Original news posted on 16.10.2009

Swiss pagan horde Eluveitie just finished the recordings for the new album which is scheduled for release in spring 2010. The band also revealed the artwork and album title of their third effort: Everything Remains As It Never Was.

Currently mainman Chrigel Glanzmann attends the mixing sessions with legendary Colin Richardson and Martyn "Ginge" Ford in Wales. "Somehow it seems almost unreal to me: The recordings for our upcoming album are finished! Right now I'm in the Welsh Nott-In Pill studios with Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head, Kreator, Behemoth, Bullet For My Valentine and many more) and Martyn "Ginge" Ford working on the mix of the album. And believe me, the mix will be mind-blowing! Well, what can I say... Colin is just a pure genius!

We can look back at two extremely intense months of working our asses off recording the album. It has been an intense, exhausting, but also satisfying time with all of us giving 150% in. Many things developed very spontaneously and songs became very authentic, pure and genuine.

Speaking of the recording I have to mention the amazing job of Tommy Vetterli for sure, who really worked his balls off for the album! Once again he assured his position among the world's best engineers. That's what Colin Richardson stated about his work: "one of the best drum and guitar trackings I've ever heard"!

Furthermore we can already give you a first glimpse of the artwork, which has again been done by famous artist Travis Smith, who already did the cover fro "Spirit".

And also we'd like to reveal the album title: Everything Remains As It Never Was

Lyrically the album consists of diverse stories and narrations from ancient Gallia: Historical occurrences and fates of individuals as well as myths and legends bequeathed throughout the centuries. Yet the lyrics pretty much focus the "human" aspects of those historical happenings and also behold them with some questioning and probably also with a slightly bitter-sweet smile, being well aware of the fact that today we simply cannot tell, how things exactly have been back then.

But enough babbled for now - back to some mixing work!"

Does anyone know if this album counts as the second part of the cd they did earlier this year, or if that will be a different release? I kept seeing that there would be an Evocation II on a lot of sites.

"The band also revealed the artwork and album title of their third effort: "Everything Remains (As It Never Was)"."
This is their fourth album.

There is supposed to be an Evocation II, but I guess this doesn't seem like it? I assumed they'd release it before any other album, however.

yeah, this is the second part, u know well, Evocation II, maybe they changed the album name. and it will a normal album, i mean not an acoustic. i would like to ask one too, if they finished the recording, why must wait to 2010 spring to release? it's a half year yet.
MeloDeathViking - 16.10.2009 at 21:15  
Thanks guys. I figured that's what it was, but it just seemed wierd since no one ever said anything about it. I believe this one will be back to their normal style now.
soulintent - 16.10.2009 at 21:23  
Oh hey, apparently this is NOT Evocation II. This was posted by Chrigel in the Eluveitie forum:

"And this brings me to the next thing to mention: Yes, after an acoustic release we're thoroughly up for a massive metal album again! So "Evocation I" kinda became the well known "calm before the storm".
Some of the songs on this album I began to write quite a long time ago, some others developped in a very short time during the last couple of months. All in all I think that this album becomes our most dark and severe release so far - brimmed with mystical, convoluted and partly insanely fast celtic folk melody lines, but at the same time with pure, juggernautish metal. The album's probably more 'metal' than any other release we did so far."

I guess we all assumed they'd do Evocation II right after Evocation I, then.

It was never really said that Evocation II would be another acoustic album though, just a mate to go along with the first one. It could still very well be a more agressive album, but still pair with Evocation I. I still don't know though.

Ahh sweet news !
Zmaj Ognjeni Vuk - 17.10.2009 at 01:45  
I hope that the music will be in disproportion with the cover and the album name, which are unoriginal and dumb, respectively.

Is the girl and scene of artwork the same one as in for "Slania"

I would assume against that, considering how Slania was released last year and a child was on the album cover. The person on Everything Remains (As it Never Was) appears to be a considerable amount older than Slania girl one year eight months later.
Black Conundrum - 17.10.2009 at 04:11  
I think the cover artwork is pretty cool.
FeskarN - 17.10.2009 at 13:46  
Nice cover. Hope it will be as good as "Spirit" and "Slania".
MetalSpider - 17.10.2009 at 19:50  
Can't wait to hear some new Eluveitie!
MétalNoir - 17.10.2009 at 22:25  
I assumed Evocation II would be an acoustic album... But that's great, I didn't like The Arcane Dominion anyway: Eluveitie don't need to try to sound different by releasing acoustic stuff, cause they already play something unique. Can't wait! ^^
Angel_Lament - 18.10.2009 at 00:21  
The artwork is so nice....arent they supposed to release the sec Evocation?
Jon - 08.11.2009 at 20:19  
Oh good, the guy who mixes Trivium and Slipknot. That ensures the guitars will be mixed way too bloody loud to hear anything. Audio clipping ftw I guess. Nice cover art though.

Actually he produced loads of albums including Carcass' "Heartwork" which has an amazing sound.

yeah really folky & wintry cover!

The band photo reminds me of Earth, Wind & Fire:)

Nice tracklist... though the cover isnt very clear..!!
MetalSpider - 09.11.2009 at 02:08  
Can't wait for this one!
Rimfrost - 09.11.2009 at 12:04  
Now thats a bad album title! I don't doubt the albums quality, but it is not THAT hard to come up with a decent title is it?
Dominus - 09.11.2009 at 16:01  
I want now!!!!!!!!!!

That album's apparent greatness has eluded me so far, but I didn't realize the guy was a bonafide metal producer. I'll look him up; hopefully he'll do a better job of meshing the folk and metal bits on this album than they did on Slania, it sounded like two albums playing at the same time. That was partly compositional though. And yes the title is rather unbecoming for a folky album. Or any album.

Another album? fucking hell...wait a little and write fresh music instead, theyre starting to become one of those "we churn the same stuff out every year" kinda bands.

You beat me to that comment, agree completely.

And alhough it doesn't have any bearing on the music, the cover is pretty poor. Just looks like half an hour's worth of photoshop with an overuse of contrast.
Overlord_PT - 11.11.2009 at 11:24  
Looking forward to this new album
Ellrohir - 11.11.2009 at 14:04  
And the mass cheers in trance...
FrozenJoy - 18.03.2011 at 22:46  
Pfff, this album was a big letdown... It can't even be compared to Spirit or Slania... (at least that's what I think)
