Bio

Illyria is an Australian post-black/progressive metal band formed in 2015. Their goal is to capture on the gracious melodies and pulsating rhythms of their hybrid genre whilst promoting the accessibility of post-black metal to new listeners around the world. The band has shared the stage with a diverse range of artists such as Alcest, Ne Obliviscaris, Plini, Caligula’s Horse, Make Them Suffer and Lindsay Schoolcraft.

The band has returned with their 2019 release titled The Carpathian Summit. The album continues from their 2016 self-titled album (Illyria) with 11 new tracks adding on to their repertoire of diverse styles and symbolic motifs. They have released two music videos/singles from the album, 'Wilderness' and ‘Kenopsia.' Wilderness was featured on the Spotify editorial playlists, 'Black & Dark Metal' and 'New Metal Tracks.' Kenopsia received extensive radio play on Triple J Home and Hosed/Unearthed in Australia.

Yesssss! AGAIN! This is what i'm talking aboutttttt. It's just so good. It's metal, it's thrashy, it let's everything out. It's your worst nightmare but also your therapy. It's so sick.

Everyone in the office is speaking in tongues and drawing pentagrams in blood on the studio desks. I hope you guys are happy.
