Eluveitie – Celtic Folk Metal in Atlanta

Eluveitie - "Slania" (2008)

Yes, Atlanta folk metal heads, start saving your shekels and drachmas now because February is shaping up to be a busy month, a regular folk metal paradise. The mighty Polka Black Metal mavens, Finntroll, will rollick at Masquerade on February 1st and Eluveitie, the Swiss band that plays “authentic, traditional Celtic folk music combined in a unique way with modern styled melodic death metal,” will hit the Masquerade on February 26th with 3 Inches of Blood, Holy Grail and System Divide.

Now try and wrap your head around this: Eluveitie incorporates instruments like the hurdy-gurdy, flute and bagpipes (!) into their unique combination of Celtic music and death metal.  Did I mention that their early work was sung in Gaulish, a dead Celtic language that predates Latin?
