Ensiferum, Turisas, Tyr, & Eluveitite

Release Date: 2008-05-14

Folk metal may seem like an oxymoron, but Ensiferum has made the genre their own. The traditional harshness of metal is flawlessly infused with surprisingly clean and melodic vocals, making for a catchy and original musical style. Lyrical themes are reminiscent of heroic, middle-age fantasy tales, while the dynamic song structures and shredding guitars make for a must-see live show. $20/25, 7pm, White Rabbit, 2410 N. St. Mary’s, (210) 737-2221.
