I started listening to Eluveitie because of the women. I stayed for so much more. This music is my heart and soul, my guide and my destiny.

To confession 449: Orchestras and other such ensembles pull it off all the time. I know it’s difficult to create such arrangements, but if they’re just going to have these musicians miming on stage most of the time why not just have the extra special instruments on the recording and play a simplified version live, or even play a complicated version with the backing track and aknowledge it.

I wish people would stop calling Mathias lillmans the "inferior mathias". Nygard and lillmans are both talented and lovable and don't need to be compared.

I’m not turning this into a confession because I can already see where this is going, so I’ll just save everyone from the trouble and answer you:

People aren’t really saying Mathias Nygård is superior to Mathias Lillmåns, they’re both talented and shouldn’t be compared just because they share a name. It’s just a joke.

As a writer who is building a semi-folk, historically-fictional book series, I love listening to certain Folk Metal bands and their songs. I listen to Turisas’ Stand up and Fight when writing a last stand of certain characters; Equilibrium’s Blut im Auge when writing a charge or a battle; Finntroll’s Solsagan when a witch or a dark segment in my story appears; Metsatöll’s Kivine Maa when describing a certain culture or a kingdom, and so on and so forth. It really empowers me and I feel that with this musical help, my stories are better and I “write” better. Hail folk metal!

Not everyone hates Heri, he is literally my favorite person in the genre. He is not trying to fool anyone, he keeps his motives clear, speaks his mind, is open to debate (and actually change opinion if you have a point) and is a huge sweetheart to everyone who approaches him personally. He also puts noses on his smiley faces, which is just adorable :-)

I love how people around here are constantly making fun of their favorite musicians. Like, yes, Heri is a cartoon character who only wears black tank tops; Vreth is the inferior Mathias who has the less perfect pronounce, can’t fight weasels and accidently deletes months of work in a second; Jari is the nerdiest serial killer ever; Warlord is always screaming and his outfits must always have at least 30 belts, 3000 spikes or both; Chrigel can’t English; Teemu is a majestic tiny manta ray; etc etc. These are all based on love. If you can’t make fun of them, they’re not your favorite yet.

To confesson 437: If you expect a band with such intricate music (refering to the multiple instruments) to play everything live, then you have realy fking high expectations. I bet that if eluveitie didn’t play live shows you’d be complaining about it.

Wintersun is what truly got me into music, to be honest. Of course I’ve been listening to music for years, enjoying it at parties, or while I chat with my friends, or browse the internet, etc. It was always there, as it is for most people, but it was never my focus on a situation. I wouldn’t stop everything I was doing just to listen to a song. Wintersun made me realize how deeply music can touch you, how much it can affect you. I wasn’t aware that people were able to put together sounds in a way so beautiful that could make you cry.

I had the chance to buy Farsotstider by Thyrfing today. I didn’t. Damn, how I regret this. I got home and decided to give the album a try and it’s just… mind-blowing. I hope they still have it next time I get money.

I feel like there’s so much negativity from everyone around Týr, especially about Heri. I think he’s a gorgeous, sweet, talented and funny man. I don’t know why everyone dislikes him.

I’m going to paganfest (my first metal show) and taking my friend who only knows what I’ve told her about metal at all who has never been to a concert. In addition we’re both tiny blonde girls. This should be fun.

I love the feeling you get when you listen to folk metal. Svartsot is one of my favourite bands, and they never fail to motivate me to do my essays for school. Folk metal is the cure to procrastination!!!

I have ADHD, and even with medication I still find it hard to concentrate on things. The only thing that helps me focus when studying is Eluveitie’s music. I have no idea why.

I love folk metal, but sometimes I can’t fully enjoy it because it’s hard for me to listen to music in a language I don’t understand.

Vodka by Korpiklaani always makes my day a lot happier, even though I don’t drink it still helps my self esteem and makes me feel more powerful.
