Someone who's not a spelling retard?

I had to translate a bit of text for my friend, but it was kinda hard, and I had a blackout, and I feel like there a billion mistakes in there, and it doesn't make any sense =/ So can someone please check this for me?

Heidevolk play a unique folkmetalstyle which comes from a mix of epic vocal parts in the Dutch language, influences from the Dutch and Northern-European folkmusic, bulky swing-a-long parts alternated with melodious parts and at last a textual mark of Dutch-Germanic mythology and their love of nature. The name Heidevolk came into being during one of their many walks in the nature of Gelderland. These walks and the history of The Netherlands/Gelderland are an enormous source of inspiration for the band.
Heidevolk put on a heavily decorated show with early medieval costumes, horns, swords, shields, hides, and preferably long wooden tables and a swine on the spit.

Ah like that. Fun band, but I'm not sure if they're supposed to be a 'fun' band or not...

Well I'm not sure either. Just seemed more logical that way to me. I'm just a fellow Dutchman. woman.. person.

Well I'm thinking about it too much now, hence why I say this:
Maybe there should be a - between it?

I thought it seemed kind of confusing. So I high-lighted the parts I would change. But I haven't had a any complicated English classes in 5 years or so, so I can't tell you how reliable that is.

My friend went to a concert of them in Goudvishal. And everytime he's telling me about it he's laughing and telling me how drunk he was :) I've missed them once when they were playing here in Doetinchem about 2 years ago, i got the venue just too late :o
