Hi people:

I have noticed since long time ago, but i remembered it today`s afternoon, that the Mexican band Elfonia is categorized under Prog Folk, i own their 2 albums and i can say that only a few of their music has some folkish roots and influences, the point is, that i`d like to know your opinion (of course if you know the band) about it, im pretty sure that they dont belong to Prog Folk at all, they are closer to metal, but also im sure that they dont have the necessary arguments to be categorized as prog metal, people compare them usually with The Gathering because of the voice, but actually the sound is quite different i think...also i have though that maybe a better place to them could be prog related, or maybe Art Rock? (send them to micky LOL)

Thanks for your comments, also i `d like to make a poll in the prog polls section about which subgenre do people think Elfonia should be, but only if in this thread nothing is solved in the near future.

Again thanks Wink

I haven't heard them, but we can ask Marcela tonight and I'll represent her vote!! Tongue

Hahaha, that`s a good idea, in an interview to a magazine Marcela clasified Elfonia as a progressive rock band, but no subgenre was mentioned at all...
 
See you later in the concert!Wink

I only know Elfonia because of Marcela Bovio's involvement in the Human Equation by Ayreon. She has a beautiful voice, especially on Day 13: Sign, I ordered Stream Of Passion's album off the internet today so hopefully enjoy more of her soon.

They don't have the metall vibe iny opinion
and from reading their interiews thay are inlfuenced a lot by post rock
so art rock for me they have a more experimental atmospheric vibe.
Post rock might be too far I think.
