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. Years of trying to fit her voice into the pop mould, she finally started writing music she loved and worked with her vocals. Since then she's been joined by some great musicians and been swept away by the metal scene.
enkElination released their first EP in September of 2012 and have started working on writing their debut album. Regularly gigging in and around London's metal venues, they are generating a huge buzz, and everyone who has seen them perform live is unlikely to forget them anytime soon.
'This is a band that is going to have to be watched in 2013!' – Dave Smith, RavenheartMusic
'Dark, yet angelic - Melodic, yet Metal.'
