Eluveitie-Spirit (2006)

Absolutely stunning debut full-length from celtic pagan metal band, Eluveitie. Everything here is top notch, with wonderfully crafted riffs, rousing male and female vocals, and a deeply celtic feel to all the music (In my opinion, this blows Cruachan right out of the water... but like I said, that's my opinion). The real highlight here is the integrating of traditional celtic instruments. On this album, we have fiddles, Irish Flute, tin whistles, Bass-Shalm, Bass-Crumhorn, Gaita, Uilleann Pipes, a Hurdygurdy, Accordions, 10-string Mandolas, and Bodhráns. An absolutely amazing debut, and HIGHLY recommended to anyone of the celtic music slant, who want something that'll deliver a kick to the teeth in addition to the celtic trad. music. Fear Dark.
