ROCK: Progressive Rock, METAL: Gothic Metal
Elfonía is an experimental rock band from Monterrey, México. Its sound is a combination of a wide variety of influences, such as doom, gothic, atmospheric and progressive. Considered to be one of the most innovate bands on its genre, Elfonía seeks to reflect elegance and delicacy thru its performances and compositions. Beautiful vocal melodies always play a fundamental roll.
The band's beginnings go back to 2001, when Alejandro Millán (keyboards) and Marcela Bovio (vocals, violin), after leaving their previous band Hydra, started working together in a new musical project. With time, this new project took a more defined and specific form; by distributing some demo tracks on the Internet, Elfonía started to gain attention.
In November 2002, the band had the opportunity to perform as a supporting act for Haggard and Ataraxia, in a concert promoted by a major cultural festival in Monterrey. Alejandro and Marcela contacted Roberto Quintanilla (guitar), Pablo González (guest bassist) and Javier Garagarza (guest drummer) to complete the band's lineup.
By the end of the year, the band recorded their first full-length album (a completely independent production). Released in late February 2003, the album has received excellent reviews and comments from music connoisseurs and fans all over the world. Currently the album can be found in stores in Latin America, Europe and Japan.
Throughout 2003, the band performed in various stages in their home country, one of those presentations being the debut of their first music video, "Aura". In November, Dutch musician Arjen Lucassen invited Marcela Bovio to perform as a guest singer in Ayreon's album "The Human Equation. Also, the band performed as a supporting act for the Dutch band The Gathering in their Mexican tour.
Currently Elfonía is working on material for a second album, with which the band hopes to surpass the high expectation of its followers.

"Elfonía's debut album is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful and interesting contributions a Mexican band has made to ethereal/experimental music." Adrián Medina, Ars Nocturnus Music
"...an album for female vocal enthusiasts regardless of their grounding. That the music is progressive with an occasional Latin and Celtic edge makes it even more exciting." Russel Elliot, https://www.tradebit.com
"...the perfect winding down music", Dries Dokter, https://www.tradebit.com
"A beautiful and original piece of art that no words can describe.", Undercraft, https://www.tradebit.com
