One of the new mutants in the evolution of metal music in the world, illet… A modern sound fed by the influence of new genres like NWOAHM, metalcore and numetal; merged clean and aggressive vocals; complex riffs, crushing drums and electronic flavor…
The band was formed by Ozgur Monkul and Kudret Diplen in 2004. The first show ever was made in Kadikoy Anatolian High School.
Starting with the covers of bands like Slipknot and Mudvayne along with their own songs, illet became an attractive high performance image in Turkish metal music arena.
