When the singer was recruited they started play melodic death. Later on, they decided to have a keybordplayer. Mark:Black will release the new album "A Shape of Diversity" in the early 2008. They have released 4 demos with the name Elohim. Yet Unnamed 2002 Modest Memoirs 2003 Modest Epilogue 2003 Mark Black 2006 Myspacelink: http://www.myspace.com/markblackband Old homepage: http://www.elohimband.com/ 3) ELOHIM is a four-piece French unit founded by keyboardist Jacky Sourisseau in the early 70's. Their style is a mixture of neo-prog and fusion, combining the sounds of MARILLION and IQ with those of ANGE, ATOLL and to a lesser extent, JETHRO TULL. Apart from Sourisseau, they featured Daniel Trutet on guitar and bass as well as brother Jean-Paul on vocals (who would later move on to HECENIA and UDRAYA) and Jean-Marc Proux on drums.
The band released one album and appeared on the compilation disk "Enchantement" in 1987 before breaking up. The cd version of their album "Mana Perdu" contains seven original songs plus four bonus tracks, the sum total of their repertoire. "Mana Perdu" (83) is a loosely-knit concept album about a diabolical character, ELO 666, who aims at creating a new religion in order to avenge himself from the human race and eventually dominate it. The music is very much in the symphonic theatrical prog tradition of ANGE, MONA LISA and ATOLL, with convincing and appropriately dramatic (French) lyrics in the style of Peter Gabriel and Christian Decamps. The atmosphere, however, is clearly 80's neo-prog, MARILLION and IQ style, where the synths take the lead over mini-moogs and mellotrons and catchy melodies abound.
Solid musicianship and strong songwriting, featuring intense passages interspersed with delicate moments full of beauty. Not a classic but should appeal to collectors of 80's French prog.
