From Wikipedia:

Eluveitie (/É›lˈveɪti/ el-vay-ti)[6] is a Swiss folk metal band from Winterthur, Zurich founded by Chrigel Glanzmann. The band was formed in 2002 and their first EP, Vên was released in 2003. Vên was a studio project of Glanzmann’s but its success led to the recruitment of a full band. They describe themselves as “The new wave of folk metal”. The band then released a full-length album, Spirit in June 2006. In November 2007, Eluveitie was signed by Nuclear Blast[7] The first product of the collaboration, Slania, was released in February 2008. The album peaked at number 35 in the Swiss charts and number 72 in the German charts.[8][9]

Eluveitie use traditional instruments amidst guitars and harsh vocals. The lyrics are often in the now extinct languageGaulish. The name of the band comes from graffiti on a vessel from Mantua (ca. 300 BC).[10] The inscription in Etruscan letters reads eluveitie, which has been interpreted as the Etruscan form of the Celtic (h)elvetios (“the Helvetian”), presumably referring to a man of Helvetian descent living in Mantua.
