Elvenking

Following in the pixie boots of England's Skyclad, Finland's Finntroll, and several other such strange creatures, Italy's Elvenking unite the disparate worlds of heavy metal and acoustic folk music underneath lyrics spinning mystical yarns steeped in both legend and imagination. Founded in 1997 by guitarists Aydan and Jarpen, the group soon added vocalists Damnagoras and Kleid, keyboardist/violinist Elyghen, bassist Gorlan, and drummer Zender (how about those stage names?) for the recording of 2001's Heathenreel and 2004's Wyrd -- both of them released by German label AFM. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi
full bio

Comments

The bio is cool...
Being folk metal, the vocals suit the music perfectly. You people saying the vocals suck really need to listen to more folk metal music.
swordofmyfat h e r s
Damnagoras is f**king awesome. Get over yourselves. They've decided to add more of a hard rock influence to their music, and that's their decision, not yours. GROW UP. sheesh...
Yes just heard it again, this singer is killing the band !
Love folk metal
Eh. Not really a fan.
I like them as well but the vocals are sometimes lacking and sometimes sounding punkish, sorry but I need a power METAL singer !
my favorite thing about this band it is a pagan band
Yeah they are pretty good for the most part, but I have to say their growler is really not great. Sometimes I can really enjoy that style of vocals, but in this band I think they detract from things.
Im surprised at my comment 1 year ago. Ive discoved that I like this band. Bullet for my Valintine? What an idiot. Hahahahaha.. .
This band gives me the most awesome feelings, its like im soaring through a magical land. I see vast hills of green and wyrd magical creatures ;)
WHY?!
WHY can I not get Neverending nights to seed for me?!?!
ARGH.
Also - Elvenking rocks.
I liked the vocals!
bittercandyh e r o
sounds great but the vocals bug me so close pandora next time :3
if the vocals bother you why ru listening nobody cares if you dont like it dont listen to it and dont complain
Cant say I like this band much at all. Vocals are annoying... like bullet for my valintine or some s**t...
Hannah. Try Ebay or Amazon, that's where I get most my CDs (aside from the select few that are or at one time were sold at Best Buy).
HEY does anyone know where I should buy Elvenking music online? It obviously doesn't sell in stores in the USA (well, none that I've found.)

oh also what people are saying about disliking the vocals, I really like them, they're unique and just sound good to me
Elvenking is one of my favorite bands ever! My roomate also tells me he would like elvenking if it werent for the singer, he claims the singer bothers him too much. For the life of me I cant figure out why though, he sounds like any other lead singer to me. Besides, the point is the music anyways.
I must admit, the vocals bug me a bit. Not enough to stop listening though, 'cause the music itself is fantastic.
I love this band so much. Love the fantasy themes in the lyrics as well. My favorite song of theirs is Seasonspeech :)
I have to agree with Blue here, lyrics are a bit weird, but then again so are all other nerd metal lyrics. Great sound and vocalist.
lol go play WOW blue
i love the back music but the singer runes most songs
Why is Pandora missing TWO albums from this amazing group? They are missing both Two Tragedy Poets, a wonderful acoustic album, and their newest release, Red Silent Tides. Come on Pandora, you can do better than this! Also, the bio is inaccurate. Jarpen left and was replaced by Rafahel. Also, Damna and Kleid were never vocalists at the same time. After recording Heathenreel, Damna temporarily left Elvenking for health reasons. Kleid did the vocals on Wyrd, and then Damna returned.
If I might add, Korpiklaani has an awesome polka/folk/m e t a l sound. Turisas is also an excellent one.
i love ensiferum, i always get theri songs stuck in my head :)
viperdak
you guys should check out Ensiferum if you like EK. They call their style viking/metal . so awesome
Italy = my favorite country for metal bands. Elvenking is among the top ten best IMO. And "The Divided Heart" being their greatest song. :)
I always like how their songs always have so much goin on in them at once, makes them fun to listen to again and agian and again.
FOLK YEAH!!!
Yeah Elvenking is just THAT awesome, that it also got me to start taking metal as a whole more seriously, where folk metal remains my favorite... Funny though that anyone I mention it to locally is like, "FOLK metal?!?!?!"
Elvenking, and by extension the folk metal genre as a whole, may very well be a sort of 'gateway' for my non-metal enthusiast sister - it was somewhat of a surprise to her when she mentioned she liked the song I was playing and I told her it was an Italian folk metal band. Huzzah for subverting preconceptio n s !
yea ive heard that Tuomas has already started writing for NW's next album
Definitely.
reccomend heathenreel anyone?
NW might be recording again soon, but DF probably not yet.
Is "Dragonforce " or "Nightwish" recording again.Can you keep posted?
I actually like the vocals.
Not liking the vocal style so far, but they get points for having what seems to be a fiddle in their music.
Thank you, OMW! Seasonspeech is also great!
"Seasonspeec h " has a really awesome vocal arrangement.
seasonspeech just came on, first song by them ive heard, it was reallllly awesome!! liked all the differnt vocal parts
Wow, you're right Swan. Conjuring has a very interesting sound indeed.
I honestly had no idea that there was even 1 group that combined folk music with metal prior to Pandora - that there's an entire folk-metal genre is even more surprising (and welcome!). Of the stuff I've heard so far, most of it is very hit and miss but Elvenking has been consistently good.
Okay, "Conjuring the 14th," has a very different sound for Elvenking. I like it!
Sweeeeet!
Without Pandora I wouldve never known the glory of folk-metal. just awesome!!!
Break out the banjo and distotion.
randy.schrei b e r
I really dug their earlier stuff, but listened to the Scythe and thought it was not very folk metal, and a big let-down. Hopefully their '08 release was a return to form...
there 2008 album is there best in alot of ways. its not on here but its good. lighter and softer more medolic. but mostly acustic. pandora, you could really use it. its called "two tragedy poets and caravan of weird figures".
