Eluveitie have premiered a new video for their new song “Epona.” This track is from their new album “Evocation II – Pantheon,” which will be released on August 18. The effort, which is a sequel to their 2009 acoustic release “Evocation 1 — The Arcane Dominion”, will be the first to feature the band’s new revamped lineup: Jonas Wolf (guitar), Matteo Sisti (whistles, bagpipes, mandola), Nicole Ansperger (fiddle), Alain Ackermann (drums), Chrigel Glanzmann (vocals, whistles, mandola, bagpipes, bodhran), Fabienne Erni (vocals, celtic harp, mandola), Kay Brem (bass), Michalina Malisz (hurdy gurdy), and Rafael Salzmann (guitar).
Glanzmann said the following about the video, which was filmed in Avenches, Switzerland:
“We’re super happy and proud to present you ‘Epona’ — the first single of our upcoming album, ‘Evocation II – Pantheon’! 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’!”
