Sabine Dunser is known especially from her presence in ERBEN DER SCHOPFUNG, beside the famous Oliver Falk (WELTENBRAND). This time she has her own band but following the same line and, naturally, the female voice is the main feature of ELIS sound. Based on a commercial and digestible Gothic Metal, ELIS insists on electronic elements but using an entertaining and pretty Heavy Metal background. It is a nice album almost danceable and with many Pop trends and from time to time it almost reminds us it has some roots in extreme Metal, especially because of aggressive male vocals (luckily seldom featured in the tracks) that tend to "provoke anger" to those listeners who enjoy melodiousness. I think there is about much of tom-tom, bombastic sound, an exceptional presentation, a satisfactory result but definitely not a great one! Since it is both in English and German, ELIS might reach two different kinds of listeners but it might as well to touch none!
