Elexorien is a Power metal/Viking metal band from Groningen, Netherlands.

Musical characteristics

Elexorien plays a mixture of power and viking metal with growls and classically trained female vocals, also taking influences from folk, black and death metal. The term "Epic Battle metal" is how the band defines their own sound.

Band history

Founded in 2004 by Lainedil (guitarist, growls), Grimbert (keyboard), Liza (bass) and Joris (drums), they first went under the name Tearful Dawn. They then changed their name to Elexorien, which is taken from one of Kit Rae's fantasy blades from the Swords of the Ancients.

In 2005 they were joined by vocalist Iné and guitarist Wolve. With these additions they finished up their line-up and went to play in quite a few concerts in Netherlands, supporting bands like Ensiferum, Suffocation and Korpiklaani. Later in May 2005, they recorded and released their promo "Rising of the Storm", which was then followed by their full-length self-titled debut album, released on April 13, 2007.
