Odd-Y-Sea – Official Music Video

Dearest inhabitants of the Ivory Tower, friends and collaborators. With the third album wrapping up, with respective rehearsals having started already – as the band wants to look good for you livewise and stagewise – and taking all necessary precautions because of the pandemic (we STAY safe), the Ivories thought it was only right to keep everyone on their feet.

Since they’ve got plenty of footage and they would gladly share it with you, how about another treat? This one is “Odd-Y-Sea“, off the boys’ sophomore album, “Polysyllabic“, coming from their February 2019 live appearance, alongside Mr. Geoff Tate and his Operation: Mindcrime band, LiVE at the Gagarin 205 Club in Athens. Prior to the “Polysyllabic” release, back in the day, this song hit the speakers and the earphones as the first (lyric) video and made a Metal impact, to say the least.

Naturally there’s more to come and naturally the third album is on the verge. Thus, sit back, watch the video, enjoy, rest assure your huge input is always valued and appreciated and remember to remain healthy and Shine On!

Rock In Dio – Vol. 10 – POSTPONED

It takes a lot of courage to postpone a sold-out show. Especially when that specific concert has become an institution over the years. Especially when all proceedings go to charity.
Rock In Dio vol. 10 is postponed this year due to immense respect to human nature because of the Corona Virus restrictions. The ones responsible for this amazing event decided to follow the natural path, taking under consideration all variables concerning human hygiene and protection from the virus.

ILLUSORY was going to be part of that special celebration of music. No harm done. Instead, the Ivories feel honored that the organizers respect our fellow citizens so much. There will be another day, for sure.
Thank you, stay healthy, stay safe, Shine On!

DREAMSHADE is in the finals of London’s Music Video Festival

ILLUSORY: “Dreamshade” is now a London Music Video Festival finalist!

It was after that initial meeting regarding the video we wanted to do for our song “Dreamshade” off the “Polysyllabic” album. We simply looked at each other and said just this one little phrase. “And we are about to do what”?

Almost thirty months later, this video alone is travelling to London and the LMVF festival. “Dreamshade” is part of the finals now. Come the first day of July, we will all have the pleasure and the honor to see our own brainchild compete with the rest of the chosen ones.

Naturally, at this point, congratulations are in order. Congrats to our director, Maria Chatzigianni (aka M-Word), the amazingly talented girl, who attended that meeting with enthusiasm and love; congrats to her unique team as well! As for Dimitris Alexandris, the very starring hero of our souls… This gentleman is beyond words and descriptions. Thank you so much for your support, we shall revert this Summer!
