The Norwegain band ACELSIA, may be considered as melodic hard rock. Sometimes quiet and mellow, sometimes heavy and noisy - the band is recognised by soothing melodies, melancholy moods and Malene's emotional voice.
Acelsia started as a solo project in the summer of 2006. Malene wanted to record some of her songs and got Nils and some other friends to help her out in the studio. Happy with the result, Malene decided to take the project further and form a permanent band.
Marius and Håkon showed up for auditions and was soon chosen to join the band. After some time with no permanent second guitarist, the band got its current line-up when Odd Henning joined the band in the fall of 2007.
Acelsia has contributed to different compilation albums such as “Månerock vol 2” and “Norwegian Wood Music For China”. In the fall of 2007 they recorded a music video for the song “Christine”.
In the last couple of months, Acelsia has taken a new musical direction, away from the guitar based pop/rock to more complex and melodic hard rock/goth metal. With this changed expression, the band has found their identity. In March, 2008, the band recorded a demo to show their recent development.
Acelsia tries to create honest and genuine music with hopes that the emotions it conveys will touch the listener. The music is contrastive and emotional, and moves between one extreme to the other, from the soft and sweet to the more brutal and heavy, but always with a strong melody in the center.
