WILLOWTIP is proud to announce the signing of Italy 's ILLOGICIST . Formed in 1997, " ILLOGICIST is a violent sonic combination of technical ability, rhythmic asymmetry, melodic sickness, and lyrical frustration, created to reflect a dynamic and emotional vision of suffering and introspection". The band is set to enter Aosta , Italy 's Dissonant Studio (owned by ILLOGICIST guitarist/vocalist Luca Minieri) in January 2007 to record their 2nd overall full-length and first for Willowtip, The Insight Eye.

Luca Minieri - Guitars/Vocals
