Iliad are a three piece cinematic math rock band from Donegal, Ireland. Forming in 2016, Iliad have spent the last 4 years challenging the musical ideas and structures that they held before the start of the project. Born out of a want to create pieces of music that were original, unique and thought provoking, Iliad submerged themselves in the sounds of the Irish Instrumental scene. Influenced by bands such as Enemies, Overhead, the Albatross, And So I Watch You From Afar and The Redneck Manifesto, Iliad have created a sound they are excited to share with the Irish instrumental scene.
Their debut release, "How to Make a Pun out of Grapes" a single piece made up of two tracks that flow together, went live in February 2020 on all major platforms.
