H.L. For this kind of symphonic female fronted metal or gothic metal between Nightwish and Xandria there are two criteria for a good album: A soulful voice and catchy songs. Both criteria are fulfilled. The songs are melodic with just the right level of bombast or pathos and a solid punch to keep it metal. And even more important: The singer has a powerful, variable and touching voice, which is really first class! If you do not expect somthing originsl here but a great album, you are just right! Favorite track: Fallen Into A Dream.

loppies16 My first audition to this album was awesome! Great arrangements, wonderful voice! Elvellon is definitely a band that deserves all the attention! Favorite track: The Puppeteer.

chuckles304 I am a total Delain fanboy, and this sounds like it could be "Lucidity"-era Delain music. Wish I'd bought this ages ago. I don't care how formulaic this may sound to some, it's still a rockin good time. Hard to find this genre on Bandcamp. "Silence From the Deep" and "King of Thieves" also favorites. Favorite track: Oraculum.

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: Spellbound
Awaken in the dead of a starlit night Lying dreamful, afraid of leaving this forsaken place My age-old friend
Silence from the deep is rising inside me, Wakes me up and brings me back to life Longing for the day, when I will dare to take a step Beyond these pale walls
A chime breaks the silence of the night A thunder, that drowns every beating of my fragile heart A clockwork of old soars into the whirling sky
And fills me with pure spellbinding fear
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
Only one question will be in the end Eternal silence or purest perfection?
Track Name: Silence From The Deep
Where has the magic spell gone? When did the paintings fade? Why did the music fall silent?
I hear a call from the deep Not far from here Telling me to turn back and wait
The clock strikes louder than my heart beats
What seems long-lost lies still inside of you
Soon the circle’s closed and the veil of night will fall
I walk the path without myself Have I gone astray?
What have I missed to take along with me?
Help me to break this long silence
What seems long-lost lies still inside of you
Soon the circle’s closed and the veil of night will fall
Reach out your hand
There’re yet wonders to behold It is up to you
There’s a morning to create
Track Name: The Puppeteer
Tangled in wires of iron Strangled by strings of despair
The rusted needle of your compass crumbled into dust
You waste of hate are a shame to yourself
The curtain fell
The play begins Your naked carcass is exposed
Dance for the lord of broken souls The one, that sets the rhythm you obey Your life lies in his hands
Hear and fear the mocking child’s laugh
All the marks that you’ve left were swallowed by the tides
You’re nothing more but a ghost from the past
Your life has left you in the dark
Now strings come sprouting from your hands
Give up on this worthless struggle
You’ve delivered your soul to the deepest of black
Let go of your last hopes
From now on the great showmaker will make your lifeless moves
Hear the craving of the doll
One cut will settle this once and for all
Nigh is the end of this dread show
and so the master’s rhythm will stagnate
Now the scissors come to cut your strings
The magic fades away
Track Name: Fallen Into A Dream
As the grand clock sounds the bell
For another day’s evanescence
And the music box rings out It is time to dream again
In the search of an escape
From this everlasting night The melody’s the only thing
To calm down my restless mind
This abstract, endless grace Everlasting wonders welcome me
With a loving embrace
Will they fade as I dare to kiss the dawn?
This world gets blurred by an ancient lullaby
Guides me back to the cradle of all
A lovely tune creates a dream itself
Within I descend to the place I truly belong
Dreams are made of painted scenes
Which can only be seen by my heart
Full of colours and high hopes Hidden for the open eyes
An eternal entity
Between two worlds is what I am
Not enough for flesh and blood
Just more than a brief fantasy
Track Name: King Of Thieves
I dearly miss this wind
Stroked my skin long ago
It lent me air to breath
And brought me precious memories
As the wind moved on I was left behind
Hail to the king of thieves
The taker and creator
Turn the hourglass just three times
And watch the world decay
Once my well ran dry
The wasteland closed in on me
Sand has devoured this site
And forced me to stray
Two turns are done
The last grain’s falling down
The wind will blow again
And carry me along
Track Name: Until Dawn
Rest for this night
The cradle’s not yet too cold
To dream again
Forget all your fears for now
Sleep tight and rest your eyes tonight
Until the break of day
When the clock strikes twelve
You will leave this forsaken place
The singing of the sun will drown this silence
Draws you far into the warming glow
Of your morning’s dawn
To leave, where you’ve been left behind
Means wandering a lonesome road
For one curious heart
Further into a wondrous land
Where the wish you once made
Will come true at last:
You’ll pass the edge of night
Then the deep blue sky
Shows the way out the dark
The promising dawn
Dispels the veil of night

The story will go on
Track Name: Dead-End Alley
Treated like a clockwork 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?
Ungrateful and insolent
Spit on me as long as you can
Glances terrify my mind
Drag me to the edge of despair
Track Name: Shore To Aeon
Awaken in a wondrous dream
Where a river springs from its 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 amid the night waves
The ocean seems so endless
There is no border between the starlit sky
And this never-ending 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
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 reveals itself
As I reach the oceans calm
Where the river floats into the sea
Aeon’s awaiting me
Aeon bears finality
And denies the passenger’s return
Stars and silence carry me
Far into an endless, floating sky
Track Name: Born From Hope
Far back in my childhood In a distant time of bliss
Thoughts and dreams
Have encircled me
Which 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
Rapture turned to loneliness
Joy changed to hatred
To avoid all my fears
I have chosen the path of exile
Track Name: Dreamcatcher
The time has come
The eternal hiding found its end
Now forget all things, that held you back
And face your way ahead
The bravest heart
Beating fast and aches for nameless roads
Listen to its longing words of old
And the wonders of this life
From lasting memories the circle has been tied
To tread the path and spur his bravery
Oh, Keeper of his heart
Preserve his innocence
Fend off all threats
And pave his way to the unknown
Your eager feet
They will carry you to what you seek
Where the answer lies in morning’s dawn
At the salving end of night
Little boy you’ve gone astray
Far in this lonely night
Mind your dreamcatcher
Hold it tight and don’t let go!
