The band says, «WE ARE ELLIMIST. We bring you the tales and lore of a being far beyond the reach of space and time; we share with you songs of discovery, exploration, life, loss, eternity, and nothingness; We invite you to join us on this journey, wherever it at lead».
Ellimist’s self-titled debut album was released today! Loosely based around the tale of the Ellimist, this album births a sonic universe detailing Toomin’s journey as he transcends his corporeal form to become an omnipotent being beyond the reaches of the very fabric of reality. A unique blend of modern progressive metal which incorporates crushing guitar work, dynamic vocals that flow from brutal to ethereal seamlessly; voiceover passages, and sound effects which hone and craft the storyline while simultaneously capturing the listener’s attention to transport them to another world; this album dives deep into themes of great and devastating loss, re-discovery, exploration, eternity, and nothingness, all while telling a familiar story in a completely novel way. This first offering from Ellimist is surely not one to miss!
