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.

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.

Spellbound 04:04
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
2.
Oraculum 04:29
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?
3.
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
4.
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
5.
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
6.
7.
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
8.
Until Dawn 06:09
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
9.
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
10.
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
11.
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
12.
Dreamcatcher 04:26
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!

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
