Metal that relates to elves, swords, epic battles, fairies, and other fantasy themes. Often recorded in Scandinavian forests, and upstate New York with the aid of elf metalheads who play the violin a little too well. Afionados of elf-metal can be identified by their dragonfroce t-shirts, loneliness and pointy ears. It is perhaps the coolest subgenre of metal ever created.

Ben: Yeah man, It's incredible, I love the song about the elf princess!
Shane: Turn down that goddamn Elf Metal, you elf nerds. You're frightening away the ladies!
