This Friday’s Guest DJ: ILLUSORY

ILLUSORY actually share the same bloodline with the band Ivory Tower, which was formed back in 1992 in Moschato, Athens, Greece. Later on, the band discovered there was another (German) band called Ivory Tower. Should they wanted to pursue a professional edge to their musical way, they changed name to ILLUSORY.

The band decided to entitle their debut album The Ivory Tower, released in 2013, which sounded completely logical and consequential to their lives and works so far. Sophomore album, entitled Polysyllabic, was released in 2016 to become the sonic vehicle which carried the ILLUSORY sound further and prepared the way for a breakthrough release.

Later, the band was selected to open for the legendary Geoff Tate (Queensrÿche) and his Operation:Mindcrime saga. 2021 finds the band ready to release their third album Crimson Wreath. 

Tune in at 15:00 and 21:00 CET/ 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. EST this Friday to hear the show!

  • Petar Chobanov

    Petar is a screener here at Metal Express Radio and makes sure that the new music we play on the radio is pure quality! He's been surrounded by music since birth. Both his parents graduated from music academy and then spent many years teaching in a music-profile high school. Petar himself discovered Rock music when he was a little kid back in the late 80s. His dad had lots of tracks on tapes, including Rainbow (DIO period). Later he and his brother bought some audio cassettes of The Beatles, Queen, Europe, AC/DC, etc. What really made him believe in Rock forever was the Deep Purple's live album Come Hell Or High Water (1994). Nowadays his preferences in Rock/Metal vary from Muddy Waters to Pantera, all the way through any sub genres you might think of.
