Ilium are a melodic power metal band from Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia who have formulated a unique musical style whilst still retaining familiar elements from pioneering heavy metal (music) and Euro-styled power metal bands. Guitarist Jason Hodges and original vocalist Mark Snedden formed the band as Iliad in 1998 having previously played together in Oracle in the early 1990s. With the introduction of Adam Smith on guitar (also formerly or Oracle), the band changed their name to Ilium. Recording their debut eponymous EP in 2002, the group received critical appraisal and, together with producer Lord Tim of Dungeon set about recording their debut album Sirens Of The Styx. The album was released December 18, 2003 to widespread acclaim and contained such instant classics as Antigone, Semblance and Incipience: Beowulf Defeats Grendel, part one of a trilogy centred around the Beowulf legend, as well as the title track. The band have recently completed work on their second album Permian Dusk, which sees the inclusion of Lord Tim as lead vocalist.
