Eluveitie

Authentic Celtic folk blended with modern death metal, heavenly influenced by the “Gothenburg sound”. This is the kind of music which the band describes as ‘new wave of folk metal’, and this brought the Swiss band success. The fastest growing band in the pagan-metalscene. Chrigel started a studio-project in 2002, it was then the first EP ‘Ven’ came to live. Due to their big international success it was sold out prette quick. The band got to sing with the label ‘Fear Dark’ and the EP was remastered and partially rerecorded. After this Eluveitie became a band which performs with a lot of the big names in the folk-metalscene.
In 2009 the band releases an acoustic CD, with a lot of new songs. The band proves, acoustic can be pretty heavy. Eluveitie may be called THE folk-metalband. They’re not the band which invented folk-metal, but the band which proved with their metal-hard folk, this is a genre which should be taken seriously.
In 2014 the band is back on track with it’s beautiful Celtic influences and they improved their show, thus becoming the leading folk-metalband.
