Australian metallers ELYSIAN stream entire debut album ‘Wires of Creation’ online

Melbourne based melodic deathers ELYSIAN, have streamed their stunning debut album, ‘Wires of Creation’, for FREE today, via metal website No Clean Singing. The album storms its way through eleven tracks of hook laden, flowing dark melodies, technical solo interludes and snarlingly evil vocal work and is released worldwide on Monday, March 26th.

The band are keen to not be lumped in as just another melodic death metal band, as guitarist Gabe Hutchinson explains: “Our main goal was to create a dynamic experience from start to finish whilst maintaining heavy songs. Overall it's a really heavy melodic death album but at times soars into things like an instrumental Pink Floyd-esque song with an electronic feel or a intricate percussive section. As a band, we grew up listening to music that incorporated acoustic ballads with blazing shred songs all in the one album, and it wasn't called progressive; it was called a good album. Some bands aim to have their songs sound disjointed by dramatically switching between genres; that’s not what we have done, the whole album flows, it attacks and it releases, its aggressive but gives you time to breath and take it in.”
