Bands
Elvellon

From its inception in 2010 on the quintet has stirred up the scene and has enthralled both its growing fan base as well as the music press with a captivating blend of catching guitars, thunderous drums and magnificent orchestration. As a result, renowned national magazines such as Orkus and Sonic Seducer took notice of the highly promising youngsters early on, while German Metal Hammer magazine even dubbed them "heroes of tomorrow". Through their first online singles 'Oraculum´ (2013) and 'Born From Hope´ (2015) - which was accompanied by a masterfully crafted video clip by Mirko Witzki (Any Given Day, Caliban, Deadlock) that almost reached one million views on YouTube within the first year - the band proved that all premature praise had been well-deserved. The 2015 release of their self-produced 5-track EP "Spellbound" marked the first milestone of their career that sent critics from all over Europe into rapture. Live on stage, the synergy of Elvellon's powerfully performed soundscapes and vocalist Nele's angelic voice always strikes home, too, with the result of a variety of celebrated festival gigs over the recent past, including a show at prestigious German M'era Luna Festival.
