Riddare av Koden
Mpumalanga, South Africa
Metal / Hard Rock
In 2005 the slow stagnation and downward spiral of decay in South African Metal began. Most came to the realisation that Metal was slowly dying out in our country...something had to be done and fast! 2006 marked the beginning of a new era for the music genre.
In the small town of Secunda in Mpumalanga, plans were being made, strategies formulated, and techniques honed to combat this dark spiral. The musical talents of Nathan Wilson, Daniel Wilson, Shay Kallie and Kevin Webber came together and Elegy was formed…
In January 2007, Elegy were ready to destroy, it brought with it a multitude of gigs, the power of the music left the crowd gasping for breath after every song, as well as slowly, but surely, building an ever-growing loyal fan base. March 2007 saw Elegy sign with Grim Music and a month later, the release of their debut self titled 3 track EP. The response to the 3 tracks was overwhelming earning many more shows, including many small festivals and premier events such as Motherfudd 2008 and 2009, Seasons Wither 1 and 2, Grimfest, The Summoning II, The Metal Rights Festival I and II, and Bellsfest.
The future looks bright in 2009 with the immanent release of out first full length studio album “A voice will call”, the album recorded and mastered at Gunston Records by renowned producer Jared Gunston will set the SA scene ablaze with 10 blistering tracks.
Be sure there is much more to come. Elegy… A force to be reckoned with…
