Bio: Simply put Elisium is passion and raw emotion in music form

ELISIUM is a 3-piece band from central (Fredericksburg) Virginia. Their sound is a unique blend of dark rock, and modern metal. Most often compared to Tool and Chevelle. Elisium sounds huge for only being 3 guys. Vocalist/Guitarist Nate Compton and brother Kirb Compton on bass hold down the harmonies with ease, while Nathan Thomas (called “Junior”) on drums keep them in line. Having shared the stage with mega acts like Chevelle, 10 Years, Days of the New, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Jackyl, Straight Line Stitch, Another Lost Year, Wayland, Screaming for Silence and Nonpoint. Elisium is no stranger to operating at the professional. They have toured independently through 32 states, and have markets that grow every day.

Their first album, “Things They Carried,” was released on Baltimore based Hard Volume Records in 2004, and their latest EP “Becoming,” came out last May (2012) with much anticipation and buzz surrounding it and great reviews from industry people. They are currently being booked by The Lafayette Agency (also books Another Lost Year, Saint Diablo, and Wayland). Elisium is dedicated to the idea that music is more than just entertainment, and that our lives, and the very fabric of the universe are united by rhythm and vibrations and harmony. With song and lyrics and themes ranging from determination, reincarnation, and man’s many attempts at describing the universe, they are not afraid to tackle serious themes in powerful ways. 2014 is shaping up to be Elisium’s best year yet, with their drive, determination, and passion for bringing you an amazing live show you’ll demand for them to come back!
