"This is the opening track of the album and also our first single off the "Crimson Wreath" album. A very heavy song with fast guitar gallops, an Eastern flavor, a melodic chorus and a progressive twin guitar melody in the middle of the song.
It speaks about religion, the Seven Deadly Sins and especially about an ancient Greek emotion called Acedia…"
Rockshots Records is proud to announce their latest signing of Greece's Illusory for their third full length “Crimson Wreath” planned for release May 2021. Having opened for such legendary acts Blue Oyster Cult, Warrel Dane, Geoff Tate, and Gus G, the heavy metallers new album is the next step in their widely praised evolution to follow 2016's Polysyllabic (7hard/7us) and 2013's "The Ivory Tower" (The Leaders Records).
Melodic, riffy, cerebral, and complex "Crimson Wreath" is a very emotional and melodic release, yet heavy and strong at the same time. Both new fans and ones who have been listening to the band for years will indulge themselves in this latest offering of classic, progressive, epic, and thrashy performances. Lyrical themes found on “Crimson Wreath” are mostly anti-war, but the full length also includes a thematic unit consisting of three songs that deal with human loss.
