Eleine unleashed official video for their darkest song ‘War Das Alles’
Swedish dark symphonic metal powerhouse ELEINE are currently setting the stages on fire as support band of the current MOONSPELL North American tour and last week, the unceasing band have unveiled one of the most special songs taken from their upcoming album »We Shall Remain« which will be released on July 14, 2023 via Atomic Fire Records. ‘War Das Alles’ (German for ‘Was this all?’) was written in one of the darkest hours. This German poem by front-woman Madeleine Liljestam translates into one of the most touching and intimate moments on the album.
“It all started with a poem in English, that made more sense in German and ‘War Das Alles’ came to life. In the midst of darkness, you might question yourself – was this all? Am I no more? It’s a natural question when going through something that’s too heavy for your shoulders.
Before things get better – it will be heavier for a while. Whether it’s depression, a difficult task at work or a relationship… it usually gets heavier right before you reach the goal.
With this single, we want to highlight that these thoughts and feelings sometimes enter your life, and that it doesn’t mean it’s the end. It’s a part of something better to come. Balance within life.
Feel that you are accepted as you are with this song, that you are not alone. Embrace the very special feeling and atmosphere this chorus brings – and tomorrow might feel a bit brighter with the entire ELEINE legions supporting you,” they comment.
