I just recently found out about them through the Metalscape podcast and they are amazing. If you haven't heard about them thay're a folk metal band. They have great sound and they're a good band to listen to. Is there any other Eluvietie fans out there?
#2
Well I know they're playing @ bloodstock next year (which I'm planning on going to), what I've heard of them is excellent. I need to get me some of their stuff.
A metal band?

He is very charismatic live too. Has a unique stage presence.

I love this band. Check out the song Your Gaulish War, it's pretty fucking amazing.

That's the first song that pops up on their site. www.eluveitie.ch or the people that don't know about it. Check out their video on there site btw. It's awesome. It's Of Fire, Wind, and Wisdom. Purrty badass.

Apparently they're making two albums, a purely folk one and a folk metal one. At least that's what I remember reading on their Myspace. Sounds interesting.

They're sweet. They've got some sweet flute/ Hurdy gurdy melodies.

Yes, do it. Get "Spirit".


Anyway, amazing band, one of my favourites.

You spelt their name wrong though - it's Eluveitie.

They're streaming Slania on their myspace right now, just thought I'd let you guys know.

http://www.myspace.com/eluveitie

Thanks, I'll go have a listen.

EDIT: I just listened to it from start to finish: It's amazing! I'm really impressed that it lived up to the last album, I might even prefer it, I'm not sure yet. But I'm definitely buing it as soon as I get the chance.

Yes. Paying for it.

Yeah, the new album is pretty kickass. I love how they go from slow songs with flutes and stuff straight into full melodeath tracks that slay. Awesome band.

So I picked up Slania recently, it sounds (to me) like a mix of Insomnium, Amon Amarth and Ensiferum, plus their own distinct folk sound. Which of course = kick ass.

A great album to be sure, the chorus to Inis Mona is incredibly catchy.

#30
When I think of a mix of Amon Amarth and Ensiferum (don't know much about Insomnium) I think of good drums and awesome growls, as far as very catchy, yet simple riffs. Sounds awesome, I might purchase it.

I'd like to see these guys live as well

Slania is a good album, not as good as Spirit imo though

Yeah, Spirit is better - it's one of all time favorite albums.

These guys are pure win. I've been listening to a lot of folk metal lately. I only have Spirit... how does that rank in their discography and what should I get next?
#36
Spirit is incredible, and Slania is awesome as well. They only have two albums, so obviously get Slania next. It's not quite as good as Spirit but still kick-ass all the same.

No problemo.

And I reiterate, Inis Mona is the catchiest metal song ever.

Spirit > Slania

Spirit is also more traditional folky, with black metal and hints of melodeath thrown in.

Slania is much more melodeath at times.
