Elvaron biography
ELVARON is progressive metal band from Nancy, Lorraine, France consisting of Matthieu Morand (guitar, vocals), Nicolas Colnot (bass), Thomas Das Neves (drums), and Kevin Kazek (vocals).

After several demos, ELVARON recorded their debut album "Battle Mages" on Thundering Records in 1997. They released their second full length album "The Five Shires" in 2001, "The Buried Crown" in 2005, and "Gravitation Control System" in 2007.

They are currently writing material for their fifth studio album.


While their first two efforts "Battle Mages" and "The Five Shires" are predominately technical thrash albums, "The Buried Crown" and "Gravitation Control System" began exploring the progressive influences of bands such as RUSH, SYMPHONY X and DREAM THEATER while maintaining an aggressive technical thrash style of OVERKILL or TESTAMENT. They were approved by the Prog Metal Team and are highly recommended.

3 stars French band ELVARON was formed back in 1993, and have a history of releasing a new album every 4 to 5 years ever since their formation, more often than not with some line-up alterations in between album releases. Following a nine year long spell of inactivity they returned with their fifth album "Ghost of a Blood Tie" in 2016, a production that was released through French label Fantai'zic Productions.

Elvaron is a band that should be in the field of vision for just about anyone that have a strong fondness for classic era progressive metal. The compositions are well mapped out, and the guitar and keyboard combinations in particular are of a well above average quality. The vocals will make or break interest in this band however, and if nothing else it will limit their overall appeal. But for those not all that invested in this aspect of a band's overall sound, who also enjoy this type of progressive metal, Elvaron is another band that merits a check at some point.
