Eluveitie Premiere “Exile Of The Gods” Music Video

Eluveitie have premiered a new song titled “Exile Of The Gods.” You can find an official video for that track below:

Chrigel Glanzmann commented:

“We are very excited to share our new single ‘Exile Of The Gods’ with you – after ‘Aidus’ the ‘second page’ in Eluveitie’s next chapter.

Our current path leads us way back in time. And back to the present! Our new song cycle is all based on a very old mythic text – the hermetic lament. Although it didn’t originate from Celtic culture, we know today that its words were taken on, assimilated, and taught by the Celtic druids henceforth. In the interpretatio celtae it’s teachings were ascribed to the tricephalic Celtic god Lugus.

This ancient text contains some kind of a prophecy which holds some very serious and important words for us modern people of today – even if we assume that it’s not talking about our era (which personally I believe it does, though).

Among many other things that the lament of Lugus foretells: ‘…of thy faith nothing will remain but an empty tale, which thine own children in time to come will not believe; nothing will be left but graven words, and only the stones will tell of thy piety. For the gods – which once deigned to sojourn upon earth – will return from earth to Antumnos. The gods will depart from mankind, a grievous thing! The world will be left desolate, bereft of the presence of its deities.’

And this is, what our new single is dealing with!

However, that ancient text spells out clearly that we’re not simply talking about some mythological, religious or spiritual matters here. For it also talks very clearly about the development of mankind’s relationship with mother earth in that context and points out very concrete actions of ours (today) and their consequences in and for nature, and thus ultimately for us.

And so, we are excited to share our brand-new song with you all! And we hope you like it as much as we do and that maybe you even can find some inspiration in it! Enjoy!”

Eluveitie Premiere “Aidus” Music Video

Eluveitie have premiered a new video for their new single “Aidus.” Chrigel Glanzmann commented:

“Definitely one of the harshest songs of Eluveitie ever. It’s the sheer consequence of our spiritual journey with “Ategnatos.” We’re no longer a “Celtic Metal” band… a metal band singing about celtic history. We’re Celts playing metal music from all our hearts. We’re no more a “Pagan Metal” band. We are metal music playing pagans from all our hearts, gashing principles of our modern societies with our ancient message like a surgical blade. That’s probably the best way to describe our new single. Deal with it!”

Eluveitie, Insomnium, and Infected Rain have cancelled their North American tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. That trek was supposed to take place in September/October.

Eluveitie commented:

“Dear fellow metalheads,

You all have probably already suspected it – and it is with a heavy and bleeding heart that we have to confirm your apprehension:

Due to the current covid-19 pandemic we are now forced to cancel our upcoming North American tour.

Believe us, we are as much bummed as you are. Even more since we don’t know how long this crazy situation is going to last.

The only thing we can sincerely promise you is that we won’t give up, we won’t leave you hanging and that we will get a new North American tour up as soon as it will be possible again! And of course we’ll keep you posted on this!

And until that day we’ll do our very best to still give you as much as we can through the distance! If you’re not doing it already, please check our official social media channels as well as those of our particular band members – you’ll find a lot of worth watching stuff!

We’re with you all! Be safe!”

Eluveitie Premiere New Lyric Video For “Worship” Feat. Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe

Eluveitie have premiered a lyric video for their song “Worship.” This track features Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe and it appears on the band’s latest album “Ategnatos.”

The group commented:

“Here you go with our second lyric video for a song from our brand new album ATEGNATOS! It’s the second part of the two-song cycle of THE SLUMBER and WORSHIP!

A radical song with drastic lyrics on a severe topic: The ancient Celtic Sesroneos myth, in which our modern societies can and probably should reflect themselves as much as the people in ancient times could!

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and find some food for thought in it!

Special thanks to Randy Blythe of Lamb of God for an excellent performance!”
