Madeleine´s passionated, crisp clear singing vocals with Rikard´s beastlike deep growl unclean backing vocals in combination with the powerful symphonic music makes this band into an excellent combination of powerful sound and ambience in one whole package. The production this band has created is one of the most impressing ones i have seen in a long time with the thought of how such a short time this band actually has existed on the Swedish metal horizon. This band has massive potential! A band you absolutely shall not miss if you love metal music!
Swedish Metal has yet another star arising on the Swedish Metal horizon called, ELEINE! RATE: 5/5 WAR METAL SWEDEN – Wictoria Olofsson
