Eliptic – Evolve or Die

Written by John Deaux

Eliptic are a female fronted band from Hawaii & come with a huge statement. “The band was formed from the molten lava’s of Hawaii. It is a conscious metal/rock band created in the center of a gateway between Earth and the unknown Universe“.  But do they have the cojones to back it up?

If you threw Otep, Alice in Chains & Pantera into a mixing pot, add a pinch of very pissed off attitude, you end up with Eliptic. A good example of this is the track Chariots of Fire.

No track is over the 4 minute mark which makes this a short & sweet album.

Malia is a strong vocalist with quite a range of techniques, from clean yet effected vocal, to full on death growl which sounds like it comes from the bowels of Satan after a Jalfrezi.

Joes guitar has the crunch of dry breakfast cereal, Coreys drums pummel like a prize-fighter & Arjunas bass rumbles like a volcanic eruption.

Eliptic have already been causing a bit of a stir (winning 3rd place in Sonoma Wire Works, Riff Rumble )

In answer to the question posed earlier, Eliptic do indeed have the cojones. 

They will be a band well worth looking out for in the future as they just might come to a city near you soon.

Head HERE & enjoy the album & it’s also available to purchase, which is recommended.
