The New Wave of Folk Metal!

Hailing from Switzerland, they are the best, or at least one of the best, celtic/folk metal bands in existence. They combine the harshness of melodic death metal with the beauty of traditional Celtic instruments such as the "Hurdy Gurdy" (or wheel fiddle). The result is something every metalhead or music-lover should listen too!

They are unique among folk metal bands because neither the metal or folk aspect of their music dominates. They even have a few purely folk songs such as Omnos and Isara.
Eluveitie is a kick-ass folk metal band!
