ILLUMENIUM started on Oct. 8, 2014, when the remaining members of the previous band Def Rage had their first rehearsal in Graz, Austria.
In the spring of 2015 we released our first promotional demo record Towards Endless 8, basically meant for potential rock concert venues and consisting of 13 songs. We also presented the record in several European countries. At the beginning of 2016 we released a modified version with 18 songs, which we hoped would pave the way for future albums. After touring around Europe for two years the band finally felt that the time for the first album had come, so it was released at the end of 2017. By this time some of the members had left the band. The band playing on JACKAL album consisted of Kari Kärner (singer), Andre Kaldas (screaming vocals), Kevin Presmann (guitar), Romy Leis (rhythm guitar), Raigo Tüür (drums), Karli Raaga (bass guitar). As the first demo record Toward Endless 8 had been released earlier, it was decided to release the first two albums practically together, so the beginning of 2018 saw the release of the second album Gehenna.
At the end of 2018 two rap singers, Avery Niineorg and Erik Kauge joined the band. This is when the idea of creating a totally new style, called hop-hip was born.
