What do a broken compass, an ad on Craigslist, and near death experiences have in common? They all molded the members of WNY's symphonic hard rock band Lost Elysium. With melodic driving beats infused with punk, metal and R&B flavors, Lost Elysium creates a world where the listener is invited to the safety of abnormality.
With a successful EP, "Catharsis" released in 2013 they were ready to hit the studio for a full length EP. Born of struggle, pain, animosity, and fear was Volume 1: Destiny's Bullet. Released in November, 2014 the album received reviews most notably from WNY's Artvoice
Co Founding the project in early 2013, Ashley Elle (vocal/keys) and Brian Muller (guitar), were motivated to create an atmosphere that resonates with painful memories and malicious intent. "it's truly a journey we are taking the listener on", Elle says. With the addition of Ricky Guard (drums) in late 2013 and Devin Kyle (bass) in 2014, the band was complete and ready to start again.
Since the addition, Lost Elysium had opened up for international bands such as Lacuna Coil, Saliva, Theory of a Deadman and Smile Empty Soul. Lost Elysium, not content to rest on their laurels, has recorded their new full length album titled Volume I: Destiny's Bullet. The much anticipated album was recorded at legendary Watchmen Studios and was released to rave reviews. Ashley Elle says, "this is just the beginning."
