ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MUSIC
Released after recordings spread over two years, The Elephant Truth is a concept album by Brazilian heavy metal band Greensleeves. The songs tell, nonlinearly and abstractly, the mental journey of a man in a coma. The storyline was inspired by the late John Godfrey Saxe’s poem “The Blind Men and The Elephant”, and mixes ideas from that poem to the life of the main character, in metaphors about the diversity of truth. Experimenting from traditional heavy metal to progressive and thrash metal, the album has Khallice’s lead singer Alirio Netto as special guest in some tracks.

BAND
Greensleeves was founded in 1993, when guitarists Victor Schmidlin (then also lead singer) and Cicero Baggio, bassist Joao Koerner and drummer Giulliano Settim recorded the band’s first demo tape and started touring in Curitiba, Brazil.

In 1994, Jim Marc Douglas (ex-Icarus) joined as lead singer. In 1995, the band released the demo Immortal, recorded at Drum Studio, in Rio de Janeiro, engineered by Nico Rezende and mixed by Marcelo Sussekind. Following the release, the band performed in Curitiba and other cities in the state of Parana, Brazil.

In 1997, Gui Nogueira replaces Douglas as lead singer, and Luis Requiao (ex-Shades Before Dawn) replaces Giulliano as drummer. With the new lineup, the band moved from classic heavy metal to prog metal. However, shortly after that Luis Requiao left the band, to be replaced by Rhandu Lopez. Months later, nevertheless, Greensleeves was disbanded.

The band resumed activities only 9 years later, to start recording The Elephant Truth, with lead singer Gui Nogueira, guitarists Victor Schmidlin and Cicero Baggio, bassist Joao Koerner and drummer Marlon Marquis (ex-Dynahead).
