Vocalist Clarence Chong says: “We’re extremely proud to have released our second album ‘In Aevum Et Illustrata’. This is our strongest efforts till date in terms of production and song-writing. Over the course of 15 years, we have matured a lot both as a human being and as a musician. We hope to offer our listeners our brand of extreme music and our interpretation of the original Illuminati formed by Adam Weishaput in 1776.”
