Eluveitie - Helvetios
As a casual folk metal fan, it pretty much doesn't get much better than this. "Helvetios" is basically a more upbeat, more fun, more catchy Amon Amarth album with actual folk instruments - not just keyboards pretending. I love it. "A Rose for Epona" is probably my favorite track on the album. I dunno, I just love those female vocals. My favorite live folk metal band does a good job at recreating what makes them so fun live on record!
