new album form Lichtenstein based band ELIS
and a very pleasant
my opinion. However I wasn’t exactly thrilled when I received this
promo-CD… first of all because I wasn’t familiar with the music
ELIS. And Gothic Rock and Gothic Metal isn’t usually my cup of tea…
but this release entitled “Griefshire” took me by surprise.
music reminds me of bands like Leaves' Eyes and Sengir and so do the
beautiful vocals from Sabine Dünser. Well,
to be honest I was a little disappointed at first but
it manages to earn the listeners ear after a couple of spins and now
numerous listens later I really like this album a lot.
songs are catchy and memorable and Sabine’s voice rules. The
musicianship is great too and the production is top-notch. So what,
many will say, this isn't anything we haven't heard dozens of time
before, but if you’re into Gothic Metal with female vocals I
really think you should check this band and
this album out.
I have some bad news. After Sabine Dünser had finished her vocal
tracks she passed away after suffering a cerebral haemorrhage at the
early age of 29. Let
me express my condolence to her family & friends. Rest in peace,
