Disease Illusion is an Italian Melodic Death Metal band, formed in 2008 by Dario (guitar), Federico (guitar), Fabio (vocals), Alex (drums) and Michele (bass guitar).
Their music is mainly inspired by the legendary Gothenburg sound of bands like Dark Tranquillity, In Flames and At The Gates, but other influences come from every sub-metal genre: the final result is a mix of modern guitar's riffs, groovy and technical drums, catchy and emotional melodies, dark atmospheres, fast rythms and infernal growls and screams, perfect for fans of Amon Amarth, Insomnium, Darkest Hour, Heaven Shall Burn!
Their lyrics treat introspective themes, related to emotions and to the different facets of human soul.
The band released its first EP "Reality Behind The Illusion Of Life" in 2008, which was well rated by critics in various metal magazines and webzines ( in particular it was TOP DEMO on Metalitalia and appeared on Metal Maniac and Metal Hammer IT ).
The band is having an intense live activity in these years, playing all over northern Italy, in Switzerland and Slovenia, and sharing the stage with some of the most important international Metal and Hardcore bands (ABORTED, BLEEDING THROUGH, DYING FETUS, ORIGIN, BENEATH THE MASSACRE, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, MISERY SIGNALS, YOUR DEMISE, NEAERA, DREAMSHADE, BLEED FROM WITHIN, VISION DIVINE, SALT THE WOUND, THE NUMBER TWELVE LOOKS LIKE YOU, WARBRINGER, REVOCATION, The Modern Age Slavery, Slowmotion Apocalypse, Mainline, Infernal Poetry, Idols are Dead, Mothercare and many more) and in some of the most important festivals in Europe (Metalcamp 2009 and Thrash and Burn 2010).
In summer 2010 the band recorded its first full length "Backworld", composed of 10 tracks, recorded at Regrexion Studios by Michele Trasforini in Bologna and mixed and mastered by Simone Mularoni at Domination Studios (The Modern Age Slavery, Stigma, DGM, Empyrios) in San Marino.
