ELUVEITIE Evocation II - Pantheon Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

Eight years after melodic death/folk metal masters ELUVEITIE released their acoustic album 'Evocation I', the Swiss musicians have stored their electronic instruments again in the rehearsal room. "The time feels right to go on with 'Evocation II'. It's time for the album," tells mastermind Chrigel, who revived the great concept after three successful albums in the usual ELUVEITIE style. '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. Anyone who will join ELUVEITIE on this journey will quickly notice that the character of each song is equal to the one of the Gods the song is about - and there is a lot more to discover! Because for real fans, this masterpiece is not only a rich bonanza of fascinating folk tunes, but also a foray through the band's history. In a lot of hidden and less hidden details, ELUVEITIE use motives from older songs that feature a topical reference to the world of Celtic gods, and thus the band has built a number of bridges for you to engage in a real treasure hunt. "Obtained to Celtic mythology, 'Evocation II' is the album where everything converges and returns to its origin: the otherworld," comments Chrigel. The singing on 'Evocation II' is also in Gallic (old Celtic) and offers great atmosphere, while for the lyrics, ELUVEITIE have worked together with Celtic scientists from all over Europe to do justice to this masterpiece. The lyrics are also reproduced in ancient handwriting from 2000 years ago in the booklet, in the style of the Defixio from Larzac, a well-known magical, Celtic curse inscription. Side D of the LP is etched.
