Illusions of Grandeur “IOG”, is a Theatrical Hard Rock/Fantasy Metal band based in Lancaster, PA. IOG took the PA and NJ scenes by storm, debuting “The Siren Saga” live show. The Siren Saga is a story of the journeys, perils, and triumphs of the Siren and her warriors. The story mixes facts and fiction combining Greek and Norse Mythology, Sirens and Archangels. The debut album “The Songs of the Siren” was released 8/30/2019 .
The band was formed in 2015 by Maggie Carlton and CM Carroll. They began touring and playing shows in 2016. The band was started to play their own music and support my vocal style. CM and Maggie have been in bands together before, but we wanted to take things in our own direction.
Their music conveys ideas of Greek and Norse mythology, mixed with double entendres to show actual emotions and experiences of life.
