Biography:Scarcely another band among the German-speaking Alternative /(Dark)Wave-scene has polarized media and audience within the last eighteen years as much as Illuminate.
Illuminate manage to combine classical elements, dance rhythms, electronic sound collages, romantic piano parts and heavy guitars without being unfaithful to their typical, unmistakable sound.
After nineteen years of band history, 14 studio albums, world-wide life-performances, and having an enormous fan-base, Illuminate are one of the most successful acts of the Alternative / Dark Wave-segment.
