Eluveitie - Video For New Single Unveiled


Eight years after folk metal masters Eluveitie released their acoustic album Evocation I, the Swiss musicians have stored their electronic instruments again in the rehearsal room. Evocation II - Pantheon will be released on August 18th via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, they finally released the music video of the song "Epona". Hear the new material and watch the new band members in action below.

The clip was shot in and around the city of Avenches, in the Southwest of Switzerland. This city is, especially for Eluveitie, very rich in history as it was once called Aventicum, the capital of the Celtic Tigurini (who were part of the Helvetii tribe) and therefore also the home of one of the most iridescent characters of Celtic history: The mighty sovereign Divico who was brave enough to confront the Roman emperor Gaius Julius Caesar. The clip was produced by Jason Sereftug-Borruso (Writer, Director) and Alexis Gudinchet (Assistant Director).







"We're super happy and proud to present you 'Epona' - the first single of our upcoming album Evocation II - Pantheon!", states front man Chrigel Glanzmann. "The song is an ode to the riding goddess queen of the Celtic pantheon! And this not only lyrically. Also musically, for even though 'Epona' is an acoustic track, the song surges ahead with verve, power and speed and dashes like a galloping horse! It is a good song to give you a first glimpse of the raw, wild, honest, very folky and thoroughly celtic character of Evocation II - Pantheon!"

'musicians have stored their electronic instruments again in the rehearsal room' this makes no sense.

They should stick to this style, as I've said since the first "Evocation." It's a lot better than their metal stuff.

The first Evocation is the only album of them I don't like that much. To each his own, I guess...

I really liked Anna, but technically, she wasn't that great of a singer, imo. And Cellar Darling is just meh. This is good. Not great, they've certainly done better, but this is far far above Call of the Mountains (now that's shitty).
