Elfonia (2001-present): a Gothic band from Monterrey, Mexico.
lfonia would be an experimental rock band from Monterrey, Mexico, its sound a combination of a wide variety of influences, such as Doom, gothic, Atmospheric and Progressive with beautiful vocal melodies always playing a fundamental role.
The band's beginnings date 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. 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 (bass) and Javier Garagarza (drums) as guest performers to complete the band's line-up and by the end of the year, the band had recorded their first full-length album as an independent production. Released in late February 2003, the self-titled album received excellent reviews and comments from music connoisseurs and fans all over the world.
