ELIS Confirmed For Belgium's METAL FEMALE VOICES FEST V

Liechtenstein-based gothic metal group ELIS — whose lead singer, Sabine Dünser, who suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on July 7, 2006 during rehearsal and passed away the following day in hospital — will make its live debut with Dünser's replacement, Sandra Schleret (DREAMS OF SANITY, SIEGFRIED), at the Metal Female Voices Fest V, set to take place Saturday, October 20, 2007 at Oktoberhallen in Wieze, Belgium. The festival billing is shaping up as follows (in alphabetical order):

AFTER FOREVER
BATTLELORE
DISTORTED
ELIS
EPICA
HOLY MOSES
IMPERIA
INTERRIA
SERAPHIM
SIRENIA
THEATRE OF TRAGEDY
VALKYRE

ELIS's latest album, "Griefshire", was released in Europe on November 24 via Napalm Records (the U.S. will receive the album on January 16). The recordings for the CD were completed prior to the death of Dünser, who came up with the original concept for the album.

Dünser was born June 27, 1977 and joined ELIS, then still known as ERBEN DER SCHOPFUNG, in 2001.

The follow-up to 2004's "Dark Clouds in a Perfect Sky", "Griefshire" was completed at Mastersound Studios in Stuttgart with producer Alexander Krull (ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES).
