ELEGY picture
ELEGY are a progressive power metal band from Eindhoven in the Netherlands. Founded in 1986, their music is characterised by the fusion of power and progressive metal, which made them the pioneers of the 'progressive power metal' subgenre. The band was plagued by a continuing changing roster, which counts in the current line-up only one founding member. Elegy have currently suspended any recording or live activity.

The band was formed in 1986 by guitarists Hank van de Laars and Arno van Brussel, who recruited the first stable line-up of Elegy with vocalist Chris Terheijden, bassist Martin Helmantel and Bert Burgers on drums. In 1986, the new band won a competition organised by the German magazine Metal Hammer and Polydor Records and recorded their first demo Metricide. After recording their second demo, Better Than Bells, the band had already become known enough to tour with Angel Witch, Paul DiAnno’s Battlezone, Hellion and

The riffs just really aren’t that exciting, the production sounds "tinny", and the vocals are really annoying. I don't mind high-pitched singing, but this guys inaudible voice is just irritating.

On a positive note, there are a few reasonably catchy chorus’s, and although they help me find a bit of stability in a song that I'm probably not paying much attention to, it’s really not worth listening through a few minutes of generic riffs and uninspired songwriting for the sake of a chorus.

The sad thing is, I actually quite like Elegy. But this album is just so boring and bland. There's countless progressive power metal bands out there, and there's other boring and bland albums that are better than this one. An underrated band, but you wouldn't guess it from hearing 'Lost'.
