox Bandits) and a metalcore band (A Day 2 Late). All three bands performed as opening acts in the Fredericksburg, VA area. But whoa...we were pretty awful. In 2003, I started recording mostly on my own. "Ex Libris Deus" was originally the artist name I used; now, it makes more sense to fold that work into my portfolio as "Terminus Vex". The Terminus Vex moniker came about as I searched for a handle that conveyed both meaning and mystery - in Latin, "terminus vex" can mean several things. Most of the hip-hop that I've recorded has been released under the TV name, though there may be one or two recordings floating around out there under the name "Mr. Kiasma".
