Excelsis - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.




Excelsis have always gone their own way. Since 1997 they have been playing their metal, which they enrich with untypical instruments such as alphorn, "Bäsechlopfe" or "Dachchänneli". The result is "helvetic folk power metal". The mixture of old US power-metal and elements of Folk music has not only resulted in good reviews in magazines and fanzines for Excelsis, but has also founded a solid fan base, which reaches as far as Brazil and Poland. On the The Legacy Of Sempach the Bernise metal heads are again thematizing a piece of Swiss history. The heavy riffs, a great diversity of song structures and the unbelievable atmosphere turn this album into a must-have cd for every fan of epic metal such as Blind Guardian or Subway To Sally.
