Elexorien was a self-described "epic battle metal" band
from the Netherlands, releasing a self-titled effort in 2007.
Generally speaking this is somewhat like gothic metal
on overdrive, as there are clear gothic trademarks
(vocal/keyboard styles) but with songs much faster
paced and more aggressive.
The vocals alternate between angelic female voices
and a throaty, harsh male voice, in true gothic metal
At times they wander into symphonic black metal
territory, especially when the male vocalist takes over,
but this isn't quite black metal, at least not in the traditional sense.
They broke up four years after the album's release, in 2011.
