Ilium – “Genetic Memory”

“Genetic Memory”
(Escape Music)

Man, you can’t go wrong with a vocalist like Mike DiMeo. Ex Riot, ex Masterplan, this dude’s vocals rock! And now he’s found the next platform for his talents in the form of Aussie band Ilium, who themselves have been thru many changes since their inception in 1998. Musically it’s not a million miles from Riot with power mixed in with metal and of course, heaps of guitar driven melodies like on the amazing ‘Ephemeral’, ‘Grey Stains The Rainbow’ and ‘The Immortality Gene’. At times quiet, whilst during others fast n furious, Ilium are always spell bounding on the 11 tracks on this excellent album!
