Eleine: Dancing in Hell

Mellifluous corridors leading to pompously-structured symphonic hallways attractively radiate to maximise the potential in store throughout the extravagant third offering from Landskrona’s exhilarating magisterial Metallers; fabricating an astutely-revolutionized memoriam with a wealthily tantalizing shot of triumph and a well-produced configuration planted in the deep pits of hell’s incinerating inferno. Consequently, my first ever dose of the elegant spectacle fronted by the multi-talented vocalist Madeliene Liljestam and the bewildering ensemble was just before proceeding a visit to the Northern Scandanavian motherland of Sweden for the formidable annual festival of Sabaton Open Air, where the supremely-dignified outfit breathtakingly devastated the incandescent realms of the notoriously-elevated stage; intelligently distributing their own seductive measure of Symphonic Metal with an awe-inspiring whisper of integrity and commanding proficiency.

Vibrantly, Dancing in Hell sumptuously-escorts listeners into the sublime heritage that Eleine has respectfully broadened across the duration of their formidable career; efficiently initiating colossal wavelengths with the remarkably-accomplished episodes of the single-released tracks of the unforgettable ‘Ava of Death’ and the muscular-riffing heavyweight opener of ‘Enemies’. Moreover, this release materializes to be a different record for the Swedes and it rapaciously enters a new domain pushing nearly every output from this aspiring portfolio to be vigorous contenders that subsequently could be released as singles; dynamically driving perfectly compelling numbers like ‘Crawl from the Ashes’ and ‘Where Your Rotten Corpse Lie’ to be sophisticatedly promoted from customary album tracks to noteworthy championing instalments of the Eleine back catalogue.

The first glance of the luscious-bewitching spell arrangements we received from the immortal hell dancing phenomenon came productively formed in the shape of a persuasive taster E.P containing the superlatively formatted cruncher ‘All Shall Burn’, quintessentially cruising through the ambience of the fire-towering gates of the shadowy chambers of the blackened abyss; attentively plastered with some monumental riff-charging interchanges and chugging interludes from the masterly-lustrous guitarist Rikard Ekberg.

Admittingly, adding the faultless capacity of the rhythmic expertise of bass player Anton Helgesson and the dynamically-gifted thunder house drummer Jesper Sunnhagen has fundamentally evolved this pinnacle-heightening establishment as seen evident through the grasps of the body-bruising components of the self-titled ‘Dancing in Hell’ and the intensely-diversified chasms of ‘Memoriam’, enthrallingly drenched in the glittering vocalized passages and the harvesting resplendent form of Madeliene throughout this harmoniously-flawless anthology; superbly orchestrated deep in the fine roots of the Symphonically-bonded outlets to become a prodigy of the purest Heavy Metal discipline.

All inclusively, Dancing in Hell is confidently going to be an exceedingly strenuous benefaction to ultimately burn down and it is likely to be a sincerely difficult piece of framework to compete with on every single level put forth to the masses. Shrewdly, Eleine have constructively combined an elemental sense of growth and expanding futuristic productivity in the distribution of their prepossessing third segment inside their adjuring saga of principality and the ingeniously-extravagant expedition of the elite’s inventively-enduring foundations to be the premier Symphonic Metal production of the year.

My Score:

Please - no more James Mannion reviews. Not until he stops trying to impress us with his impenetrable hogwash, and learns to speak in clear, understandable English.
