Italian folk power metallers Elvenking have just revealed the title and the release date for their upcoming album, the successor of Era. The new album will have the ambitious title of The Pagan Manifesto and will be released on May 9th via AFM Records. Below you can have a glimpse of what the album will be about.
Good news from folk metallers Elvenking! On December 16th, the band will enter Domination Studios in San Marino to begin the recordings of the anticipated new album, the successor of Era (2012). Simone "Symohn" Morettin is going to record the drum tracks next week laying down the foundations of what the band already considers "the ultimate Elvenking manifesto". The new album is expected next year which means you won't have to wait that long. Also, the band is setting the bar very high on this one.
Elvenking have released the first video from their new album Era. The chosen song was "The Loser" and the video can be seen below. It was written and directed by Simone Vrech. The Italian power/folk outfit is gearing up for the release of their new output on September 14th under AFM Records.
Italian power/folk metal band Elvenking has issued a new update this time regarding their new yet-untitled, upcoming album and the guest musicians that will be featured on it. The band writes: "This summer is magical boys and girls! We hope you are already enjoying your summer holidays or that you planning your trips and your relax time."
"As you know the new Elvenking album is ready and it will be hopefully released in September 2012. We will inform you about the final release date as soon as we'll have more news about it. We'll try to give you some updates about the new album every week. In the meantime we are preparing things around the new video clip shooting and we will film it while you'll have a swim at your favourite pool or a good hot night at the seaside!"
Italian power/folk metal band Elvenking has released the following updates: "Hey everybody! We just got back from Rhapsody Of Fire tour where we had a blast with the guys, their crew and especially with the great fans we met on the road! But now it's time to move on, and we have tons of new things for you coming up! So... let's go!"
Italian power folk metallers Elvenking have checked in with the following update:
"At the moment we are building up a new rehearsal room, where we'll soon start working on the new album material. A lot of new songs and ideas have been written and we will put something together soon and see what is going to happen. But it is too soon to talk about this. We will try to keep you informed on the progress.
Even if we will keep on working on the new album songs for all the Fall it does not mean we will be far from the stages. And what a great Fall we will have! If someone of you remember correctly it is exactly 10 years since the release of our debut album Heathenreel (yes, it was 2001, gosh!) so we want to celebrate this birthday in a proper way! So we will be on stage in Fall 2011 for a number of gigs with a lot of songs from the famous first album plus another choice of songs from the other albums rarely or never played live! It will be something special you do not have to miss!!! It's "10 years in Heathenry"!"
After 12 years with the band, drummer Zender had left Elvenking. The band commented:
"We had a wonderful journey with Zender in these long 12 years. Thinking about where we started together back in the time and what we have achieved along the path it really looks incredible. We were a bunch of kids when we started together with nothing but a dream, and now we are here. We cannot feel anything but proud and we are sure Zender feels exactly the same. Being in a band like Elvenking it is not the easiest thing in the world, since you are not that big to live out of your passion, but you're big enough to have a lot of stress, busy days, lots of things to do and manage, long travels, flights, etc etc. The split has been in total friendship and with no bad blood at all. Zender came to visit the band in the rehearsal room also the other day to share some words and drinks together. All Elvenking members, crew and friends wish Zender all the best possible for his future and we're sure our roads will cross again sooner or later"
"The Cabal", the new video from Italian metallers Elvenking, can be viewed at this location. The clip was filmed on June 5-6 with director Mirco Andreis, who previously worked with the band on "The Divided Heart" video.
"The Cabal" comes off the band's forthcoming album, Red Silent Tides, which will be released on September 17 in Europe (November 9 in North America) via AFM Records. Everything you need to know about this album was previously reported here.
Italian metallers Elvenking have set Red Silent Tides as the title of their new album. The release date (as well as different edition details of the album) will be announced soon.
The CD was recorded at Piranha studios in Karsdolf, Germany with producer Dennis Ward (Angra, Pink Cream 69, Primal Fear). The album's cover artwork was created by Samuel Araya, who has previously worked on Cradle Of Filth's Thornography CD.

Italian metallers Elvenking have issued the following update on their official website:
''While the band is still around Europe playing (thanks to all the fans who came to our latest gigs!) the Elvenking machine is still going on at full speed behind the scenes.
At the moment Dennis Ward is mixing the album in Germany, while on the other side of the planet, artist Samuel Araya (you probably remember him for the (in)famous Cradle Of Filth's Thornography cover for example) is giving life to the atmospheres contained in the album through his paintings.
And while the album production is taking its final shape, the band is ready to shoot the video for the new track "The cabal" on June 5th and 6th, with director Mirco Andreis who previously worked with the band on "The Divided Heart" video.
