Illuminatus - The Wrath Of The Lambs

Creating emotional soundscapes of slashing cymbals, fat skins, massive slabs of rolling heavy riffery woven with uplifting and weeping guitarwork Illuminatus fully deserve their illustrious name and to top it off they have a geezer who's vocals can change from silken cream to hard grizzly emotion..

The Wrath Of The Lambs opens with 'Captive State' and the bands immaculate post metal sound becomes unleashed, building to a crescendo of layered soundscapes that infects with its passionate stance straight into 'Wait' the second track and the first single to come from this album by now the hairs should be standing on your neck and the heat rising from the massive slabs of post hardcore emotions tempered by the bands intelligent progressive style and the flowing vocals of Taylor.

The Third song Suburban Symmetry is the track from a demo EP that earned the band comparisons with Anathema for its soul grabing feel, while the forth track is surly going to earn them points for its ability to conjure a picture of the rising of the mass's as 'The Wrath Of The lambs' rise's in determined belief.
'Black' continues the message of 'The Wrath of The Lambs' with its heavy guitar riffs providing a solid foundation for Taylor to articulate the regretful lyrics of the song, the speed and tone pick up with Fear/Control and introduces the piano to the bands heavy ominous sounding riff's and lifts the feel of the previous two tracks to levels of optimism before bringing us back to the massive emotional soundscapes that Illuminatus have made their own with 'Emotion Sickness' the stirring 'Wargasm' and the untouchable 'White Lies'.

Playing a heavy as **** sound punctuated with idealisms and intellectual observations Illuminatus have recorded and mastered nine outstanding songs for their debut album 'The Wrath Of The Lambs'.
Written with street wise experience and the sharp perspective's of a street poet the band have produced some stunning lines that articulate the truths of the corporate society we live in. Where politicians threaten to dismantle the human rights of the people and the food industry grow fat on the obesity of the poor, while the education of our children are hyped by marketing men...
