Elis: News from the Studio

by on Nov.23, 2008, under Metal Music News

 At the moment, Elis vocalist Sandra is recording the vocal tracks for the upcoming album at Mastersound Studio.
Sandra: “It is the first full-length album we are recording together, and an important step for us. For me, this album is something very special because I was able to contribute a lot and I developed a very personal concept for it, even though it will not be a true concept album. I’m having great fun at the studio, and I can’t wait to hold the final result in my hands.” More updates (e.g., the album title) will be revealed shortly.


We decided that the new ELIS record will be named CATHARSIS. We were discussing a lot about what fits best to the stories the songs on our new album tell, and we hat a lot of different options, some of them really quite funny, but when we finally came to the name CATHARSIS it was clear that this says it with one word.
Sandra: “Some time ago, shortly before I joined ELIS, I had to go through a very hard time, physical wise the hardest experience in my life. I was fighting against a severe disease, and while my body was struggling I felt my soul started to go it’s own way. I came to new insights, and started to develop a very intense strength, like I never would have imagined I would be able to, but which was really essential for me at that time. I was taken out of the “real life” for about half a year, and felt like an onlooker, not participating in the real world. With the stories I tell on CATHARSIS I am kind of digesting this period in my life, sharing my feelings, fears and also the things I saw as an “outcast” watching the world. The word. “CATHARSIS” has some different meanings, but for me it represents “the healing of the soul by going through tragedy”.
As I see it now, to see how magic life can be I also had to experience it’s dark side…”
