The Elysian Fields

Founded as a duo in the mid-nineties, Greek metallers The Elysian Fields have released four albums in their career thus far. At one point they were on the Wicked World (Earache subsidiary) label (a bit of an odd signing, this is not a typical Earache band), that association lasting for one album before their signing to Black Lotus. On 12 Ablaze, their third album, their style might be described as two parts doomdeath (general song structures, deathy vocals) and one part gothic metal (piano interludes, sweeping keyboards, violins), at times quite engaging, though at other times things drag a bit. Apparently they’ve taken a bit of a techno direction with their most recent album, Suffering G.O.D. Almighty.
