Eluveitie’s saga of success began just when main-man and mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann decided to form ELUVEITIE with the goal to fuse Gothenburg styled melodic death metal with ancient folk melodies and themes to a powerful mixture that would soon become the "New Wave Of Folk Metal“. Of course, all that is history by now and the so-called "studio project“ grew into a respected, well-known and active band.
Eluveitie describes themselves as The new wave of folk metal. The band's style incorporates characteristics of melodic death metal combined with the melodies of traditional Celtic music. They use traditional European instruments, including the hurdy-gurdy and bagpipes, amidst guitars and both clean and harsh vocals. Their lyrics include references to Celtic mythology, particularly of Celtic Gaul. The lyrics are often in a reconstructed form of the extinct ancient language Gaulish. The name of the band comes from graffiti on a vessel from Mantua. The inscription in Etruscan letters reads Eluveitie, which has been interpreted as the Etruscan form of the Celtic Helvetios presumably referring to a man of Helvetian descent living in Mantua.
