Victim Of Illusion were formed in Turin in Summer 2010 by Piero (guitar) and Paolo (vocals).
Among VOI’s musical influences are Porcupine Tree, Tool, Massive Attack, Opeth and Riverside, and its music incorporates elements from rock to progressive. During initial improvisation sessions the band composed about a dozen tracks, which were then developed and defined in the following months, when Luca (bass guitar) joined the band.
On October 13, 2011 the band’s first Ep “What Senses Blow Away” was released. The band recorded, mixed, mastered and produced it.
After gigging for a year, the guys started to work on their 2nd album. The work ended with 8 songs, focusing on open sounds, Rock/Progressive riffs and consciousness of illusion.
“Oxideyes” was released on March 1, 2014. The album was mixed by Giampiero Ulacco and mastered at Spitfire Mastering Studio.
