There are 2 artists that use the name Elite. The more popular one is from Norway. Elite was founded in 2001 by Tor Arne Fallingen and Torgeir Nordahl in Mo I Rana, Norway. Their style is in the black end of metal, with influences from old-school blackmetal bands which has given them their rough sound. In late 2002 additional members were recruited and instead of releasing demos Elite’s first release was a split 7” EP with Carbon from Australia.
