about

Elvellon Germany

Elvellon is a very promising newcomer-band from the German Symphonic Metal scene. Through a combination of orchestral sound, hard riffs and the extraordinary voice of frontwoman Nele the five musicians hit right at the heart of the listener. Even though they have clearly defined musical roots, Elvellon try not to serve a specific scene, but rather let themselves be guided by the music itself. ... more

Track Name: Oraculum
Responsible for life and time
the clock ticks calm but straight
it's winded up by fate itself
to lead all things as set

Dreams sprout tall so beautiful
to wither and fall off
Old and dusty, creaky and rough
This clockwork will not rest

Gone and banned from home again
the riddles answer in my hand
Forsaken
but this way ends just with the life of mine

A path as long as burdensome
to find my salvation
From haunting questions, disillusions,
fears, that veil my mind

Acting like a blinded sage
but feeling like a child
My eyes set to the horizon
searching for my fate

Gone and banned from home again
the riddles answer in my hand
Forsaken
but this way ends just with the life of mine

Only one question will be in the end
Eternal silence or pure perfection?
Track Name: Born From Hope
Far back in my childhood
In a distant time of bliss
Thoughts and dreams
have encircled me
and I never wanted to miss

Nothing more but memories
are the days of unconcern,
the scent of lovely daisies
now gone but not yet lost

Born from Hope
Trails to the horizon
The source of all good in me
calls on my heart
not risen to be a memory

Childhood's like a treasure
to protect for a lifetime
Like the gift to overlook
dark chapters on my way

Born from Hope
Trails to the horizon
The source of all good in me
calls on my heart
not risen to be a memory

Rapture turned to loneliness,
joy changed to hatred
to avoid all my fears,
I have chosen the path of exile
Track Name: My Wings
So many things I have seen
Only cold reality
Wishing for an angel on my shoulder

Will there be hope for me?
For my dream's veracity
Grant me my wish to fly away

Since you've left this world of mine
to a place, where I can't follow
Thoughts are circling constanly
around our reckless time

Only now I understand
the greatness of your sudden loss,
of what you have meant to me
before

Spread my Wings
Show me where the sky is glowing
Let me fly – high above
Just let me know that you're still here
Every step I make, every breath I take
I miss the strengh you gave in life,
I miss the strength you gave to me

But life is telling me
time runs ahead unchangingly

Nothing will turn it back
What you've taught shall dawn in me
I take a page out of your book of life

Spread my Wings
Show me where the sky is glowing
Let me fly – high above
Just let me know that you're still here
Every step I make, every breath I take
I miss the strengh you gave in life,
I miss the strength you gave to me
Track Name: Dead-End Alley
Treated like a clock-work-toy without a soul
Or a spark of the right to exist
Cherished like the sunrise
Punished like a hound dog
You don’t have to play innocent

All of your kind took my peace from me
And let me drown in my morass of hate
But it is not my fault, that I answer in anger
When you say there is no choice

Spare me from your truth
And shield me from the way of the world
Oh, It seems, I deserve this fate
If life is all about the path that you forced me to go
I will bear all burdens of my choice

Born into this world and convicted from the start,
For ill deeds, that I’ve never done
Tossed into the clockwork,
Torn up by the gear-wheels
You forgot to leave a way out

I’ve never intended to treat you as cruelly
As you try to chain me this way
What Is it, I have done, that the world ejected me?
Revenge for an asserted sin?

Spare me from your truth
And shield me from the way of the world
Oh, It seems, I deserve this fate
If life is all about the path that you forced me to go
I will bear all burdens of my choice

Ungrateful and insolent
Spit on me, as long as you can

Glances terrify my mind,
drag me to the edge of dispair

Spare me from your truth
And shield me from the way of the world
Oh, It seems, I deserve this fate
If life is all about the path that you forced me to go
I will bear all burdens of my choice
Track Name: Shore To Aeon
Awaken in a wonderous dream
where a river springs form it's head
A boat rests on a quiet shore
and staggers in the evening tide

Somewhere from afar I can hear whispers,
bid me to cast anchor a-mid the night waves
The ocean seems endlessly, There is no border between the starlit sky and this neverending sea.
Silent eternity

The journey’s casting off into the blue
following the endless stream
There's no helmsman, there is no oar
Just an old, blind passenger

Somewhere from afar I can hear whispers,
bid me to cast anchor a-mid the night waves
The ocean seems endlessly, There is no border between the starlit sky and this neverending sea.
Silent eternity

Weeping willows welcome me
And their blooming branches cover the stream
The Sunsets last red rays fade away
as the warmth is passing me by

Withered leaves dance through the air
And the treetops turning drab and bald
Nightly blue reaveals itself
As I reach the oceans calm

As the river floats into the sea
Aeon’s awaiting me

Somewhere from afar I can hear whispers,
bid me to cast anchor a-mid the night waves
The ocean seems endlessly, There is no border between the starlit sky and this neverending sea.
Silent eternity

Aeon bears finality
And denies the passengers return
Stars and silence carry me
Far into anendless floating sky
