27 Listicle Series: Lillye

 

Lillye-2018-band-photo-02

The alternative metal band is fronted by Virginia Lillye, who held leading roles in European theater productions such as Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar, Grease, and Fame. We also released a new, Mortal Kombat inspired video for the album’s first single entitled Run.

We asked Christian Lauria (guitarist) who her Top Five Guitarists are…

My Top 5 guitarists:

1. Dimebag Darrell (Pantera). All round heavy rocking master. Lived and breathed the music and had power and passion as a player to go with his stellar lead work and primal concrete riffs.

2. Eddie Van Halen (Van Halen). Shifted the goalposts for guitar playing with his dazzling fretboard wizardry. His rhythm playing and chord voicings are the equal of his lead playing. Always exciting to listen to.

3. Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath).
The Prince of Darkness for heavy riffs. Riffs that are as powerful as the day they you first heard them. Genre defining pioneer of heavy music.

4. Brian May (Queen).
Unequalled when it comes to layering guitar parts. Also has a swag of killer riffs and the band so many killer songs. Knows when to rock and when to serve the mistress.

5. Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme). Amazing phrasing. His riffs are groovin,rockin and full of melody (we forgive the More than Words bit). Always dug his writing and always floored by his solo chops.

Australian rockers Lillye will release their debut full-length album entitled Evolve on May 18, 2018 via Eclipse Records
