The founding members of the band all had one thing in common, an acute passion for metal. Coming from different parts of the world with diverse backgrounds and stories, they met through the interwebs in the summer of 2012. They were looking to form a Symphonic Metal band, a unique sub-genre of metal which combines crushing guitar riffs and heavy low end rhythm with contrasting female vocals and orchestral elements, a genre that they believed to be vastly underrepresented in the local metal scene.
After playing a few shows in 2012, the four original members (Yash Trivedi, guitars; Tom Torma, bass; Katia Villa, vocals; and Usman Shah, drums) decided to take a more serious approach to their music and started writing their own material. After recruiting Mathew Sam to fulfill keyboard duties in the spring of 2013, the lineup was ready and enthusiastic to start songwriting. Elysium Echoes started to work on their first EP, a concept album about historical figures set in fantasy based environments. They incorporated influences from various sub-genres such as Symphonic, Power and Melodic Death Metal.
In the summer of 2013, Elysium Echoes performed live for the first time with original songs at Funky Winkerbeans, a popular Vancouver venue for the metal crowd, sharing the stage with bands like 88 Mile Trip, Mournir, Doomsday Machine, Atrous Leviathan, and Tribune.
Elysium Echoes is currently playing shenanigans for the very sophisticated crowd of Vancouver and writing original material to record a full length album.
