ENCELADUS, the San Antonio, Texas based up and coming speed / power metal band humbly begin to make noise in 2012 right in the middle of the heavy metal capital of the lone star state.
The band organically flared up a virtual online metal storm worldwide upon the release of their 2013 Japan only EP titled "Time in A Dream" which received critical praise from metal music fans, media critics and fellow musicians.
On the strength of the 3 song EP, Enceladus brought forth and established a type of metal combining elements of speed and power metal in conjunction with
a dual harmony guitar assault, profound bass lines and energized drums; all synergistically combined with passionately sung, cosmically inspired lyrical elements to create an exhilarating and refreshing form of metal which their fans have categorized as "EnlightenMetal".
Not letting their EP become their sole calling card and becoming overshadowed by complacency, the core band members of Geo (Guitar), Soikkam (Vox) and Judas (Bass) embarked on a cosmic journey to write the ultimate shred inspired European speed / power metal influenced album which resulted in the creation of their 2014 debut full length cd "Journey to Enlightenment".
The debut cd includes all 3 songs from the Time In A Dream EP, as well as 10 brand new barnstormers.
