enkElination (enkeli – meaning Angel in Finnish) was formed in November 2011 by classically trained former opera singer Elina Siirala. She moved to London in 2008 and fell in love with the power and performance of rock and metal.
In 2012 she started working with a guitar player Shadow Venger, who’s previous band Empyreal Destroyer was voted as the best unsigned band of 2007, supported Amon Amarth and played Bloodstock. He brought the sound of the band to another level and since then they’ve been joined by Alasdair on bass.
After playing numerous live shows in and around London, enkElination released their first EP in September of 2012. The past few months they’ve been recording their debut album which is coming out in summer 2014. Their official music video “Tears of Lust” was released in March 2014 and they supported Van Canto at The Underworld London in April.
