Elegia is a female fronted symphonic goth metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden. Elegia is latin for ”Elegy” which means ”a sad or reflective song or poem”. This goes a long way when describing our sound and lyrics.

Our lyrics are often based on own experiences and melancholy feelings. Our music is mostly minor key, but catchy and melodic enough to be appreciated by a wide range of listeners. If we had to pick only four influences it would likely be Within Temptation, Evanescence, Nightwish and Type O Negative. So if you like any of those bands songs, you will likely enjoy ours.

We just released our debut album Anamnesis on all major online stores. Now that our album is finally out we are looking forward to do some more live shows in Sweden, perhaps even a national tour.

Although we are of course a fairly new band, the road to completing our debut album has actually been a rather long and difficult one. Losing band members is one of the most difficult and time consuming experiences a band goes through, and it set us back many times. We considered quitting on several occasions, but we told ourselfs that all bands goes through this and only the ones strong enough to handle the setbacks get to reap the rewards. We hope that the hardships were worth it, but we’ll let you be the judge of that. Check out our music and let us know! You can listen to excerpts of our songs for free in our store.

We hope you enjoy our music!
