Eluveitie, 3 Inches of Blood to tour North America in February

This February, Switzerland's Eluveitie will join Vancouver, Canada's Three Inches of Blood for what is looking to be an awesome North American tour. 

I've just gotten into both of these bands in the last few months; I've posted about each of them a few times, but boiled down to their core I would describe Eluveitie as Folk Metal with celtic influences and Three Inches of Blood as the evolutionary form of Judas Priest - bluesy metal riffs with Halford-esque vocals.  Both bands are very talented, and both have released new albums in the last year. 

Eluveitie's unique brand of metal uses bagpipes, various guitars and mandolins, as well as the hurdy-gurdy, the handcranked instrument of choice of renaissance French musicians.  With 8 members onstage, all playing legitimate instruments (I'm looking at you, Slipknot) I'm sure Eluveitie can put on quite the show.  The pure power of Three Inches of Blood sounds like a blast to experience live as well.    

Here are the tour dates, gonna do my best to make it to the St. Paul show, we'll see what's going on in early February.
