Lilitu managed three albums in their career, but it has been a sometimes frustrating run for the band, as their style is hard to pin down and certainly not a popular sound in their hometown of Atlanta, or even the US in general for that matter. Memorial, the middle of the three releases, combines some Swedish-styled melodic death metal with a dark, gothic doom sense, resulting in a brooding, adventurous sound, with vocalist Derek Bonner alternating tortured shrieks with a surprisingly well-developed clean singing voice. After continual problems finding a record label, The End Records came to the rescue for their third album, the well-received Delores Lesion, released in 2004. Soon afterward, Bonner and guitarist Jason Piona recruited new members and formed Blood Promise, which may or may not still be around.
