Greece’s prog power titans Illusory have released their new album Crimson Wreath which is out now via Rockshots Records.
Having opened for such legendary acts Blue Oyster Cult, Warrel Dane, Geoff Tate, and Gus G, Illusory’s third full-length Crimson Wreath is the next step in their widely praised evolution to follow 2016’s Polysllabic (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.
