Illune was born in december 2006 from the ashes of symphonic progressive metal band "Polimnia", for common will of vocalist Danilo Romano, keyboardist Nazareno De Luca and Drummer Lamberto Giuliano, to give life to an alternative project more experimetal, searching new sonorities. The 3 musicians left Polymnia to give body and soul to this new project. In the next month seven strings guitar player Mario Zeoli and bass player Stefano Troisi join the band!!! So they start to write own music and play live. In the course of time Illune change keyboardist Nazareno with Pellegrino Ciricco for all 2008 and in the april 2009 Giuseppe Sarno joins the band as definitive keyboardist. In the middle of 2009 they complete first selfproduct demo "Moonless" and play on the second stage of Metal Camp 2009 in tolmin,Slovenia.After a break, Band re-starts its work: Change drummer Lamberto with Gabriele Beatrice and change bassist Stefano with Alessandro Zeoli, Mario's brother.
