Russian Metalcore Band Eleanore Begin Tells A Story With Latest Album From Hell With Love

Russian metalcore band Eleanore Begin released its latest album, From Hell With Love, March 24th, 2022. and every song on this album is part of a very intriguing story of betrayal, love, and loss.

Eleanore Begin is an aspiring band from the Russian city of Voronezh, in the southern part of the country, around 600 kilometers south of Moscow. The band is 10 years old this year. The only original member is band leader and vocalist Pavel Ermolenko, who also does keyboard programming and writes lyrics and most of the music. Other band members include: Alexey Shatokhin (bass guitar, also some public relations and management duties); Sergey Shmykov (drums); Alexey Popov (guitar); and Dmitriy Uvarov (guitar).

The band has played a lot of live shows across their country and has also released a number of singles. This album is their second, and they took a more serious approach on this one and turned to a heavier sound. The album was self-recorded and produced. Mixing and mastering was done remotely with a sound engineer, but the rest was done by the band. Musically, this album has just about everything you can imagine -- intense guitar riffs, rhythmic bass line, and pounding drums, along with keyboards and some electronic elements. Ermolenko's dark, powerful hard vocals and melodic singing complement each other perfectly.
