When four eminent Bandaacehnian extreme musicians gathered and forging a new band, the flock would draw much attention from the local metal scene. Former Saksi Bisu‘s frontman and bass player, Ais and Valent, met Daniel (guitar) and Avis (keyboard), forming a new band called Ilios, a Greek word for Sun.
“We want this band radiating its light across the universe. Like the sun!” Ais told acehmusician.org about the band’s name philosophy. Ambitious, determination and self motivated are the best characters to become a superb musician.
Ais told about the idea of creating this new band: “We had to give up the Saksi Bisu’s name. As it was given by its former vocalist before me, he demanded to take it back. So be it! We decided to dissolve the band and created a new one in April 2013.”
Unfortunately not all of Saksi Bisu members wanted to join the new band.
“Pondeck doesn’t want to join as a full member of Ilios, but he will help us by playing as additional drummer until we find a permanent one.”
Daniel was a well-known metal guitarist from Lhokseumawe. He helps other members creating the group’s musical direction as a progressive death-metal band.
