“Victim Of Illusion” Take a moment to replace other’s illusions with your truth. Now add your illusions and forget everything else!

 Victim Of Illusion were formed in Turin in Summer 2010 by Piero (guitar) and Paolo (vocals). It’s about time I post a blog about this band from Italy, this are my first favorites found online by myself a couple months ago. I like the dark undertone in the tunes, the Italian accent and the delicious guitar solos, my favorite song is “The Day That Never Comes” Enjoy!

Among VOI’s musical influences are Porcupine Tree, Tool, Massive Attack, Opeth and Riverside, and its music incorporates elements from rock to progressive. During initial improvisation sessions the band composed about a dozen tracks, which were then developed and defined in the following months, when Luca (bass guitar) joined the band

On October 13, 2011 the band’s first EP “What senses blow away” was released, completely recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by the band.

 After gigging for an year, VOI started to work on the 2nd album.

The work ended with a selection of 8 songs, focusing on open sounds, rock/prog riffs and consciousness of illusion.

 “Oxideyes” was released on 1st March 2014.

The album was mixed by Giampiero Ulacco and mastered at Spitfire Mastering Studio.

 On april 2014 Danilo the new drummer joins the band.
