Passion, emotion and substance. These are characteristics that Atlanta, Georgia's Lilitu includes in every song they write. Drawing influences from acts like Dark Tranquillity, HIM, Radiohead, Ours, In Flames and Placebo, Lilitu sets out to prove that diversity is a fundamental element in writing valid songs.
With a world filled with stagnation and complacency, Lilitu is trying to do something rarely done. Turn real life into art. Putting their personal experiences directly into the music, they connect with people in a way that most bands today ignore. Breaking all stereotypes and clichÃ©s, Lilitu has made the worldwide buzz about them undeniable.
In today's music scene, it is difficult, if not impossible, to find a melodic, dark, metal band outside of Europe. The Georgia-based Lilitu, however, are one of the few exceptions to this rule. Formed in 1995 by Derek Bonner, Lilitu represents the height of emotional expression. After two successful independent records, Lilitu gets a singing deal with The End. The first of three records was the "The Delores Lesion," in september of 2004. Using razor sharp riffs and compelling melodies "The Delores Lesion" makes the listener hear the honesty, adversity and depth that lie within the music.
Playing with bands like The Kovenant, Opeth, Lacuna Coil, Death By Stereo and Nevermore, proving they can fit in with any audience. Dark yet uplifting. Dynamic yet somber. Aggressive yet beautiful. This is Lilitu.
