[Power Metal] Elendira / Grand Finale
#1
Has the dubious honor of being one of the more lightest and flowery Japanese power metal I sorta listen to. Fans of Skywings and later Azrael may like them.









Now we're not finished yet. This band had a total lineup facelift/style change and changed their name to Grand Finale. They haven't recorded anything yet, but they have been active on the live circuit. So this thread can cover them too. I'm not sure which members are in what band, but Elendira's official twitter changed over to Grand Finale, so...

CD Japan have Balflare's drummer Isao Matsuzaki joined on their third album?

And Yasumune Miyazaki seemed to go on to Azrael?

Did they change their vocalist?

These bands change members so much... Laugh I do recall their bassist joining Azrael though. I always assumed he was Elendira's bandleader. Curious to see who Grand Finale's lineup is, their twitter doesn't say and they don't have a homepage.

Yes, that seems likely as he seems to be the guy they always mention first.

Grande Finale's first album will be released on the Repentless label in January 2018.

Same label as Baskerville. Surprised they're not on Black-listed, oh well...

Moderately interested in this one.

Must say I like the Elendira album. they're not the heaviest bunch out there, but the musicianship seems fine. Their vocalist is... strangely chilled out, but not in a bad way. He's not annoying anyway. I'll take a look around for the other album and the EP. Maybe they thought he was a bit too chilled and that's why they replaced him? Be interesting to see what GF come up with in January.
