Recording the demo right away, which was immediately elected as “Demo of The Month” in Metal Hammer Magazine, ELYSION received excellent critics in webzines and magazines, complimenting utmost on the exceptionally professional sound witch gladly matched European and American high standards. Giving their first interview to Metalmare Magazine (GR), ELYSION right from their very first months of active presence were hosted in numerous columns and were interviewed for radio stations and TV music shows, all this causing the music soon to spread and help them receive several awards (one of them being Fillipos Nakas pop and rock awards 2006 for best band). In the following time ELYSION, among many concerts, were invited to headline in important rock and metal events and also had the pleasure to support a great number of top artists of the scene, most importantly The Gathering, Christian Death, Diary of Dreams, Star Industry.

Then they entered the studio for the recordings of debut album, which, achieving to be an excellent sample of ELYSION’s potential, soon attracted the attention of numerous record labels, leading in signing up with Massacre Records. In the next months ELYSION completed mixing and mastering of the album, having the great privilege to work with America’s top engineer Ted Jensen (Madonna, Evanescence, Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Nickelback, Korn, Marilyn Manson) and have their music mastered in his very owned Sterling Sound Studios, thereby gaining and important advantage of very high -standards production. The cover of the album is created by Natalie Shau (Lacuna Coil, Poison Black, The Duskfall). The artwork and the photographs of the booklet is a creation of Seth Siro Anton (Moonspell, Paradise Lost, Exodus, Soilwork, Septic Flesh).
