Staff review by
No much people know this band, and that's because they're one of the most underrated band In the Folk Metal scene, with the recent explosion of Folk Metal bands, Excelsis should have received their chance with a big label a long time ago, but nobody said that life was fair.

Helvetic Folk Power Metal is what Excelsis does, but is a special type of Power Metal if you ask me, because no typical fast-paced double bass tracks will be found here, instead, mid-paced and anthem-like songs, you'll feel like in a campfire listening stories from a group of drunken bards singing with a mug of ale in their hands each, instead of a group of long-haired-sword-bearers-dragon-slayer warriors of Heavy Metal. Thank god.
