ELYOSE was formed by Ghislain Henry (bass) and Justine Daaé (vocals) in 2009. The band is leading today the female fronted Gothic-Industrial-Metal scene from France. They are from Paris and this 4-piece presents a unique sound and crushing show.
After many shows as support with Therion (2012), Tarja Turunen (2014), Stream of Passion (2015), The Birthday Massacre and Sirenia (2017) and successful headliner shows in Paris, the band released their 3rd full-lenght album « Reconnexion » in September 2018, still as independant artists.
ELYOSE raised the whole funding to record and produce it through Indiegogo via their fans. « Reconnexion » features the vocals of legend Mark Jansen (Epica – Mayan) on the dark industrial metal track, « Psychosis ».

In the middle of the 90s, Gothic Metal reached its peak with legendary and unforgettable releases of TIAMAT, MOONSPELL, THERION as well as from the first “female fronted”-acts like THEATRE OF TRAGEDY and THE GATHERING. After the turn of the millenium, bands like NIGHTWISH, WITHIN TEMPTATION and EVANESCENCE developed the genre further and added their symphonic direction.

Impressed and influenced by both sides, Mirko Montresor from Bolzano, founded ALIGHT, after he made his first experiences with the melodic death/black metal band VOICES OF DECAY some years before. Mirko never set any stylistic boundaries, adding Electro and Industrial as well as Dark Wave parts to the melodic and dreamful sound of his brainchild ALIGHT.
After the first concerts, original singer Roberta Staccuneddu (ex-EVENFALL) got replaced by Mariangela Demurtas, who went to Norway in order to become the new TRISTANIA singer after one year with ALIGHT. A first contstancy came with entry of Sabina Spagnoli, with whom ALIGHT finaly entered the studio, to record their debut album “Don’t Fear The Revenge”, which was releaed in 2009 and included a guest appearance by THEATRE OF TRAGEDY vocalist Nell Sigland. Right after the release, ALIGHT played two European tours, alongside SAMSAS TRAUM and DORNENREICH as well as numerous single shows supporting a.o. SOULFLY, BLACK STONE CHERRY, DARKWELL and NOVEMBRE.
Although ALIGHT were on their way up, new line-up changes (guitar player Eddi Crocco and bassist Elena Donolato leaving the band) and work-related commitments set the band’s career back again, until their current members Roberto Sieff (guitar, since 2011), Monica Perulli (bass, since 2013) and Catia Borgogno (vocals, since 2016) entered the game, with whom the new songmaterial got completed. Now, ALIGHT are finally ready to strike and unleash their second record “Spiral Of Silence”, which will be released worldwide on their new label EL PUERTO RECORDS, on april 27, 2018. “I would say that “Spiral Of Silence” is the evolution of our first album. We have worked on many aspects by exploring new techniques, expanding our musical horizons and adapting them to our style. Even the sounds have evolved: thanks to technological progress we have found ways to make “Spiral of Silence” sound even more interesting than our previous album”, commented Mirko.
The band already put a lot of effort into the pre-production, which was handled by Waldemar Sorychta (MOONSPELL, TIAMAT, SAMAEL a.o.), who helped the band to improve the composition and arrangements. The twelve jewels got finally recorded and mixed by Marco Barusso (LACUNA COIL a.o.), and masted by Marco D’Agostino (LACUNA COIL a.o.).
Once again, ALIGHT are proud to annouce another prominent guest, which is Andrea Ferro of their fellow-countryman LACUNA COIL, who can be heared in “The Shame”. On top of this, some string parts were recorded by Giovanni Lanfranchi (CAYNE), adding an organic feeling towards the record.
For their first single “The Portal” the four members of ALIGHT produced an impressing video clip, along with well known Patric Ullaeus (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR a.o.). “It was an incredible experience, a dream come true! We wanted to focus on the band playing “live” while giving some hints about the lyrics. The opening scene (intro) and the final scene was shot in red square in Moscow, the rest of the video was shot in Gothenburg”, reveals the drummer.

“There is real magic in this world! The soul is asking for it! We just need to listen with love and courage inside us and what you’ll find deep inside, then we will find in the outside world!….” – Manu Savu
Bio Crossing Eternity is a Romanian – Swedish metal/rock band founded in 2017 by experienced musicians who are truly passionate in the way they approach music. Starting with the recording of their first studio album, “Rising World”, the band members aspired to an organic, old school sound, resisting the temptation of an over production. The adventure started in the summer of 2017, when Manu, the band’s guitarist and composer entered the studio with a new band in mind a lots of good song ideas. On the way, the rest of the band joined the process of recording and producing, working until everything was well done, in January 2018.
“Composing the music for this album was like an inner journey for me, almost like a sort of a confession, a deep search of the soul, back and forth, a connection with the mostly unseen, sensitive world’s symbols and metaphors, an essential part from our original existence. This album is a continuous act of honesty, a musical statement between what we can see and what we can’t, a story bordering our touchable and magical worlds. It was beyond any mercantile approach and my vision was beautifully supported by my bandmates. We tried to dial down our virtuosity spurts to obtain a more direct and sincere approach” – declared Manu Savu, the guitarist and songwriter of the album.
“Recording this album was the most challenging vocal experience of my life. It brought back the times me and Manu were playing in a rock band, with all the jokes and high energy. The serious effort made me use a lot of techniques and ways of expression I thought I lost or never use again. This is a great achievement and definitely our best work together, in a time I stopped believing in magic. It is something cosmos related in this, it must be. I can’t wait to be on stage with these guys.” – says Berti Barbera, the band’s singer.
“To be one in this band is big for me. Playing with these guys is amazing. I am really looking forward to this, to be out there and play those fantastic songs with these fantastic guys and musicians” – says Uffe Tillman, the Swedish part of the band.
“Rising World” album blends elements of modern metal with psychedelic soundscapes alluding to the innocence of the 70s’ rock music. The album contains thirteen epic songs, widely varied as composition and arrangement. The lyrics are a natural extension of this musical experience and they are tales of a spiritual journey. At times they talk about the invisible side of the world, other times they speak of fairytale magic characters. Human nature and the causal dynamic of human interactions are also among the approached topics.
Even if the name of the band is new, it’s members are serious professional, with a 25-30 years experience on the battlefield, a time span in which they had the opportunities of approaching different genres and styles, from rock/metal/progressive to blues/jazz/funk, both on stage and in the studio. They also enjoyed the privilege of sharing the stage with big names like Uriah Heep, Ten years After, Scorpions, Larry Coryell, Blood, Sweat and Tears and many more. The band’s main purpose is to expand the boundaries this time and play worldwide, finding opportunities to make their music known and appreciated in as many countries as possible. And of course, spread some magic!
