Elixir biography
French outfit ELIXIR was formed in the mid 1980's, and were amongst the first artists to be released by then newly formed enthusiast label MUSEA REcords when their debut LP Sabbat was released in 1986. A series of line-up alterations would follow before Elixir stabilized agaion. The single Regard appeared in 1988, issued for promotional purposes, and this was soon followed by the full length production Indifference in 1989. Elixir ceased to exist shortly after this however, for reasons unknown.

In 1999 Christian Marischal, the sole remaining original member at this point, decided to give this project a second go. It did take some time to find a stable and consistent line-up, but by 2005 the band had stabilized, and the EP Portraits would appear the following year.

Since then Elixir have been working on a new full length album, Voyageur. At first planned for a 2008 release, later announced to be forthcoming in 2010. The status for this production and the band itself is at the time of being unknown.

Elixir Neo-Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars French band performing in the 80's and belonging to the reincarnation of French theatrical prog along with bands like Naos,Anubis and Magnesis.They were formed by guitarist/singer Christian Marischal in Lorraine in 1984 and for their first album the band recorded as a sextet with a double-keyboard attack.''Sabbath'' was released on Musea Records in 1986.

The album is a typical example of Theatrical Neo/Symphonic Rock of the French school with no personal identity but always well-executed.Elixir draw strong influences by bands like ANGE or ATOLL certainly in a more synthsized way and with an ultra-clear production.The musicianship is based on the elaborate arrangements filled with mind-blowing flashy synthesizers and strong guitar work,both melodic and rhythmic.There are no really downs and ups,the whole effort flaws in the same vein,symphonic bombastic synths are mixed with moments of guitar explosions and theatrical over-the-top vocals by Marischal.Some melodies are quite outstanding and the performance of the band is always on a good level.

If you like the thetrical side of progressive rock or if you are simply a fan of Neo Prog,''Sabbath'' contains all the right elements to please you.Do not expect something special,however the album contains a mass of enoyable material to discover.Recommended.

Elixir Neo-Prog

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Elixir is a typical and obscure band from the French Progressive rock scene, born a decade after the Golden Age of prog, the '70's. Being now in the Eighties does not prevent from pursuing the legacy of Ange or Atoll, without forgetting to include in its music echoes from IQ, Steve Hackett or Genesis. Published on the Musea label in the year 1989 on vinyl only, there was no re issue on CD yet. The album named Indifférence was the second release of the band. The album has again energic rhythms, typical that french atmosphere overall. To me is a good album, maybe less intristing then the predecesor, little to monotonous in places, but keep the progressive elements, more towards neo in good form. The combinations between guitars and keyboards are ok, some parts are even great, like on La p'tite fille aux allumettes for ex. The band got little attention in prog circles, then like today, they are nothing realy a giant band that for some resons needed a very clouse look, but for sure they contribute to the '80's prog movement in the dark decade of prog rock genre. Pleasent album, but I prefer their first one Sabbat, is more eleaborated and quite better composed. 3 stars for Indifference.

4 stars Elixir is a typical and obscure band from the French Progressive rock scene, born a decade after the Golden Age. Being now in the Eighties does not prevent from pursuing the legacy of Ange or Atoll, without forgetting to include in its music echoes from IQ, Steve Hackett or Genesis. Published on the Musea label in the year 1986 on vinyl and re-release on CD in 2009 by same Musea records, the first opus "Sabbat" is based on beautiful vocal parts, superb melodies built upon energetic rhythms, not to mention magnificent combinations between guitars and keyboards. Pieces like Images or Folie douce will grab the listner instantly with cohesion, melodic rigour and continuous emotion . Recommended one of the lost gems of progressive rock from '80's, and one of the albums that keeps the flag high aswell in this genre. 4 stars, quite unnoticed band and with great potential, they will release another album, the second one in 1989 named Indiff'rence, and soon after disbanded.
Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
