Biography

Eluveitie (pronounced el-vey-ti) is a celtic folk metal band from Switzerland, formed in 2002. They use both traditional Swiss and Celtic instruments alongside electric guitars and drums. Their music is known to be inspired by Gothenburg's Melodic Death Metal Scene and their lyrics are written in a mix of English, Gaullic and Swiss dialects. Their first album was the self financed "Vên," released in 2003. After that they have released four full-length albums: "Spirit" (2006), "Slania" (2008), "Evocation I - The Arcane Dominion" (2009) and "Everything Remains As It Never Was" (2010). The penultimate of those is completely acoustic and contains various guest artists, such as Fredy Schnyder from Nucleus Torn playing the hammered dulcimer on two tracks, Oli S. Tyr from the German medieval band Faun contributing the sounds of the long-necked lute on the title track, Alan Nemtheanga from the Irish pagan metal band Primordial presents his vocals in two tracks, Mina The Fiddler from the experimental folk band Branâ Keternâ playing the 5-stringed viola on two tracks and Sarah Wauquiez, their former band member, playing Zugerörgeli (helvetic accordion) on one track.
