They don’t have any Celtic bands in their collection but musically they are OK.
Ok, this thing fell on my hands . It’s Metal but it is also using Celtic styles. I hear pipes and whistles, a little bit of the fiddle jig there and yes the wonderful melodies. However I am a bit hesitant here…I checked up the band’s site and I don’t see anyone from the band giving reference to any Celtic bands that I know of. They all listen to typical metal music. So it makes you ask…are they or are they not?
Here’s one interesting info I got from Wiki: The lyrics are often in the extinct language Gaulish. Eluveitie is Helvetic Gaulish for “I am the Helvetian”, referring to an inscription dating to the earliest record of the Celtic Helvetii tribe from what is now Switzerland.
So is it really Celtic music plus Metal or are they just using Celtic music as a way to gain more acceptance from a number of people who might follow both styles of music. Either way this song really impressed me.
