Let me start by saying that I'm not to crazy about Dark/Gothic/Swedish opera Metal. I like it from time to time, listen to 1 or 2 songs & that is it. This band got me hook from the start. Their sound is thick & heavy but at the same time fluid & smooth, very well produce. A great mix of different sound elements are arrange in such mater that make them sound full & larger-than-life. Her voice is beautiful but powerful at the same time. The preview clips on this page don't do them justice because their melodies are not repetitive so the clip that you listen to is not the whole song. What I'm trying to say is, give the a listen and judge for your self. You can check them out at their myspace page were the have full songs. [...]
A well deserve 5 out of 5!!!

I prefer the "lighter side" of the Symphonic Metal genre, and for the most part, this album fits the bill. Don't be put off by the spooky cover-art or the rather melodramatic title. There's nothing particularly grim, bleak, harsh, or "hardcore" about this music. It's soulful rock-music with a slightly ethereal or mystical touch. Some songs have a harder edge than others. To my ears, the singer's voice has an almost country or classic-rock tinge to it, which makes the album more approachable. There's no grunting or screaming. This is enjoyable rock-music with the occasional heavy-metal guitars or kooky sound effects, including some '80s-sounding keyboard or synth touches. The singer's voice is the best and strongest aspect of this album.

Unlike the fast, frantic, hard-driving sound of some symphonic metal bands, I find this album a bit more downtempo, more moody and contemplative. Rather than conveying a dramatic, operatic feeling that gets your heart racing, this music is more introspective, to me. That's a good thing, not a criticism.

All in all, a not especially memorable but palatable and enjoyable goth-tinged rock sound.

Every song on this album is good. If you like the samples, you'll love the full songs. There are strong vocals and great rocking melodies. My personal favorite is "Dreamer" which is fairly simple, but really rocks.
There is just the female voice -- there is no male "growling" or death choirs like in some metal songs. For some people, that makes a difference (either good or bad), so I thought I would mention that.
I look forward to more from this group. I recommend it.

A very good album which ever way you look at it. All eleven songs are well arranged and produced. Christianna has a very powerful and pleasant vocal range. If you like "evanescence" and "we are the fallen", then Elysion comes under the same genre. No comparison here because they all have their own unique approach to their own songs and style. This is a band where you crave for more.

EDIT on 4/22/2012.
Still loving this album. Everything I said below still holds true after many plays.
-----------------------------

I'm a huge Nightwish fan and have always loved Tarja's voice. It has a pleasant power that a think a lot of the other female fronted metal bands lack. I have to say that I didn't expect to hear anything that I liked as much as that until now.

This album is strong throughout with a lot of catchy songs with strong melody. I made the comparison with Nightwish but I can't say that this is metal per se (and I'm a metal head from way back) but the singer's voice is so beautiful it just pulls you into the music. If you want an album for technical guitar wizardry you're not going to find it here but who cares. These songs are enjoyable to listen to. The guitarist uses a more bluesy solo style and the band often makes use of keyboard and synth elements but it's not depressing like some of the more goth metal which is why it's difficult to categorize their sound. The only reason I could think that someone could compare this to gothic metal is that the song structures are similar and the rhythm guitar has that same shredded legato sound as goth metal does.

I really like this. I normally don't even do reviews on albums but this one was different enough for me to want to review it. I keep coming back to the singer because she's so good. She has power in her voice like Tarja but without the operatic element. The rest of the band has good musicianship but it is clear who the star of this group is. This is a very strong first album. I'll be waiting to see what they come up with next.

I'm writing this review on the first play-through of the album so I'll try and come back for an update if my impressions change after a few more times listening.

This was a very well concieved debut form this group, and I like the style of vocals and the Instrumentation of thier symphoninc metal sound, hard driving, and well produced. They although are not one of my very favorites, they are amoung some of the best new Symphonic Metal Bands and thier sound is addictive, and great.

I came across this band looking at "customers also bought" here on Amazon. I really like it! Very energetic and melodic, beautiful voice. Reminds me most closely of Delain.

Being an old rocker or maybe I should say a music aficionado loving all types of music, I love coming across new bands. These four artists from Greece have a good solid sound for Goth Metal/Alternative Metal genre. You may say they sound a little like Evanescence, maybe, or perhaps like Lacuna Coil but Elysion has their on sound. Nice deep heavy bass, kicks and Christianna's voice makes it all work.

If you like all types of music like me or you are only into one genre such as Goth Metal, ya gotta give this band a listen. I'm really into two of the tracks Weakness In Your Eyes and Erase Me.

Check 'em out, like your mom used to say, "How do you know you don't like it till you try it!".
