Eluveitie

Eluveitie has been at the forefront of the folk metal scene for some time, first rising to international status with their 2008 sophomore effort Slania. They've recorded reliably ever since, with a style firmly rooted in Gothenburg-derived melodic death metal along with, of course, folk instruments and influenced blended in. Arguably they've been playing it a tad safe over the course of their career, never straying too far from their core ethic, but one can't fault them for sticking to what they know. They managed to survive three core members leaving in 2016 (that trio quickly formed Cellar Darling), with recent efforts like Ategnatos showing the band remaining in fine form.
