About

Elvellon

Bombastic Symphonic Metal made in Germany: Elvellon are about to take the world by storm!

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.

Now that the first deal with the aspiring label Reaper Entertainment is inked, the course for Elvellon's conquest is set. Symphonic metal aficionados: Brace yourselves for the definite debut album of the year! 

Nele Messerschmidt

Vocals

Year of birth: 1994

Musical Background:

I come from a musical family where nearly everyone plays an instrument or sings. From a young age I grew up with music and was part of many different musical projects here and there.

Sometime when I was still quite young I found out that singing also functions like a kind of outlet for me and so I began to take my hobby serious, always looking for new musical experiences. One of them was finally Elvellon, something that began as an Intermezzo and than became something bigger and more important to me.

Inspiration:

Inspirations for me are foremost good talks with substance, as well as relaxation and a lot of sun, the sea or a walk through the woods. Also I like to suck in every detail that nobody talks about and sometimes it can be a meaningful dream or a cool beer after a hard days` work.

Gilbert Gelsdorf

E-/A-Guitar

Year of birth: 1988

Musical Background:

Quickly after being born my development was shaped by musical education and many years of classes with different instruments. Over the years this lead to me spending more time in bandpractice than in school. I already had my first metal band Ravian when I was 14 and I have stayed pretty true to that genre. 2010 we shared the rehearsal room with a band called Elvellon. Two years later I then joined them.

Inspiration:

Where it comes from exactly, I can only guess. Probably for the most part from the music that I listen to. Be it metal, movie soundtracks or folk: Music always inspires me. And then there is the phenomenon that only occurs when I´m holding an instrument in my hand. You suddenly get kissed by a muse and you think to yourself: „Wow, that sounds really awesome. What did I just play?“ :)

Maddin Klüners

Drums and Percussion

Year of birth: 1991

Musical Background:

I think my musical interest got me when I was about 12 years old. Because I was always very excited by drums in some soundtracks or songs and I always liked to beat on all kinds of different things, I decided to actually start playing the drums properly.

At the beginning of 2010 I got the offer from Pascal to play with him in the fully equipped rehearsal room of Ravian, a band from Moers. Of course I didn´t let this opportunity slip by and so we met many times during the week, in which I really started to play the drums. Out of this small and inconspicuous idea grew regular rehearsals and with that the foundation for what was to become Elvellon.

Inspiration:

Inspiration in my eyes is a word that can have an endless amount of facettes and sources. In my case it´s already things like the sunrise or sunset, wide open green, waters and in general everything in connection with nature. Also it´s movies, music, sounds, smells, places that I know from my youth, people and so much more that can take my worries and the negativity about a lot of things away and let me see new „horizons“.

Pascal Pannen

Keyboard/ Piano

Year of birth: 1992

Musical Background:

I do not really have a sophisticated background, because I never went to music lessons or had private ones. Since I started making music with 13 years I learned from watching professional musicians and mostly taught myself. In those days I mostly grabbed a bass and played my favourit songs. Through what I played I gained more and more knowledge about musical theory like for example scales. Over the years I practised like this until I decided to learn the Keyboards and Piano. What began as a hobby has developed to a proper passion, which I can live out to the maximum in the band.

Inspiration:

I let myself be inspired by feelings mostly, be it the nicer ones or the bad. To form a completely new story out of your own memories and to internalize every stimulus while doing that. This is helped of course by listening to your favourite music or to simply take a nap.

Philipp A. Kohout

E-Bass

Year of birth: 1992

Musical Background:

My musical way began when I was a kid with the drum lessons I took. With 14 I then discovered the guitar for me – but first only on the plastic instruments with Guitar Hero. When I got my first electric guitar I practised for hours on those six chords. Over the years I played in many different bands in the genres rock and metal. Later I joined the band Ravian from Moers as a guitarist and one day Gilbert, who also played for Ravian, asked me if I could imagine doing the E-Bass for Elvellon – that I could.

Inspiration:

Inspiration always requires for me that something really touches me. In absolutly all cases that is true with rain and stormy weather, because my parents always let me and my now-deceased brother play outside in the rain and storm. Big personal blows, philosophy, injustice and an overwhelming form of sorrow or fear also spark my creativity and fantasy. And at last I let myself be inspired by movies and videogames, be it from my youth or new releases.
