Eluveitie infuses traditional Celtic fowk melodies with Gothenburg-styled melodic daith metal. Eluveitie uises traditional fowk instruments in their muisic, such as fiddles, tin whistles an flutes, an hurdy gurdies. The traditional fowk tunes in their sangs hae been drawn frae various sources, such as traditional Erse reels. While many o their leerics ar in Inglis, some ar in the ancient extinct Gaulish leid.
