Eluveitie + KORPIKLAANI – photo review

Spread the metal:

Eluveitie + KORPIKLAANI

 

Summit Music Hall – Denver, CO
October 3rd, 2019

A night of pagan folk metal came happily to Denver last week, with Finland’s KORPIKLAANI and Switzerland’s Eluveitie ending a long metal drought in Colorado. Despite some competing metal (or metal-adjacent) shows, a solid crowd showed up.

KORPIKLAANI

 

Finland’s premier drinking-themed folk metal outfit KORPIKLAANI knows how to throw a party. They had huge pits going throughout most of the show as they humpaa’d their way through 15 years of beloved material.

 

    

ELUVETIE

I’m not really sure what to label Switzerland’s Eluveitie – they layer a lot of folk instruments on top of vaguely Gothenburg style melo-death metal. They certainly make for a visual spectacle, with 8 members on stage playing all kinds of non-electric instruments.
