Staff review by

Classic Monster of Obscene Productions! Highly Recommended

So, I was looking for bizarre/Technical bands on the Internet, some guy told me to go for !T.O.O.H! and Lykathea Aflame, I actually don't recall his name, but thanks to that fellow I found 2 of the most talented bands in the metal scene, I reviewed the first name a couple of months ago, now, after a lot of people asked for this, it's time for me to Review "Elvenefris".

Rating: 10 Proof that there is magnificent and absolutely jawdropping music still hidden underground. Essential listen and a one of a kind album.
Baz Anderson - 18.04.2010 at 14:13  
  Yep, quite right. A hidden gem of an album.

Rating: 10 Absolutely brilliant album, there are technical, brutal and even beautiful parts to this album, has everything you could possibly want

Rating: 8 Quite amazing to say the least .. very underrated.

Rating: 10 The vocals and the very brutal parts makes me go away sometimes, but indeed an unusual album. wondering why it's not on the top 20 list here in MS.

  Bands like these are very hard to come by.Sadly it seems that they aren't active anymore.

Heh, underrated? I dont know about any other album with more than 50 votes having 9.3 (!) rating. And for a reason of course, this is the jewel of death metal.

Within Death metal I would say it is underrated E.G This album is amazing (to me at least) but it doesn't REALLY get that much credit compared to a lot of other releases in the genre, I mean I only stumbled onto this album by chance when looking into some obscure death metal releases. Most who know this album Praise it highly but a lot of people don't know about it

very underrated.

That's too bad, i fully agree with you, very underrated album, but one of the best albums i ever heard.

Rating: 9 I remember when I was younger and early in my metal-dom I got this album and didn't like it much. The years have aged it like a fine cheese or wine and I can finally respect this excellent release.

Holy fuck...never heard anything like it.

Indeed, it's quite the stand-alone album. Amazing stuff.

Rating: 10 Obscene Productions has recently released a remaster with two bonus tracks. I wonder what it sounds like.
Baz Anderson - 20.01.2012 at 19:50  
  A newer version of "To Give"...

Quite a lot different... definitely prefer the version on this album.
AtrumHiberna - 20.02.2012 at 22:31  
  I was impressed a few years ago by the incredibly high ratings of this album, not just here, but everywhere, so I listened to it to see by myself why, and I honestly got really bored half way. I never liked them. maybe because the progressive element doesn't really gets my attention

Gaylord Fagballs - 21.01.2013 at 11:04  
  One of the best, most original albums of all time
Aristarchos - 28.02.2013 at 19:05  
Rating: 9 Never been a huge fan of this kind of technical death metal, but this album is really brilliant.
