Most disputes this group from Switzerland is relatively style of music. All agree in opinion that it folk, and further disagreements arise: who calls them black folk who folk death, some simply called PEG-folk metal. But, what the hell disputes if all converge on a single thought - they are really cool!It's hard to put into words what sensations causes such harmonious interweaving the folklore highest standard and Iron Rubilovo! Very powerful and very beautiful. In addition, the striking of musicians. Alone singing three pieces, and what to say about them spread instrumental - flute, mandolin, and a bunch of little-known and seldom-national stuff. Compare this album with old fjords can be - the same combination of exquisite beauty, wildness and unwavering strength. The album is made of five, to estimate personally recommend!
Swiss folk metallers ELUVEITIE will release their new album, "Origins", on August 5 via Nuclear Blast Records. The cover artwork for the CD was created by ELUVEITIE frontman Chrigel Glanzmann .

Eluveitie clearly belongs to the fast growing Pagan Metal-scene, anyhow brings some "fresh air" into it. Eluveitie's sound is traditional, authentic celtic Folk Music combined in a unique way with modern styled Melodic Death Metal, strongly influenced by the classic “Göthenburg Sound”.With “Helvetios” the band created what is called the essence of their music by combining elements of all their efforts so far - taking them even further. From the raw and dark power of their early works to the anthemic tracks on "Slania" to the acoustic mysticism and beauty of "Evocation" to the heaviness and death metal brutality of "Everything Remains…". No doubt - “Helvetios” will take ELUVEITIE not only one step but a whole lot of steps further!

'Evocation II' conjures another time travel to eras long gone. As the title already reveals, the concept of the first opus will continue and is entirely dedicated to the Celtic mythology. Even more, »Evocation II« takes you into the Gallic pantheon and bows down to the Celtic Gods after which the song titles are named.
This release revives the Swiss folk metal band's oldest material, offering the band's 2006 debut album, 'Spirit,' as well as a re-recorded version of 2004 EP 'Ven.' The re-recording of the EP was done under the watchful eye and keen ear of Coroner guitarist Tommy Vetterli.
