Would I have a better chance of enjoying Everything Remains (As it Never Was) or Helvetios?

Also never really checked out Varg -- where should I start there?
It's pretty hard to say that songs like The Siege sound like pop music...

but it could be said that they do have more female-presence in their music. They've had female vocals present since Ven though.

All I know is the t-shirts were $25, I didn't look at anything else.

Odd review. Pop music? Have you heard Anna in The Siege? They always had backup vocals that were female and were more chanting/melodic.

Chrigel/Anna on vocals:

I guess I mean more of a metalcore sound than "pop" lol I sort of put them in the same category. And I just don't like her voice, I find it unpleasant.

Anyway I didn't mean to turn this into trash-talking eluveitie. I respect them and I will attempt to listen to Helvetios again. But why no songs from their first 2, arguably better albums? Seems like they just made a very conscious departure to a more mainstream sound. Bands that ignore their early material always upset me, and a band that doesn't play a single song out of 2 albums is strange indeed.

They put me more in the mind of "post-Gothenburg" than metalcore. Like Damage Done-era Dark Tranquillity. Take the song "Your Gaulish War" for example... it's basically a DT song with added folk instruments.

I suppose I agree with that. I love their first 3 albums and I guess I could draw a parallel there with a folky DT. The problem is I feel like they are moving towards a folky new In Flames :-p
