Elenium  


Elenium is yet another fine extreme band from Finland, a country that continues to churn out metal bands from a variety of genres. Their style is best described as either progressive death metal (the progressive term due to some well-placed keyboard work) or perhaps melodic death metal (though they sound nothing like the Swedish-influenced bands often described as melodic death metal). The band is not particularly flashy, forgoing the overly technical playing of some extreme bands in favor of a streamlined, yet still busy, songwriting style. There's a bit of Children Of Bodom, a shade of Opeth, a dash of early Amorphis, yet the band doesn't really sound like any of these three, nor even would describing them as a combination of these bands be appropriate. Rather, Elenium fuses a wide range of influences to create a diverse, yet cohesive sound. For Giving - For Getting is an impressive debut album from a band that has huge potential.
