We are very excited to tell you that we officially signed our first record deal with Reaper Entertainment Europe. We finally found the right label to release our upcoming album worldwide. This is going to be awesome! :D
As you can see in this trailer we started a little party in our rehearsal room right after we signed the deal. Stay tuned and ... don’t fear the reaper! :D
Hello dear friends and Christmas-Elvellonians, Today we’ll get back to you personally with a little video, which shall give you a short glimpse of the upcoming album. However, we would like to give you an understanding of why we unfortunately can’t realize a release this year. We sincerely hope that we can enjoy your patience a little longer after watching. We wish you a merry Christmas from the bottom of our hearts!
By now some time has passed, which we have eagerly used to enhance the album with an extended instrumentation. This includes for example a lot of drumming and dreamy violins, which raise the songs to a new sound level.
To save some time, we have already begun to mix the songs at the same time. Now that the last recordings are done, the completion of the album lies at hand and we are blown away by the result! We can promise: You have never heard Elvellon like this before!
Until we can finally send you the finished CDs, there are still many small and big steps to make. Some of you have already expressed their annoyance or their tormenting curiosity concerning the long and agonizing wait. We apologize for the delay and would like to refer to a soon to be released video in which we say a few words in a more personal way. We will also present you the first results. So be curious! It will be uploaded around the holidays on the usual channels.
After a long time we’ll play our first show at the Long Heavy Night on September 23 in Eschwege. Therefore we’ll pause the work on our album for a short time in order to rehearse appropriately. However, this little interruption comes not at all inconvenient, for it is a welcome change :) Greetings to you from our rehearsal room!
And don’t forget: Already a month later - on the 27th of October - we play together with Haggard at the Rose and Crown Festival in Oberhausen (germany).
Today we have another update video for you, which gives a brief insight into the vocal recordings with Nele. With the completion of the vocal recordings we are once again taking a big step towards the finalisation of the album. The lead vocals are now captured on hard drive and the recordings of the backing vocals will start within the next few days. At the same time, we are still working on a some sounds, refining the orchestrals / keyboards and preparing some special recordings :)
Great news: On October 27, we have the honor of supporting HAGGARD at the Rose and Crown Festival at the ResonanzWerk (Oberhausen). This weekend there is already the chance to buy the tickets cheaper on the Dong Open Air Festival (Germany).
Today we have a little video update for you of the current recordings. Therefore we filmed Gilbert sweating in the studio on a particularly warm day :D He also explains one or two secrets from the studio world.
Today we have a small update of the album production for you: On Wednesday the bass recordings were completed and captured on a hard drive. The rhythm guitars are done, too (video will follow soon). We also sketched the first drafts for the artwork and sent it to the illustrator. The results so far make us extremely happy and we are now convinced that we can take a qualitative step forward from our previous work. We wish you all a nice weekend and we'll be back with news from the studio soon! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mwOzvmcVJc&t=0s
This is absolute madness, folks! :D Last night our Crowdfunding Campaign ended, which you have supported so generously. We can hardly express our endless gratitude in this video. https://youtu.be/IX9UzFnahyA
This Thursday we will finally enter the studio again. Thanks to our supporters on our Crowdfunding campaign, we will start the drum recordings for our first album. Here’s a short clip from the current rehearsals: https://youtu.be/rvIJlILloRg
As most of you might have noticed, the funding goal of our campaign has already been achieved. However this doesn't mean that it's finished! You can still purchase your copy of the album or get one of the other rewards. We can use this income for the production of a music video or a photoshooting. And as many desired, we now offer the album also as a digital download one week before the official release. In addition to the songs, this version also includes the booklet as a PDF-file. You will receive the download link on time by e-mail.
We would like to thank you once again for all your support! Without you, the production of the album would not be possible.
Elvellon wishes you all relaxing holidays in the circle of your loved ones and already a happy new Year 2017. Soon we will start the recordings and keep you updated as usual.

What a day in Elvellon's career! 10 days ago, we launched our Crowdfunding campaign to fund our first album. And today you already managed to break the funding goal of 7,000 €! The flood of emotions we feel is difficult to put into words.
But one thing is certain for us: It is an honor to call you our fans! The degree of fidelity, enthusiasm and willingness to help surpasses our wildest dreams. Without you we would be nothing. Thanks alot!
You were the absolute madness yesterday! Our last concert of the year could not have been better. We can not thank you enough for this wonderful evening. We really don't have such a great audience every time. Special thanks go to the people who have come from further away such as from Paris or Munich. At this point, we must definitely thank our friends of Fourth Circle and Aeranea. Rarely we had so much fun together at backstage. We must repeat this soon.
Wow, what a start of the campaign! After just 48 hours we have already achieved half of our funding goal. And all of this we owe to you! You are amazing! Many, many thanks!
In addition to the rehearsals for this year's final concert, we are still writing on the last songs for the album. Some details are being worked out to give the songs the finishing touches. In the future we will give you more detailed reports on this subject.
But first of all, we want to bring the Crowdfunding campaign to a successful result. And here you - the supporters - can help us one more time: Spread the good news and tell the world about this wonderful project.
Since the release of our first EP Spellbound the demand for our debut album has increased more and more. And since we are still facing every challenge by ourselves without the backing of a record label we need your help now!
The Studio has been booked for January and it is now inevitable: Elvellon will start the recording of their first album very soon!
But first we have to say good bye to 2016. Under the (christmassy) slogan "Stars of the Night", we will once again give everything together with Aeranea and Fourth Circle, our friends from France. Celebrate with us the last gig before the long concert break until the release of the finished album!
Then come to Bollwerk 107 in our hometown Moers and celebrate with the Grailknights and us this gruesome and beautiful festivity!We are eager to support the Knights of Grailham City in their everlasting battle against Dr. Skull and hope to warm up the Battlechoir properly before the battle. After the work is done, we will celebrated the victory at the after-show party.

Overnight our music video for "Born From Hope" has passed the 100,000 mark on youtube. We are very moved and proud that our song has reached so many people in the world during the last six months.Since we are in the heart of the songwriting process, we’re pleased with the fact, that we can draw more energy and strength upon this success for the upcomming album production. All our thanks go to you! And of course to Mirko, who captured these wonderful images.
Although we are working intensively on the album, we will play a handful of selected shows in the summer. One that it is very important to us personally, is the Dong Open Air. Today, the first bands were announced and we are proud to take part. Ticket sales will start this Sunday.
2015 was a year full of surprises in which we took big steps forward. To honour these achievements, we all sat down on a couch, let the cameras roll and just talked about the highlights of the last 12 months without any notes. Now we can present to you the result in a small video, seperated in three parts.
At this point we also want to thank all the nice people, who who have accompanied us along our path and supported us. You are the best! We wish you all a happy 2016!
The wait is over! Finally we can present to you our first music video. During the shoot, we came across a lot of obstacles that we luckily could overcome with the help of some wonderful people. Now we are even more proud of the result. >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmBiw2yCbdw
Although we didn’t take first place in the Best of Unsigned Contest, we had a really great concert in front of an even greater audience :) Fortunately a handful of cameras captured a few moments of this evening and so we can share those memories with you now ► https://youtu.be/ajsyLFmzJB4
After several attempts and cancelled dates the shooting of our first music video finally continues. We don’t want to tell you more at this point. Let yourself be surprised. As we go into shooting, it won't be long. So stay tuned!
