ELI is a Gothic Metal act fronted by Italian singer Eliza
Pezzuto. The debut album "Darkness Will Fall"
is to be released by Lion Music on December 5th 2008.
“Darkness Will Fall” sees gothic metal fused
with symphonic and progressive elements blended to make
an accessible album created to showcase the vocal abilities
The album has some traits that can be compared to Evanescence
or Within Temptation yet the album has its own flavour
and unique personality with its strong classical and symphonic
edge. The music shows an expansion of the musical styling’s
Lars Eric Mattsson has turned to in recent years, yet
“Darkness Will Fall” should be considered
more of a framework for the vocals of Eli. Lyrically the
album touches on personal relationships, how mankind is
treating planet and more.
The album was written between January 2008 and July 2008
and the recordings took place in Finland (music) and Italy
(vocals). All the music was composed and produced by Lars
Eric Mattsson. The actual recordings for “Darkness
Will Fall” took place between March and September
2008 and was mixed in October at the new Lion’s
Cage studio, Finland.
