As the sky is overcast with the dark clouds of Nevermore, Elysia seems so distant... Blood runs fresh on the streets, homes lay ruined, and a solitary owl hoots into the endless night... "So it is foretold," the hidden ones chant, "So too shall it be." With these words the final throat is slit, the final scarlet river flows and the final movement in a game as old as the stars takes place. Power changes bloodstained hands, outdated systems are abandoned and a new day dawns on this unhallowed earth. Terra welcomes this with open arms... As do we.
We are AttikRoom. We're that which lurks in the space you've never truly taken the time to explore. We're the voice in your consciousness that screams "But!" only to be silenced. We're the little speck in the painting you never noticed.
And we wanna rule your whole fucking world.
We were born from the ashes of the world. University life bored us so... While our peers drank copiously and suffered in the mornings for their insipid sins we spawned a sound interwoven from hatred and disgust. Lexifer Crowley and Wild Bill met first, and spoke of their love for the darker corners of the musical landscape. Then The Face met Lexifer and Wild Bill, and shared his desire for crushingly heavy, uncompromisingly brutal music. AttikRoom was truly born when the 3 of them plotted this new form of evil from behind glasses in the student bar. Soon enough Lexifer would walk into the deep night and say, aloud, with only WB to hear him, "I spread my wings like a shadow on the autumn moon." So it was that one of the key lyrics in Illuminati Rising would be born. It was the dead of night, the moon was gracing the sky with it's crepuscular presence and autumn was upon them. The stage was set; the demonic trio ready to spread their wings...
...Soon enough, word of this new group of evil-doers would spread. So it was that Breally would come to hear Illuminati Rising, and witness this new inhuman power. The unearthly charms of AttikRoom would ensnare him then and there, and he would join AttikRoom as a singer, a voice of melody among the cacophony of hate, and a guitarist, a contribution to that very cacophony.
However, our story does not end there, my friends. Alas, Brealey's commitments lay elsewhere, and it was Will who would step up to replace him ably. AttikRoom was complete.
I, AttikRoom, take thee, the audience, to be my lawful brothers and sisters in evil. Today, Scarborough, tomorrow, the world.

All we have is the hatred in our hearts.
