Eluveitie Premiere “Rebirth” Music Video

Eluveitie have premiered a new video for their new single “Rebirth.” This track will appear on the band’s new album, which is expected to be released next year.

Chrigel Glanzmann commented:

“After a longer period of playing many acoustic sessions, peaking in creating our much-anticipated second acoustic album Evocation II – Pantheon, we’re of course more than excited to finally go about our next metal juggernaut! We’ve been gathering ideas since quite a while and yes, we started working on our next metal album! It will still take a while until we’ll enter the studios again, since we first want to and will accomplish an amazing Evocation II touring cycle.

“But to soothe your [and our ;-)] waiting time, we recently gathered again in the legendary Newsound Studios to produce a first single off our upcoming metal album already – so welcome our youngest baby: ‘Rebirth’! We believe, it turned out a real monster of in-your-face folk metal and we’re super proud of it. And we hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do! As always it is full of pristine celtic folk music and contains treasures such as the old Irish traditional ‘Lads Of Laois’. But at the same time, ‘Rebirth’ comes with a steamrolling truckload of pure fucking metal!

“Conceptually the song takes a rather philosophical approach on ancient Celtic spirituality and mythology (and so will our upcoming album)! We take ancient mythological images to contemplate them from the view point of our every-day life (no matter if “we” lived 2,000 years ago or today, because we believe that the deep meaning and significance of these images didn’t change ever since)! ‘Rebirth’ deals with the ancient Celtic image of the “cauldron of rebirth”, with it’s meaning and with the darkest passages of our lives, through which we all have to go to arise reborn.”

“We’re excited to present to you the second single and video clip of our upcoming acoustic album: ‘Lvgvs’! Lugus is one of the most enigmatic, fascinating and mystical deities in the Celtic pantheon and occupies an important place in ‘Evocation II’! And so is our brand new single: ‘Lvgvs’. It comes with playful lightness, but is still very deep at the same time, full of mysticism, eclectic details, deepness and emotion. And furthermore we’re also happy to have our good, old buddy Netta Skog from ENSIFERUM and her accordion on board in this song!”

“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’!”

Eluveitie To Release New Album “Evocation II – Pantheon” In August

Eluveitie have announced that their new album “Evocation II – Pantheon” 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 folliwing

“‘Evocation II’ is a journey back to the source of it all: Antumnos, the otherworld. Join us on this wayfare through the Celtic pantheon, the world of the gods of our ancestors! The album cover expresses nothing less but exactly this! It’s full of symbolism and meaning and depicts things of deepest meaning and importance in Celtic mythology. The symbol contains the ‘great wheel’, symbolizing the wheel of the year with the four seasons and the equinoxes — forming the foundations of Celtic mythology. The great wheel is framed by a tripartite Enneagram; while three is an important number in Celtic mythology in general, we also face trinity in the Celtic pantheon! While the inner circle contains the initials of the names of the deities revered on this album — arranged tripartitedly according to their relations within the pantheon and place in the mythology — the outer circle utters an invitation as well as a blessing, a magical benediction for the one to dare to enter and set forth on this journey. The core of the symbol implies triune symbolism. The depiction shows the god Lugus, who was sometimes also addressed in the plural — Lugoves — since he’s a triune god, as well as a tricephalos. The ‘one with the skillful hand’ and ‘artisan of all skills’ is depicted and a combination of two important symbols: On the one hand he’s shown as ‘high king’ (and druid of druids), a typical gallic symbolism of an essential meaning and sigificance. On the other hand, he’s framed by the gallic ‘lord of the animals/lord of life’ symbolism: The character surrounded with diverse animals, but being strongly connected with all of them at the same time. So after all, the album cover vibrantly and mystically expresses the content of ‘Evocation II’! Join and let the journey begin!”
