      Eluveitie's first E.P. (2004).

      Eluveitie's first official release shows a lot of promise, but is still only an ever-so-slightly trumped-up reworking of their demo recording. A metal band with a heavy emphasis on folk, this is at least a little different from the norm, and unlike most folk metal releases that supplement the fairly straightforward metal performance with flute flourishes, the rock instruments take a distinct backseat here, partly thanks to the poor production job that relegates them to little more than a fuzz at times.

      Flutes and pipes are the primary instruments in roughly half of the E.P., with only 'Ôrô' and 'Druid' being full-blown metal songs with growled vocals and folk instruments still in the foreground. As the production quality weakens the effect of these more extreme sections, not to mention the fact that they're pretty generic anyway, it tends to be the shorter instrumental tracks that hold the most interest, where the elements strike more of a balance.

      1. D'Vêritû Agâge D'Bitu
      2. Uis Elveti
      3. Ôrô
      4. Lament
      5. Druid
      6. Jêzaïg
