More information: The Illusion's Reckoning is the debut album from project band, Mantra Vega, founded by Heather Findlay (former lead vocalist/co-writer with Mostly Autumn) and Dave Kerzner (Sound of Contact).
"The Illusion's Reckoning is a concept album which flows more like a film score than a more typically linear piece. The album's journey is painted with far reaching audio moodscapes, which in their diversity, purposely echo thoughtful lyrical themes. The album is delivered in a predominantly crossover-progressive rock package, but at times takes on a hard rock, contemporary, retro, and even acoustic, folksy twist…"
