||Elizium are a heavy metal band formed in 1991 in Zoetermeer, Netherlands. Heavily influenced by the many original metal bands that entered the scene in the 80's and 90's the group of friends decided to start a band devoted to making emotion-laden music.
Along with bands like Lake of Tears, Tiamat and Paradise Lost, Elizium is credited with having it's own distinctive sound, based on clean vocals, heavy guitars and many melodic elements.
