|Eluveitie Origins Limited Gatefold Vinyl 2LP Set
· Initially formed back in 2002 as a mere studio project by main man and mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann, whose vision was to create a blend of Gothenburg-styled melodic death metal with ancient folk melodies and themes that would soon become the New Wave Of Folk Metal. Now, more than 12 years on, Eluveitie have established themselves as one of the most
successful Swiss metal acts.
· Ten years into their career, Eluveitie released their critically acclaimed fifth studio-album, ‘Helvetios’ (2012), followed by their 10 year anniversary compilation, ‘The Early Years’ (2012). The band toured relentlessly through
North America and Europe in support of ‘Helvetios’, alongside bands like Wintersun and Sabaton and the album charted all over the world. The current incarnation of the band features two new members: guitarist Rafael Salzmann - who took over strings in summer 2012 for Simeon ‘Sime’ Koch - and Nicole Ansperger, who replaced longtime member and violinist Meri Tadic.
· With the new line up solidified, Eluvieite made history this year as they become the first ever metal band to receive an award at the renowned Swiss Music Awards. The band won the Best Live Act National category, an entirely
fan voted award. Since taking home their Swiss Music Award, Eluveitie entered Swiss New Sound Studio to work on their sixth studio album ‘Origins’. The band decided to work with legendary producer Tommy Vetterli (Kreator, Coroner) as well as collaborating with Christine Lauterburg, a seasoned pro of the age-old tradition of Swiss yodelling. Christine’s singing adds yet another genuine and original twist to Eluvietie’s music.
· ‘Origins’ deals with the Celtic mythology, “or to be more precise, with aetiological tales from Gaul,” commented vocalist and frontman Chrigel Glanzmann. With the release of ‘Origins’, Eluveitie have set yet another benchmark for folk metal.
· Available on double vinyl in gatefold sleeve.
