The story of the symphonic metal gang, Eleine, from Malmö, lead by Madeleine Liljestam, began in 2012 when Madeleine, the songwriter and singer of the band, and the other songwriter and vocalist-guitarist Rikard Ekberg formed together the band.
At the end of 2013, joined them three talented musicians:
David Eriksson (drums),
Sebastian Berglund (keys) and
Andreas Mårtensson (bass guitar)
Their first single released on April 3 2014, titled Gathering Storm, that followed in March 2015 by the second, which received a positive feedback from both the audience and the critics.
