Elvenking is active in the European metal-scene since 1997. After a lot of gigs the first CD was finally released in 2001. But this was just the beginning, by releasing albums the band could share its ideas with an ever growing audience. With ‘The Scythe’ they Italian fantasy metallers Elvenking started a new chapter in their history. The style is darker and heavier then before, you can still notice the mystic heart and the beautiful melodies which are the foundation of this mix of folk- and power-metal.
