The music started in 1997, headed by its lead vocalist, lyricist, and guitars, Mike Lila. An Independent Band, formerly named “Burn”, then, changing it to “Emblem of Adversity”, to forming a new group under “Lila Blanca” at present time. “Lila Blanca”- meaning; to live, one must experience death or to die. (from the book of Mark) Having their own music and/or compositions, the band intends to ladder the public’s consciousness over the reality of life, love, and the likes, combined with easy-to-get-lyrics, uncommon notes and patterns, extra ordinary musical arrangements, to having complete understanding of the whole. The band started performing live in several renowned “underground/indie” venues like Club Dredd, Mayrics, The Hobbit House, etc., whom was able to be with other remarkable and respected indie artist/bands such as “Sugar Hiccup”, “Parokya ni Edgar”, “Datu’s Tribe” and more.. on stage. The comeback of the band, in a benefit gig for “Keil Amon” which was held on December 11, 2014 at Conspiracy Bar-Visayas Ave., again, it was during that event that the band had the chance to be part of a good cause and serve by playing its music and give the public a glimpse of what has yet to come. The group is in its highest of highlighting Alternative Rock Music with a dash of Electronica (genre), to further enhancing their own taste for music, exploring the depths and experimenting new sounds, for the love and satisfaction of the crowd. Outstandingly, the band made a release of their very first single, entitled “Ligaw”-a song about love, betrayal and the awakening, while making its way to the Top 10 (reverbnation.com), and progressive. Up-to-date, the group continues to making more dominant music records.
