Elvenking is a folk metal band formed in Sacile, Italy in October 1997 by guitarists Aydan and Jarpen. In March 1998, singer Damnagoras joined the band, but it wasn't until the following September that the group found a definite stability with the arrival of Zender on the drums. Right from the beginning, Elvenking set themselves the objective of finding a formula which can combine power metal, folk music and extreme sounds in a unique mixture. The one and only demo To Oak Woods Bestowed that was recorded in 2000 led the band to sign directly a contract with German leading label AFM-Records. Read more about Elvenking on Last.fm.
