Illusion biography
ILLUSION originated in Detroit, forming in 1980 playing a style of 'original classic rock'.

The band played the local scene in Detroit for quite a number of years, finally releasing a 6 song CD featuring songs from their earlier years as a band.

In 2002, the band released their first true full length studio album, "Mysteries & Secrets Revealed!", released on Legacy Media Group.

In September 2004, the band began the recording process on the follow up to their first album. It was released the following year, entitled "Sleight of Hand"

The band's line up currently consists of John Patrick on guitar, hammond organ and vocals, Jon Roybal on Drums and Vocals, Ron Smith on Bass Guitar and vocals and Doug Tucker on Vocals and Guitar.

The band continues to play a fairly traditional brand of progressive metal.

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

3 stars ILLUSION are a four piece band out of Detroit who play a guitar driven brand of music with a vocalist who sounds like a cross between Guy Manning and Gord Downie (TRAGICALLY HIP). Actually the HIP (as we call them up here) are a good refernce point as ILLUSION play a hard rocking style of music with a Folk flavour that comes through at times. I must say the music on this album is something i'd expect to hear on my local Classic Rock station. Nothing too complex, just straight forward catchy tracks that for the most part rock out pretty good.

"Now Is The Nothing" opens with spoken words as the bass comes in. Vocals before a minute. He has such a unique voice, I could see him being well liked by the Southern Rock fans. The song kicks in then settles as contrasts continue. "Bible Black" opens with some atmosphere. Acoustic guitar then the reserved vocals. A folky beginning but then it picks up and gets fuller. "I Am What Might Have Been" contrasts well the heavier sections with the more laid back sections. Nice bass too.

"Of Time And The River" opens with the guitar making some noise before everyone joins in. "You Lied" has a nice heavy intro.Vocals follow in this uptempo track. "All Too Clearly" has lots of energy as vocals and guitar lead. I'm reminded of CHEAP TRICK here instrumentally. "The Despised" has such a great 1 minute intro. It settles when the vocals arrive as contrasts continue. "Tapping" is a cool tune. I like the lyrics. "Immaculant Deception" has lots of fine guitar early. A good song. "Die A Little More Tonight" is a song I can't get into. Reserved vocals and acoustic guitar. "A Winter's Tale" is much better as the guitar leads. "Nevermore" is nice and heavy with vocals. "His Shell" ends it with strummed guitar and vocals.

Maybe not an album that will win a lot of fans on this site necessarily, but a good album nonetheless.
