Review Summary: Great symphonic metal album. Good orchestration, great guitars. A little bit too much like Nightwish.

Review in English :
Until Dawn by Elvellon. This 2018 album contains 8 tracks and only 01:00:53 of music. According to Google Music it is categorized rock I heard last week this band on the radio Prog Rock and Metal (PRM), here is their site: http://www.progrockandmetal.net/. I liked what I hadheard and I promised myself to make a crack of this album. We have many similarities or influences with their contemporaries that is, Nightwish, Xandria, Within Temptation, etc. For me, the style of Elvelonne would be symphonic metal that carries towards the progressive metal, the power metal and even sometimes trash metal. The strength of this album is the power of their orchestral and cinematic arrangements. Unlike Nightwish, the guitar is much more elaborate and present. We feel the metal knowledge of the band young members. The mix is excellent and uniform. Which is difficult when the guitar is more technical and at the same time we have the presence of a heavy orchestration. The personality of the singer is much more defined in slow songs than fast. Indeed, the elements to improve from my point of view would be as follows. The singer sometimes sings too much like Nightwish singers. In addition, certain arrangements, parts of piano as well as flute looks a lot like the arrangements of Nightwish, often like the album Imaginaeirum. On the other hand, we integrate good electronics, guitar solos are very well composed and superior to those to which we are accustomed in this style. The melodies on some pieces (3,4, 5,6, 10 and 12) are excellent both in regards the voice, the rhythm guitar or the solos. We also feel the influence of world music, maybe Myrath, especially at track 6, which also reminds me of the Jungle Ride of Fish. Finally, a disappointment on this album is the finals of songs that are too often similar and the final of the final song of the album that does not live up to the set of the album. Finally, there are one keyboard solos (only track 12), I would have liked to hear more.
Review in French :
Until Dawn par Elvellon. Cet album de 2018 contient 8 titres et seulement 01:00:53 de musique. Selon Google Music il est catégorisé comme rock, j’ai entendu la semaine dernière ce groupe sur la radio Prog Rock and Metal (PRM), voici leur site : http://www.progrockandmetal.net/. J’avais bien aimé ce que j’avais entendu et je me suis promis de faire une crique de cet album. On sent plusieurs similarités ou influences avec leurs contemporains c’est-*-dire Nightwish, Xandria, Within Temptation, etc. Pour moi, le style de Elvelonne serait métal symphonique qui porte vers le métal progressif, le powermétal et même certaines fois le métal trash. La force de cet album est la puissance de ces arrangements orchestraux et cinématiques. Contrairement * Nightwish, la guitare est beaucoup plus élaborée et présente. On sent la connaissance du métal des jeunes membres de ce groupe. Le mix est excellent et uniforme. Ce qui est difficile lorsque la guitare est plus technique et qu’il y a en même temps présence d’une orchestration lourde. La personnalité de la chanteuse se définit beaucoup plus lors des morceaux lents que des morceaux rapides. En effet, les éléments * améliorer * mon point de vue seraient les suivants. La chanteuse chante parfois trop comme les chanteuses de Nightwish. De plus, certains arrangements, parties de piano ainsi que de flute ressemble beaucoup aux arrangements de Nightwish, souvent comme l’album Imaginairum. Par contre, on intègre bien l’électronique, les solos de guitare sont très bien composés et supérieurs * ceux auxquels nous sommes habitués dans ce style. Les mélodies sur certaines pièces (3,4, 5,6, 10,12) sont excellentes tant en ce qui concerne la voix, la guitare rythmique ou les solos. On sent aussi l’influence de la musique du monde, peut-être * Myrath, particulièrement * la piste 6, qui me rappelle aussi la chanson Jungle Ride de Fish. Finalement, une déception sur cet album est les finales des chansons qui sont souvent similaires et la finale de l’album qui n’est pas * la hauteur de l’ensemble de l’album. Finalement, on retrouve peu de solos de clavier (seulementpiste 12), j’aurais aimé en entendre plus.
