Eluveite, which, according to their last.fm page is pronounced “ El-vay-tee”, is a melodic folk metal band that formed in 2002. Eluveitie is currently signed to Nuclear Blast records, through which they will release their fourth full-length.

Chrigel G.: vocals, mandola, whistles, bodhran, acoustic guitar, pipes

Merlin S.: drums
Siméon K.: lead guitar
Ivo Henzi: rhythm guitar
Anna M.: Hurdy Gurdy, vocals
Kay B.: bass
Pade K.: bagpipe, whistles
My fist brush with Eluveitie was rather tragic. I have a bad habit of starting with a bands most recent and making any judgments from there. Big mistake. Eluveitie’s latest effort “Evocation I-…” is not a good reflection of the bands sound as it is for all intents and purposes an acoustic album. In that context it is a great album from a vastly talented band, but just not my cup of tea. I have to throw a big thank you out to my buddy Andy for turning me back on to this band and their masterwork “Slania”. In a perfect world, Slania, would be the standard by which I judge all folk-metal albums from henceforth, but given it’s immensity- that probably wouldn’t be fair to the other bands. Eluveitie will suit fans of, Ensiferum and Korpiklaani.
