Catuvolcus: Gergovia

This extreme-metal concept album about Caesar's Roman army based on ancient and modern writings with lyrics sung in French won't make a lick of sense to you even if you speak French. Singer Pierre-Alexandre Plessix practically rips his vocal cords out here, making the second full-length album from Canadian band Catuvolcus the name means "battle wolf" in the extinct Celtic language of Gaul primarily for existing fans.

That said, the band's blend of black metal, folk metal and melodic instrumentation (as well as its status as "the first Gaul black-metal band," according to Wikipedia) may attract head-banging history buffs or those seeking the novelty factor. But this stuff is not for the weak.
