Illumina, founded by Alex Lackey and Leonard Montano, is comprised of Lackey (Guitars), Montano (Bass), Kelsey White (Guitars), Otto Von Rado (Vocals), Justin Cavis (Drums) and Jessica Cunningham (Vocals).
Hailing from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Illumina have started an uprising in the local underground metal scene. Their DIY debut-album "The Black Guardian," has given fans quality metal to sink their teeth into, and get excited about. Bone-Crunching riffs, savage rhythms, thrashy guitar work, mesmerizing leads/solos, catchy hooks and memorable vocals are what separates this group from the pack; and it is a crowded scene when it comes to metal in NM. For a group to establish themselves and stand out the way Illumina has, is truly an accomplishment worthy of pause for venues or anyone looking to inject some life into their crowds.
Illumina packs a powerful punch with their live performances. With passion and precision, they play louder, faster and more aggressively than almost any unsigned band you will ever witness, especially in the Southwest.
Go Check out ILLUMINA and please follow them as they reignite the fire in NM's passionate music fans.
