Crowdfunding successfully ended

It’s once again a small miracle! After 90 days our crowdfunding campaign on Startnext ended and we simply have no words! We were able to achieve more than 200% of the traget amount thanks to you only: 3.530 €
We are honored and can now start the production our first Live-DVD. Of course we’ll continue working on the Blu-ray version as well.
You are the best fans a band could wish for!
Thank you for all your support!

The end is near!

Dear friends,
The end of our crowdfunding campaign is getting closer and we couldn’t be happier with the current result: Also this time, as with our Until Dawn campaign, we were able to reach almost 200% of the target amount. You can’t imagine what that feels like.
At the moment we are still working on releasing a Blu-Ray version. Unfortunately, we can’t offer them anymore in this crowdfunding, but we will stay tuned and hope for a Blu-Ray release next year. 
We recently found a partner who actively supports us in this matter. Because publishing a Blu-Ray is unfortunately much more expensive and expensive than a DVD. We will also consider a way that all those who have participated in crowdfunding get the chance to buy the Blu-Ray at a discounted price on release. You can expect more news soon.
If you want to get a DVD now, you should hurry up. The crowdfunding campaign will only run until the 1st of November.

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 shows at prestigious German M'era Luna Festival and Wacken Winter Nights.

After the first deal with the aspiring label Reaper Entertainment was inked, the course for Elvellon's conquest was set and things came thick and fast for them:Thanks to a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign, which reached almost double the funding goal, the band was able to finance their debut album ‘Until Dawn’.

Within weeks of its release, it was sold about 2000 times so that re-pressing of ‘Until Dawn’ hat to commence only three months later. Uplifted by both the fans’ and the journalists’ outstandingly positive feedback Elvellon will carry on their conquest at this year’s Metal Hammer Paradise festival in November as well as at Rock Fest Barcelona 2019, Metalfest Plzeň in Czech Republic and many other concert venues all over Europe. As far as milestones are concerned, there’s no end in sight!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
