ELEINE was founded by lead vocalist Madeleine Liljestam & guitarist/growler Rikard Ekberg.
The first show was held in 2014 and the following year ELEINE released their self-titled debut album.
ELEINE’s music is heavy dark symphonic metal with a unique and elegant spin.
While performing on stage, they never fail to deliver a show that captivates the audience by seducing and striking them with a massive sense of wonder. When people hear ELEINE, they also identify the name with an alternative model. Beyond being the lead singer of the band, Madeleine has been on the cover of Scandinavian Tattoo Magazine and models for several large alternative companies. With a combination of modeling and music, Eleine define themselves as seductive, stylish, and monumental.
In early 2016, ELEINE took a new turn when the band and their label went separate ways.
In June of the same year they released their hit single "Break Take Live" along with a music video that
was well received by critics and fans.
They also went on a successful European tour with MOONSPELL.
In 2017 Madeleine and Rikard started their own record label, Algoth Records, and began
working with the well known label Black Lodge Records and Sound Pollution Distribution.
During the same year they played several renowned shows such as Gefle Metal Festival and in October 2017
Eleine released a new single, "Hell Moon (We Shall Never Die)" before they went on tour in Sweden with the legendary W.A.S.P. After the tour, the band was invited to Japan where they headlined the Loud & metal Mania festival in Tokyo. A first time visit to Japan for the band.
A new chapter began when ELEINE released their second full-length album
"Until The End" in February 2018. During its first week the album placed #1 in the Swedish album sales charts.
The album also saw an Asian release through the label Marquee Inc./Avalon including an exclusive bonus track.
During 2018 ELEINE toured with ARCH ENEMY in Sweden and did headline tours in both Sweden and UK.
During fall/winter of 2018 Jesper Sunnhagen and Anton Helgesson joined ELEINE as new permanent drummer and bass player.
2019 was a succesful year for ELEINE. A touring festival year while they worked on a new release. The first single of their upcoming EP "All Shall Burn" was titled "Enemies" and instantly became a hit for ELEINE reaching over 1 million youtube views in just 3 months.
The second single was a cover of the well-known "Mein Herz Brennt" by Rammstein, and the third and last single of the EP has become one of ELEINE's most popular songs of all time, the title track: "All Shall Burn". The first week of the release of the EP, it hit several sales charts in Sweden.
After this very successful EP release, ELEINE headed out on a 5 week European Tour alongside with MYRATH in February/March 2020. But due to the COVID-19 virus spreading around the world, making it impossible to have gatherings of people, the last two weeks of the tour had to be cancelled.
At the time of writing, ELEINE is currently recording their third full length album set to be released in the near future.
