Elysium – “In Valour”

Elysium – “In Valour” EP (www.facebook.com/elysiumband)

The Elysian Fields, or the Elysian Plains, were the final resting places of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous. UK post emocore outfit Elysium certainly subscribe to this ethos, being named after seeing the movie “Gladiator” and also in their fiery, passionate music. Epic riffs mixed with equally powerful guitar melodies are the key driver behind songs like ‘Scars’ and ‘Boy’ that show influences from Bring Me The Horizon to Funeral For A Friend. With vocalist Matt Bailey putting in an equally rousing performance like Russell Crowe before his cavalry charge, Elysium certainly have plenty in their hearts to tug at the strings of yours while indulging in some manly chest beating.
