H.L. When you are looking for first class female fronted or gothic metal somewhere between Nightwish and Evanescence you should not miss "Spellbound". ELVELLON's symphonic style is maybe not original but the songs are atmospheric, catchy and finished with just the right portion of pathos. A lot of gothic metal bands try to create emotional impact but only few are so talented to create such a dreamlike and inspiring atmosphere. From zero to the olymp of gothic metal, no weak track here! Favorite track: My Wings.

Oraculum 04:35
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?

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

My Wings 03:53
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

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

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

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
