Eluveitie – Helvetios (2012) – Review

Ah thank you, oh Helvetian Ones! You just have to love the drummer on steroids that the Swiss band Eluveitie (apparently the old pagan name of today's Switzerland) employs. This guy seems to work himself from one nervous breakdown frenzy to another on his drums.

Combined with the savvy mix of modern day and archaic instruments AND again together with the usual growls and rumblings, this album becomes an astonishing piece of Pagan Melodic Death Metal  or Folk Metal.
