Eluveitie are a Swiss Folk Metal band. Eluveitie blends elements of Melodic Death Metal with celtic folk music, all with a pagan theme. As far as folk metal bands go, they are a fairly well known and well established act, having released 4 full length studio albums since 2006. One of them, Slania (2008) charted in Switzerland and Germany.
Eluveitie has examples of:
- Celtic Mythology
- Everything's Louder with Bagpipes
- Gratuitous Foreign Language - The page quote is an example.
- Heavy Mithril
- Indecipherable Lyrics - Unless of course you speak the dead language Gaulish, which Eluveitie uses for some lyrics.
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly - as is the case with most folk metal bands.
- New Sound Album - Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion was the band's first acoustic album, ditching the metal for almost pure folk music.
