Eluveitie to release new studio album “Ategnatos” on April 5th 2019

We all wade through archetypes. We all are archetypes. Distant echoes of a life both primeval and noble. To embrace these archetypes, to accept them not only as a part of life but as life itself is what some may call enlightenment, some peace of mind.

Eluveitie call it “Ategnatos”. And by using their longest gap between two Metal albums to gather momentum, they just forged their strongest album around it.
 
“Ategnatos” will be release on April 5th, 2019, via Nuclear Blast.

The band have already ensconced themselves at Tommy Vetterli’s Newsound Studio in Switzerland to kick off the recording process.

The band have released an official video statement from the studio. Watch it below.

Eluveitie re-sign to Nuclear Blast Records

Nuclear Blast Records is proud to anounce, that the Swiss folk metal stars Eluveitie have signed a new record deal with the German based label.

Over ten years ago, in November 2007, the unknown Swiss folk-metal newcomers Eluveitie signed their first contract with Nuclear Blast and became an internationally successful act, with the release of their label debut “Slania”.

Five more incredibly successful studio albums followed and now the band have signed a new deal with the label so that the formidable pairing can continue to produce even more greatness.

Mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann states:

Eluveitie to release “Slania - 10 Years” anniversary edition on November 16th 2018

In February 2008 the, then rather unknown, Swiss folk-metal newcomers Eluveitie published an album which would later be heralded as one of the most important reasons for the band's break-through: “Slania”.

What Eluveitie achieved with that album is not something you could call a phenomena. It's much more the product of hard, passionate work; the kind of work you put into something you love with all your heart.
